Message from Sheriff Ed Gonzalez – Joining Forces for Our Children

Earlier this week, we kicked off Child Abuse Prevention Month at the steps of The Children’s Assessment Center with our most dedicated partners in the fight against child abuse in Harris County.

As a close-knit community of child advocates, we work as a team to protect our most vulnerable.

You are part of this team. We rely on our community to report abuse and keep our children safe when they see the signs of a child in need.

Blue and silver pinwheels outside The Children’s Assessment Center building were spinning in the wind, one for each of the 175 children who are victims of abuse in Texas every day.

Signs of abuse aren’t always obvious, but they are often there if you know where to look. We are asking every adult in our community to help. Take actionable steps to create safer environments for the children in your life:

  • If you see something, say something. Reporting suspicions of child abuse can save a life, prevent further victimization, or stop more children from being victimized.
  • Learn how to recognize and report child abuse. Education and training are our best defense against those who harm children.
  • Talk to your children. Start the conversation early and continue the discussion throughout their upbringing.
  • Spread the message. Tell your neighbors and loved ones how they, too, can do their part to keep our children safe in a real and virtual world.

Our partners at The CAC offer free training and resources on the signs and symptoms of child abuse and share stories of survivors throughout the year. In April, they’re hosting additional training and virtual workshops on child abuse awareness and prevention. For more information on what’s in store and how to get involved, click here.

As first responders, we work tirelessly to investigate allegations of child abuse. We also work hard to identify and combat human trafficking cases, especially those involving a juvenile.

There aren’t many jobs in our agency that are tougher than being a child abuse investigator. These incidents are horrific, heartbreaking cases of abuse and neglect involving an innocent and defenseless child.

But it’s an important calling that offers the chance to make a difference in the lives of our community’s great asset: our children.

Our investigators’ role in child abuse cases spans the entire case from the initial call, through the investigation, and to the court proceedings. Our Crimes Against Children Unit stays involved in the investigation as the victim and their family receive the proper treatment, services, and support from advocacy centers to start their healing process. It’s a coordinated response from the start.

Sadly, in 2020, nearly 4,000 children received services at The CAC. These experts provide high-quality care so children can thrive. Their work embodies the sentiment: “No future should be out of reach.”

And while the work of our specialized unit is always essential, it is especially critical during a crisis. The disruption brought on by the pandemic made our children even more vulnerable to abuse. Some of those traditional safety nets have been removed with children not regularly attending schools, daycares, and after-school programs.

With violent crime on the rise over the past year, Harris County is investing in overtime pay meant to help our investigators target violent criminals in several key areas, including tackling child abuse investigations.

We have a shared responsibility and shared commitment to ensure every child lives a life free from abuse. Prevention through education is key.

If you’re concerned about a child in your life, call us at 713-221-6000. If you want to remain anonymous, report tips to Crime Stoppers of Houston at 713-222-TIPS.

We are grateful for the opportunity to stand together with the many partners in our region who work to end child abuse for all.

Boil Water Notice Rescinded

On February 17, 2021, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality required Harris County Municipal Utility District No. 150-TX1011250 to issue a Boil Water Notice to inform customers, individuals, or employees that due to conditions which occurred recently in the public water system, the water from this public water system was required to be boiled prior to use for drinking water or human consumption purposes.

The public water system has taken the necessary corrective actions to restore the quality of the water distributed by this public water system used for drinking water or human consumption purposes and has provided TCEQ with laboratory test results that indicate that the water no longer requires boiling prior to use as of February 23, 2021.

The Boil Water Notice was issued as a result of the City of Houston’s issuance of a Boil Water Notice, as Harris County Municipal Utility District No. 150 receives its surface water from water providers that receive their water supply directly from the City of Houston.

If you have questions concerning this matter, you may contact WWWMS, Inc., the operator for Harris County Municipal Utility District No. 150, at 281-895-8547.

 

Boil Water Notice for HCMUD 150 Remains in Effect

Residents of Harris County MUD 150:

Although the City of Houston rescinded its boil water notice on Sunday, February 21st, the boil water notice for HCMUD 150 remains in effect. The HCMUD 150 operations team, in conjunction with the Central Harris County Regional Water Authority, is currently completing the water quality testing and reporting required by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ).

Once the District receives approval from the TCEQ that the water is safe to drink and that HCMUD 150 may rescind the boil water notice, HCMUD 150 will notify its residents and customers accordingly. It is anticipated that HCMUD 150 will be permitted to rescind the boil water notice once the test results indicate that water samples meet all regulatory standards and are safe for human consumption.

Updates to the status of the HCMUD 150 boil water notice will be provided via this website.

Please Conserve Water

We are currently no longer receiving water from HCMUD 180 due to them having issues with their well. At the moment, the water that we currently have in our system will only last 3-4 hours depending on demand. If everyone can please conserve water to make our supply lasts as long as possible, that would be appreciated. The boil water notice remains in effect.

Project Guardian

Hello All,

We are presenting Project Guardian, a project that bridges the gap between Law Enforcement Officers and our community with Autism. This is a free, voluntary, and confidential database offered, managed, and maintained by the Harris County Sheriff’s Office for Harris County residents. Interested family members will be able to enroll their loved one with autism into the program by providing information on the person via an online application on the HCSO public website. This information is available to deputies through dispatch should they receive a call for service to the person’s residence. As part of the program, once they register, I will be sending them a sticker that they could place on the house window so it can also alert the deputy that someone in the home is part of the project.

The families wanting to register their loved ones can do so by two ways:

  • They can visit our HCSO CIT Website at www.harriscountycit.org. Then on the top, right they will see “Project Guardian” – once they click on it will give them an overview of the program. Then at the bottom, it will say “Sign Up for Project Guardian.”
  • They can all also visit the HCSO webpage and at the bottom under “General Information and Services.”

We are very excited to be able to launch this. We are currently working on a social media video as well.
