When to Contact the Houston Police
Generally, it’s a good rule of thumb to contact the HPD in circumstances like (but not limited to) the following:
- You are concerned a crime is happening and/or someone’s life (even your own) may be in danger.
- You are in a car accident that results in any injuries or property damage of at least $1,000.
- After a car accident, another driver seems intoxicated or is threatening you.
- Another driver hits you and flees the scene.
- After a crash, another driver doesn’t have a license or auto insurance.
- You witness an auto wreck (sharing what you saw with police investigating the accident).
- The wreckage of a car accident is blocking traffic (regardless of whether you are a party to the crash).
Remember, police may not be the only resources in Houston that you have after an accident or traffic crash hurts you or someone you love. An experienced personal injury lawyer can offer important help too, explaining your rights and options for recovering.
