Oak Creek Village contracts with the Harris County Sheriff's Department to supply the Village with an on-site deputy, almost 24-7. The gaps in coverage are random and not published. This service is our primary defense against crime, and we are very proud to be the safest subdivision in the area, according to the Sheriff's Department.
However, the following services are also available to all residents, and are a valuable adjunct to our contact deputies. Please do not hesitate to use them when necessary.
The Harris County Sheriff's Office offers the Home Security Review program conducted by Sheriff's deputies and designed to help deter residential crime. Sheriff's deputies will conduct the review on site and focus on making sure your home is as secure as possible in order to avoid being an easy target for burglars. Once the review is completed, the homeowner will receive a "Home Security Review" yard sign. You can call the Sheriff's Office Crime Prevention Unit at 713-759-9454 to schedule a free appointment.
