Missouri City Police warn everyone to be alert to the parking rules in neighborhoods. Emergency vehicles must have clearance for turning onto streets, turning inside cul de sacs and for moving between parked vehicles. Personal vehicles will be damaged if blocking the way of emergency personnel.
MCPD urges citizens to park in their garages or driveways at night as a safety precaution. Avoid parking on the street as much as possible during the day to give full access to emergency vehicles. Park a safe distance from all corners to avoid meeting oncoming cars head-on.
To report illegal parking or other illegal activities, contact Missouri City Police at 281-403-8700.
Do not call 9-1-1 unless it is an emergency.
Brightwater initiated a Neighborhood Watch Program in 2009, working closely with the Missouri City Police Department. Our Police Liaison is Diane Giltner, 281-499-0695, firstname.lastname@example.org. The program has been successful in monitoring the subdivision and maintaining an active volunteer membership.
All Brightwater residents are encouraged to participate. Several times during the year, training sessions are held for new members.
The HOA provides magnetic decals for crime watch volunteers to attach to their vehicles while patrolling.
Brightwater already employs off-duty police officers to patrol the neighborhood during the evening hours. A Neighborhood Watch is therefore needed during the daytime between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.
To volunteer, please send your name and contact information to: Diane Giltner, 281-499-0695, or email@example.com
