Security is a primary concern for the Atascocita Forest Community Association because we feel that everyone should be confident of the safety and security of their person, family, property, home, and neighborhood.
In the event of an emergency, CALL 911
Atascocita Forest is patrolled by off-duty police officers of both the Harris County Sheriff and Houston Police Department. The Atascocita Forest Community association has contracted with the Harris County Sheriff to provide dedicated, nightly security patrol in our neighborhood. Trail of the Lakes MUD has contracted with the Harris County Pct. 4 Constable to provide private security patrol throughout the MUD district, which includes Atascocita Forest.
Reporting Suspicious Activity
Our contracted Security Officers would like your help in reporting NON-911 activities to allow them to investigate problem areas. You can report this type of activity by filling out a form which is sent to Harris County Sheriff's directly, or by calling the non-emergency line of either department.
