DO YOU HAVE QUESTIONS? Go to “Frequently Asked Questions” (“FAQs”) on our PROUD Website: http://www.quailvalleyproud.com/faqs.php
IF YOU DO NOT FIND THE ANSWER TO YOUR QUESTION: Email the PROUD HOTLINE at QVProud@aol.com. I will “promptly” email you the answer.
HOME INVASIONS? FYI: The Missouri City Police Department Crime Report indicates, in our CITY, the numbers of “invasions” are LOWER than ever.
TWO TYPES OF ROBBERIES? (1) Driveway: Victim is followed home, usually from a shopping center. They are picked at random. (2) Home Invasions: Victims are “targeted” for specific reasons: * Known to keep large amounts of cash in their home * Known to have large amounts of items that can be easily removed from the home and resold on the “street”. This could be drugs, valuable jewelry, guns, etc.
TWO TYPES INCREASED CRIMES? (2) Shop Lifting and (2) Burglary of Commercial Businesses.
HOW TO AVOID AND PROTECT YOURSELF IN A HOME INVASION? Attend the next QV FUND HOA Meeting at the QV Golf Course GRILLE on Monday, May 9th at 7:00 pm.
PROUD IS REQUESTING YOUR HELP? Does your home back up to a green belt area, such as a park or golf course? If so, please help our Police and Fire departments by displaying your street name & number on the back yard wall of your home or on the gate of your wrought iron back yard fence.
NOTE: Some homes are adjacent to these green belt areas on the side of their house instead of the back. Please post your address where it can be seen from the park or the golf course.
WHY IS THIS NEEDED? This way when people are in the parks or on the golf courses and they see suspicious activity they can report with a “real” address instead of a golf hole number or, in the case of a park, they have NO “reference points” to give to the dispatcher.
