Ever since he became the county’s top law enforcement official, Harris County Sheriff Adrian Garcia has tried to maintain a close relationship with the people he protects and serves. Department spokesman Ryan Sullivan says periodic town hall meetings open to the public are one effective way Garcia keeps in contact with them.

“We’re honored to be joined by our District Attorney Devon Anderson, Commissioner Jack Morman, from the area, Constables Phil Sandlin and Ken Jones, and Chief Bryan Clements. It’s a group of panelists that can truly speak to the core of citizen concerns, and talk about the ongoing operations and strategies that we’re using to reduce crime every day in Harris County.”

One area of concern that residents will be updated on is gang activity.

Earlier this year the Bloods and Crips were ordered out of one neighborhood, and Sullivan says that’s one area that has seen improvement.

“We do have ongoing concerns and problems fighting robberies and other various issues in the district, but overall Harris County crime is down. Our population continues to rise, and the officials that are sworn to protect the citizens are doing everything that they can to successfully reduce crime throughout the district.”

Sullivan says citizens will get to see firsthand what the department uses to protect them, including high risk operations, aviation, mounted patrol and skywatch.

“As Harris County continues to be one of the most desireable locations for families and businesses to come and start an economically viable future, it’s a matter of personal pride for the sheriff’s office and for all those sworn to protect the citizens of Harris County.”

The town hall meeting will be held from 6-8 p.m. at the Northshore Senior High School Auditorium on Castlegory.
