Letter from the Copperfield Crime Watch Committee
Dear Copperfield Neighbors,
The media has recently reported information about an incident involving the president of the Copperfield Coalition and defined that organization as a "Copperfield Neighborhood Watch” committee. This has led many to believe that the Copperfield Crime Watch Committee and the Copperfield Coalition are the same entity. This is not true. The Copperfield Crime Watch Committee and the Copperfield Coalition are two separate and distinct entities.
The Crime Watch Committee acts as Copperfield residents’ forum for all concerns regarding safety issues within Copperfield. The Crime Watch Committee also manages the Sheriff’s Department contract, which consists of ten officers, and one sergeant. The Crime Watch Committee is funded by and reports directly to the Copperfield Community Association. More information can be found at: http://www.copperfield.org/watch.php
The Copperfield Crime Watch Committee does not support nor condone any of the alleged actions reported in the media. We strongly encourage any resident that witnesses suspicious or illegal behavior to contact the Sheriff's Department immediately, at 713-221-6000, for non-emergencies and 911 for all emergencies.
The Crime Watch Committee looks forward to continuing its mission of providing information about crime prevention to the Copperfield Community and its goal of working together with the community to keep Copperfield a safe and wonderful place to live.
Chair, Copperfield Crime Watch Committee

Copperfield Crime Watch Commitee
The Copperfield Crimewatch Committee is a committee of the Copperfield Community Association (CCA). It acts as a liaison between the CCA and the security patrol contractor. Currently the security patrol contract is with the Harris County Sheriff's Department.
The purpose of the Committee is to promote security and crime awareness, monitor the Contract Law Enforcement Agencies' performance and to maintain a neighborhood Crime Watch program. We are concerned with matters of security in Copperfield and welcome new members at any time.
Any resident living in Copperfield can be a member of the Crimewatch Committee. By attending three of four consecutive meetings you are eligible to be seated as a voting member.
The committee meets at 6:30 p.m. at the Copperfield Community Center located at 15409 Willow River Drive (next to Labay Jr. High). All Copperfield residents are welcome to attend.
The Crime Watch Program
Copperfield is a Crime Watch community. The purpose of Crime Watch is to raise the level of concern and awareness toward crime prevention and to create active participation between residents and law enforcement officers in the fight against crime. The Crime Watch program encourages neighbors to protect each others lives and property by watching for and reporting suspicious activities...the residents become the "eyes" of the patrolling deputies. The object is to prevent a crime from happening by having a deputy check out even the slightest irregularity in your street's normal routine. Our deputies would prefer to spend 10 minutes checking out a call rather than follow up on a crime that has already been committed.
For more information about the Crime Watch Program call the Copperfield Community Center at (281) 856-9060.
