November 2018


In the month of November, I was able to make three new beat contacts in Beat 09.  I met with Mr. Leroy Vacek, who lives on Cedar Drive.   Mr. Vacek had no problems or complaints within the beat.  I also met with Mrs. Gloria Alderete, who lives on Crestwood Drive.  Mrs. Alderete was very concerned that the cul-de-sac on the end of Crestwood Drive is very dark at night and there is significant foot traffic from the nearby apartment complexes going to Wal-Mart and Valero.  I referred her to City Hall, as I am unfamiliar with the requirements to request a street light be installed.   I also met with Mr. David Brown, who lives on Lamar Drive.  Mr. Brown had no major problems or complaints about the beat, other than vehicles occasionally speeding down Lamar Drive.  Mr. Brown stated that he is a retired teacher and has lived at that location since 1969.   I located a gold 2004 Chevrolet Malibu 4-door, bearing Texas license plate number #HCK-4815, parked in the parking lot at Lamar Park Apartments, 1720 FM 1640, near the 700 building, which was in violation of the junk vehicle ordinance.  The registration was expired since September of 2018 and was registered to a subject from Hungerford.  The vehicle had a flat front tire and was very dusty, as if it had been sitting for some time.  I was unable to locate an owner, so I issued a junk vehicle warning for the vehicle and placed it on the vehicle windshield.  I made a school visit to Deaf Smith Elementary.  I located a needy family within my beat to participate in the upcoming Santa Behind the Badge program.  I met with the single registered sex offender in Beat 09 and verified that all of his information was current and accurate.
