Garden Oaks Constable Program Needs YOU!

Your Constable Program support is needed!!.

The effort to increase the number of households in Garden Oaks supporting the Constable Program is necessary because of the loss of GOMO funding. We previously had three constable patrols, with two of those patrols being paid from GOMO surplus funds. That ended in 2016.

The civic club began the year 2020, with two contracts, each contract providing 40 hours of professional law enforcement officers patrolling in our neighborhood. Each contract costs about $77,000. In August one contract was ended because funding levels were not adequate to support two.

If everyone in the neighborhood contributed, the cost would be about $110 per household annually. Currently we have right at 334 supporters (out of some 1400 households in GO), which is not nearly enough to fund two patrols. We are asking each household to contribute a minimum of $250 annually to keep the deputies patrolling in our neighborhood.
We have distributed GO Constable Supporter signs to those who are paid for the current year and who have requested signs. If you would like a sign, please email goconstable@gmail.com. Please help us keep our neighborhood safe!
