On April 21 the Montrose District, in partnership with the Houston Police Department, conducted a public safety workshop for area restaurant and bar owners. The focus of the presentation was to help owners and managers help protect their patrons from theft and burglary of their vehicles. The officers stated that summer especially brings out folks looking for easy targets by casing vehicles whose owners leave lap tops, cameras, and other easily stolen items in plain view. The District has “Store, Hide, Lock” signs available to area business owners to help reinforce the message to keep your valuables safe by placing them out of sight and not making them easily viewable by people walking past a vehicle.  Businesses interested in learning additional safety tips can visit
