The following security programs are promoted by the WEST LANE PLACE CIVIC ASSOCIATION (WLPCA) and are operational in all of WEST LANE PLACE (WLP).

  1. CRIME ALERT SYSTEM. This is a very active WLPCA program that provides internet based security advisories. To report suspected criminal activity – after calling 911 – one may inform their neighbors by phone or email to: Ann Iverson at 713-622-3934, crimealert@wlpca.org.
  1. WLPCA NEIGHBORHOOD CRIME WATCH. This is a WLPCA program that encourages all WLP residents to be involved in neighborhood security. Various WLPCA members patrol and may have Crime Watch signs on their vehicle. This is managed by Security Committee Chair Mohammad Bayegan whose email is security@wlpca.org.
  1. HOUSTON POLICE DEPARTMENT CITIZEN PATROL for WEST LANE PLACE. This is an HPD program that is open only to individuals not associations. Mike Weingart manages this program and provides reports to HPD Officer Wayne Pate. Mike may be contacted at hpliaison@wlpca.org.  Volunteers must at least 18 years of age, have a valid Texas Driver License, pass an HPD background check, become trained by HPD, agree to patrol and complete HPD reports. WLPCA has facilitated and encourages individual residents of West Lane Place to participate in this program. Twenty volunteers (all of whom are WLPCA members) have been trained and approved by HPD, and some participate in both the CRIME WATCH and CITIZEN PATROL programs. After satisfactory completion of 6 months of patrols, HPD will provide vehicle identification and street signs.
  1. VEHICLE IDENTIFICATION DECALS. The WLPCA encourages all residents of WLP to place identifying decals on the rear windows of their vehicles to provide those on patrols with a means of readily identifying residents vehicles. Decals may be obtained by any West Lane Place resident – at no charge – from membership@wlpca.org.
