COLDSPRING — This first of many Community Services Program meetings is scheduled for Tuesday, and Sheriff Greg Capers looks to step up law enforcement in San Jacinto County with the help of the community.
Part of the sheriff’s program initiative is to provide to the community safeguard measures to help county residents from becoming a victim of a variety of crimes.
One such crime that is becoming a large problem in the area is people finding paper stuck to the rear windshield, which could lead to carjacking or worse.
The obstruction can be a ruse to allow a thief to get into a vehicle with the keys and other items, leading to a person’s entire life in jeopardy.
Law enforcement personnel offer suggestions should this happen, victims should drive away and remove the item later.
This type of information and more will be available at the Sheriff’s Office of Community Service Program. Capers said that county residents should plan to attend and bring a friend or neighbor along with a list of questions and concerns that are important to the community.
The meeting is set for 7 p.m. Jan. 11 at the Sheriff’s Office, 75 W. Cedar Ave., in Coldspring.
