Wheel and Tire Theft and Crime Information
Please see the below message from your NPO - Officer Cole;
I wanted to give everyone a heads up that we have a wheel / rim thief that is hitting our area at night. The suspect stole the rims and tires off of a 2014 GMC Sierra pickup on Tuesday June 6, 2017 at 3:30 am and he didn’t finish until around 4:30 am. The suspect was in a silver 2 door Dodge pickup. If you do not have wheel nut locks on your rims and tires, please get some. You can buy them at AutoZone or any auto parts store (See the attached link). These were factory rims, not aftermarket. Also if you have a pickup, please lock your tailgate. I have not had any tailgate thefts in almost a year now and I would like to keep it that way. If they are locked, it’s harder for them to steal and odds are they will go find one that is unlocked. Other NPO’s and I are coming in and working nights in an attempt to catch this suspect along with the other suspect’s that keep walking the neighborhoods looking for unlocked vehicles. PLEASE remember to lock your vehicles. I know I am sounding like a broken record but I need everyone to please lock your vehicles. If you are leaving anything of value in your vehicle, please hide it. If you own and carry a firearm in your vehicle with you, PLEASE take it inside your residence when you get home. If you do leave your weapon in your vehicle, please invest in a gun safe for your vehicle. The reason I am saying this, on Friday June 2 from 8:00 pm to Saturday June 3 at 9:16 am an unknown suspects entered the victim’s unlocked vehicle and took his handgun.
PLEASE if you ever see anything suspicious, ALWAYS call 911. Don’t ever say anything to the suspect if you witness them committing a crime. Be very discrete and hide so that the suspect does not know you are watching them and call 911 and be the best witness for us. That way we can arrive on scene and catch them in the act and put them in jail. I wish we could be everywhere all the time but that is not possible. So the BEST way to help keep your neighborhood safe is to always report suspicious activity. One great way to get involved is our Code Blue - C.O.P. program (Citizens on Patrol). We will send you to a 4 hour class to teach you what to look for and when to call 911. There is no set amount of time you have to volunteer for. I understand we are all busy with our daily lives but if you every go for a walk in your neighborhood or do yard work, than you can be a Code Blue member. Please help us (FWPD) help you keep our neighbors safe. If you do not have security cameras, please look into getting some. It is a great investment and helps protect you and your property.

We were informed this afternoon by Tarrant County Public Health there has been another confirmed West Nile Virus (WNV) positive mosquito sample collected in your area at Fire Station 36, 5045 Columbus Trail, 76133.
It’s extremely important that residents continue to reduce the mosquito population by removing mosquito habitats from your property and to remind your neighbors.
When you’re outdoors, remember to wear repellent that contains DEET.
We want to remind you the most effective means of protection, even more protective than spraying, is to stay focused on the reduction of the mosquito population:
- Please check your yard for standing water in empty flower pots, pet bowls, toys, etc.
- Maintain your swimming pool.
- Wear clothing with long sleeves and pants when applicable.
- Avoid being outdoors during dawn and dusk when mosquitoes are most active.

CFW: Storm Yard Debris Collections
Dear Neighborhood Leaders,
As a result of the recent spring storms throughout Fort Worth, the City understands some residents may have larger than normal bulk and brush piles. For your next bulk collection, the City will allow yard debris piles larger than 10 cubic yards. This is extended only for debris as a result of the storms – no appliances, mattresses or furniture, etc.
Please follow these simple guidelines will help the contractors stay on schedule for collection:
- Place bulk items on the curb by 7 a.m. Monday of your assigned week. You may place items on the curb as early as 6 p.m. the Friday before your assigned week.
- Tree limbs that are greater than four inches in diameter or longer than eight feet are considered bulk.
- Yard waste collections include small tree limbs, shrubs and bagged yard debris. These items should be smaller than four inches in diameter and less than eight feet long.
- Yard waste is collected weekly, the same day as your garbage and recycling.
- If you’re putting out other bulk items, such as furniture they need to be kept separate from the yard debris to allow for proper and timely collection.

New Email Scam
There's a new email scam that's targeting parents who worry a child predator may be living in their neighborhood.
The Better Business Bureau has put out a warning not to open any emails with the subject line;
"Alert: There is a Child-Predator Living Near You."
The BBB says the email claims to be a notification that "A registered-child-offender has just moved into your area based on your local area zip code." It then provides a link to "learn more about this predator-alert."
If you click on the link you're redirected through several sites that install malware on your computer that searches for usernames, passwords and credit card information. You then end up on the page for "Kids Live Safe" which is a legitimate BBB-accredited business. "Kids Live Safe" is not affiliated with the scam.
How can you protect yourself?
If you never signed up for custom email alerts you shouldn't be receiving them.
Check out the "From" field: Look out for email addresses that don't match the brand used in the email message.
Watch for typos, strange phrasing and bad grammar.

To All Homeowners: Keeping Our Community Looking Good
We need all of our resident's help in keeping our community looking its' best. Please do your part and remember:
You may set out your trash cart no earlier than after 6 p.m. the night before your pickup day.
- Please make sure to set the trash can and recycling bin apart so that the truck arms do not knock over the bins, creating a mess and slowing down the operator.
- Be sure to remove your carts from the curb and store them properly by midnight of your pickup day.
- Do not store garbage cans on the exterior of the home. Trash cans must be stored out of public view.
- Boxes are to be broken down and all items placed at the curb are to be secured so they will not be blown about the neighborhood.
Pet ownership can be a pleasure but they are often a common cause for complaints. Pets are always welcomed in Hulen Heights, but please remember:
- Pets are not allowed to roam freely through other yards and common areas, they need to be on a leash.
- Please pick up after your pet
- Both issues are violations of the City of Fort Worth Ordinances, which can result in fines of up to $500.00
- If you spot a pet wandering loose (it could be from another area, no way of knowing) or if you see someone not picking up after their pets, feel free to call Animal Control at (817-392-1234).
- For more information regarding the City’s Laws on Animal Control please visit: http://fortworthtexas.gov/animals/default.aspx?id=8858
Please make sure to remove all holiday decorations no later than January 30, 2015.
Thank you for taking pride in the appearance of our community. Your cooperation is appreciated!

City Councilman, District 6
Fort Worth, Texas
I am a resident of (Hulen Heights) that will be affected by this project. This is the first I've heard about your proposed development, which I'm sure is no fault of yours (though I feel fairly certain your company prefers it that way). From the renderings, it's plain to me that this is an apartment complex. To call it anything else is disingenuous. Your description is sufficiently vague to fool some into thinking this is some sort of high-end development along the lines of a Montgomery Plaza, for instance. But a "central community plaza...connected to a restaurant patio" sounds to me like a euphemism for a pavilion like any other you would find at an apartment complex. You have not identified any corporate partners specifically that have committed to this "mixed-use" development. I think this is a terrible addition for the area. Furthermore, I don't believe it adds anything that I, for one, "desire" in my neighborhood. On the contrary, I'm concerned that it will continue to overcrowd the area with more residents while discouraging the kind of retail development that truly would make a difference for the people who already live here. I don't want it in my neighborhood.
