Lt. Lance Koppa performs many of the crime prevention duties in Highland Park. Lt. Koppa is a member of the Texas Crime Prevention Association and is a state certified Crime Prevention Specialist.
In the effort to reduce crime, we must work together to reduce the "opportunity" that a crime will take place. Things to avoid:
Open garage doors
Valuables left in plain view inside a vehicle
Unlocked entry doors
All of these areas are examples where a slight change could significantly reduce the chances that you will be a victim of a crime.
Email Lt. Koppa or call his office number at 214-559-9487 if you have questions regarding personal safety and property protection. We may not be able to remove the "desire" or "ability" for an individual to commit a crime, but we can certainly reduce the opportunity for a crime to take place.
