Beat Management Program

Did you know the City of North Richland Hills is divided in to eight districts, also known as “beats?” Do you know what beat you live in?

For the purposes of response to calls for service, the City of North Richland Hills is divided in to eight separate geographical areas, known as districts or beats. In the Beat Management Program, patrol officers get to select (based on seniority), their own beat and work in it every day. By utilizing this program, our officers can better serve the community and form a partnership with our citizens. By managing their beats on a daily basis, officers can get to know the people that reside and work in their assigned areas, and truly understand any associated problems within their individual beat. We encourage officers to interact with staff and students in schools, attend homeowners and neighborhood watch meetings and truly “get to know” their piece of the community.

If you have any questions or to see who your assigned officer is, follow the link to our website to learn more: Beat Officers

A Heartwarming Interview

Recently, Officer Morgan had the opportunity to meet with Ryan, a ten-year-old boy with Autism. His journey with finding his voice is truly incredible, and we were humbled and honored to be interviewed by him.

Officer Morgan writes of their time together:

“Yesterday, I had the incredible good fortune to meet Ryan. At one’s first impression, because he is non-verbal, one might make certain assumptions about his capabilities. I learned that Ryan has more to say than many people I know.

With the use of his letter board, Ryan and his mother Stephanie interviewed me for over an hour. When Ryan let me get a word in, , I asked him this question, “If there were just one thing I could teach officers about their interactions with autistic people, what would it be?” I jotted it down as he spelled it out and I’m attaching a picture as well as a picture of me and Ryan and Freckles, his autism assistance dog.

Ryan has a blog. If you are interested, here is the URL: www.iaminmyhead.com

What a great kid. Stop by anytime Ryan.”

 

Thank you for the visit Ryan!

Neighborhood Eyes

Working together for a safer community.

Have you heard about our program, Neighborhood Eyes? The idea behind the program is to enhance crime prevention efforts and work together with the community to solve crime. Many homeowners and business owners currently operate security video systems throughout the City of NRH. With Neighborhood Eyes, if crime occurs nearby, the camera database will alert us to valuable video footage that can help detectives during an investigation. This database omits the need for officers to go door to door attempting to obtain camera location and footage, allowing for a faster investigation. Often, by obtaining the footage and sharing the suspect via online means, we can obtain a positive ID on the suspect.

This registry is completely VOLUNTARY. The police department will NOT :

  • Take control of
  • Access
  • Use your cameras

In the event your location may have security video recordings that would be helpful to an investigation, our Officers or Detectives will contact you for your assistance.
