The holiday season is just around the corner.  This is also a time of year to be more aware of your surroundings at home, at work, and while you are out and about.

My deputies will be working hard to keep your neighborhoods and businesses safe during this busy time of the year.  This is also a time to look at your personal safety and property as far as security goes.  Are you keeping your doors locked at your home? Many people have alarm systems and cameras now. Are the systems up and working correctly?  Are your vehicle doors locked while parked at home, at your place of business, and while you are out shopping?

Speaking of shopping, are you keeping your wallets, purses, and all personal property secure, when you are out and about and away from your home.  This is also the time of year to be neighborly — to help your neighbors, and assist them in ways to be safe and secure.

This could be a trying time for family, friends and neighbors who live by themselves.  They may need some assistance and to see a friendly face.  It may be the time to visit and make sure they are safe, and see that they are not an easy victim of a potential crime, and all their needs are met.

The Sheriff’s Office is here to help you 24/7.  If you see a suspicious vehicle in your neighborhood, or just does not look right to you, do not hesitate to call 911 or the non-emergency telephone number at 817-573-3307. Press 2 for a dispatcher. Or Call 911 always if it is an emergency.

Hood County Emergency Management has a link on the websites for the city of Granbury and Hood County, to set up an account with Everbridge Mass Notification System.  This is a site for mass notification of emergency events that may be in your area.  In case of severe weather events, you will automatically be notified if the event is in your area.  If the event is in your area, the notification will come directly from the National Weather Service.

This will also notify you of other life and safety events that may occur in your area if you are registered.  If you have any questions on how to register, contact The Emergency Management Office of Hood County by calling 817-579-3335.

Be safe, but help us to look out for problems. My deputies can’t be everywhere, so help us to help you. | 817-579-3330
