Security Awareness Reminder

Unfortunately, crime can always be a possibility when working or living in a highly populated area. Potential criminals will take advantage of any opportunity that presents itself. Texas Medical Center
Security Services works closely with the Houston Police Department, METRO Police, and all the police departments of our member institutions. About 85% of crimes on Texas Medical Center property are due to theft. We ask for your assistance in keeping our patients, employees, and visitors safe during their stay in the Texas Medical Center. 


See Something, Say Something

Report all suspicious activity to the TMC Security Services at 713-795-0000 or call 911.  If you see anyone loitering, wearing unseasonable clothing, or acting strangely, immediately report the situation.  If you need a personal safety escort, call TMC Security Services at 713-795-0000.

 

Vehicle Security

Do not leave any articles of value in plain view or unattended in your vehicle, (e.g. GPS systems, shopping bags, cell phones, laptops, money, wallets, or purses). Put them somewhere out of sight or take them with you.  Lock all doors and roll up all windows.

 

Safety & Security Tip

While out and about, present an alert appearance. Be aware of your surroundings; scan the area from time to time. Keep track of others near you and your personal property. Carry minimal cash and valuables, and wear minimal jewelry. Do not display cash openly, especially when leaving an ATM machine.

 

Personal Protection Plan

Avoid walking or running alone at night. Always walk in well-lit areas and avoid shortcuts, areas with minimal foot-traffic, doorways, bushes, and alleys where someone could hide. Walk at a steady pace
with a self-assured stride. Avoid using headphones while walking, driving, or jogging. If someone in a vehicle stops and asks for directions, answer from a distance. If in danger, scream and run, yell "fire," or carry and blow a loud whistle to attract attention. Hold your purse tightly, close to your body. Keep your wallet in a front or buttoned hip pocket, or side coat pocket. Have your key ready in your hand so you can open doors immediately. Trust your instincts. If you feel uncomfortable in a place or situation, leave right away and go to an area with lights and people.


Criminals Lok For

Someone looking friendly, timid, lost, bsent-minded, intoxicated, wearing earphones, or distracted with a cell phone. Someone unaware they are being followed until they are isolated. Someone parking close to a large vehicle that prevents witnesses from seeing what is happening. Someone with arms full of packages or a child.


Wear your ID

All Texas Medical Center employees and our tenants are asked to wear employee identification at all times when on Texas Medical Center grounds. Your badge should be clearly visible for easy and quick recognition.


Double Check

Make sure your individual workstation (computer), office, and personal belongings are secured or locked up when you are not present.

 

Make that Call

Always report a suspicious looking person, package, or device. Never touch a suspicious looking package or device. Report suspicious activity or persons immediately to the TMC Security Services at 713-795-0000.
