About 60 residents turned out on May 15 to learn how police officers are preventing gang crimes, how to protect their property and what to do to help prevent illegal activity as part of a Gang Awareness and Auto Theft/Burglary Prevention Class held at the Community Center adjacent to City Hall.

Using intelligence-led policing strategies, the City’s Burglary and Auto Theft (BAT) Team has recovered more than $310,000 in stolen vehicles and personal property since the unit’s formation in September 2011.

Watch the City’s website, www.missouricitytx.gov, and Missouri City Television (Ch. 16 on Comcast and Ch. 99 on AT&T U-verse) for information on future public safety workshops.

Public safety handouts were provided to workshop participants.
