Public Safety Meetings
Public Safety & Security Committee
Monthly Public Safety & Security meetings are held every 2nd Tuesday, 8 a.m. in the main Board Room of the White Oak Conference Center, 7603 Antoine Drive, Houston, Texas 77088. The District encourages commercial property owners and residents to attend monthly Public Safety and Security Meetings where law enforcement officers, private security personnel and concerned citizens work together to address security in the area.
The community is safer today than when the District was first created, thanks to innovative partnerships between the Constables, Houston Police Department, Harris County Sheriffs Office and private security forces working together to provide creative crime prevention initiatives. In fact, from 2009 to 2013, Part 1 crime dropped 69%. These results have made our area safer which allowed local neighborhoods and communities to grow economically and competitively to become a vibrant place for businesses and residents alike.
NNMD De-Litter Campaign
From March through September, the Near Northwest Management District collected over ten tons of trash off of the streets in our community. We were shocked! This is not how our neighborhoods should be treated. The problem with littering in our community has become pervasive, and it is up to us to put our best foot forward to remedy this issue plaguing our neighborhoods. This problem not only effects how other Houstonians view our area of town but also directly affects the value of our properties in Near Northwest. With your help, we can curtail the littering problem that we face.
IT IS TIME TO CLEAN THE NEST IN NEAR NORTHWEST!!! Let’s show the rest of Houston that we care about our community. The appearance of our community is not only the fault of the people littering. It is all of our faults for not picking up trash that isn’t ours, for ignoring garbage that has been thrown on our sidewalks and in front of our homes and business, and other people’s homes and businesses.
If you have are out walking around in the community and can’t find a trash can, then throw it in your bag, not on the ground. With a little help from all of you, we can help make Near Northwest a better place to live. Stop by the White Oak Conference Center and get a trash bag for your car!

Graffiti Removal Program
The Near Northwest Management District Graffiti Abatement program is designed to remove unwanted graffiti markings to improve the appearance and security of the District’s commercial and apartment properties. Graffiti lowers property values, reduces ridership on transit systems and encourages other crimes.
Our Graffiti Mobile allows both power-washing of graffiti and color paint matching to cover it. Our crew must obtain a legal waiver from a private property owner or authorized agent before abating graffiti on their property. The Graffiti Abatement program is offered at no charge to the District’s assessment- paying property owners.
If you have graffiti on your property or see graffiti elsewhere that you would like to removed, please contact the District at 713-895-8021 and we’ll make sure it’s addressed.
The District has an aggressive graffiti removal program and has constantly removed graffiti from public spaces and businesses by request. This effort has resulted in attention to trash removal and elimination of bandit signage.
All this work and the work of the Greater Inwood Partnership (GIP) and the probation program have brightened up the community and the community is responding positively by taking care of their community.

If You See Something, Say Something
Across the nation, we're all part of communities. In cities, on farms, and in the suburbs, we share everyday moments with our neighbors, colleagues, family, and friends. It's easy to take for granted the routine moments in our every day—going to work or school, the grocery store or the gas station. But your every day is different than your neighbor’s—filled with the moments that make it uniquely yours. So if you see something you know shouldn't be there—or someone's behavior that doesn't seem quite right—say something.
IT'S YOUR COMMUNITY. DON'T HESITATE. MAKE THE CALL.
The Near Northwest Management District is a partner of the DHS "If You See Something, Say Something™" campaign. We are dedicated to increasing awareness about public safety in our District and encourage each local citizen to report any and all observed suspicious activity to local law enforcement. FOR EMERGENCY SITUATIONS ALWAYS CALL 911!
