The Federation of Greater Baton Rouge Civic Associations

 announced in March, the partnership between the Baton Rouge Police Department and the Civic Associations of Baton Rouge. This endeavor will begin within the city limits but plans to expand to the entire parish. The BRPD will cultivate a direct line of communication with the Civic Associations regarding criminal activity within the city limits in order to meet the needs of the citizens of Baton Rouge.

Because Greater Oak Hills Civic Association is a member of the Federation of Greater Baton Rouge Civic Associations, Custom Security is offering discounts (thru 12-31-14) to our 2014 GOHCHA members.  Custom Security will verify that the applicant is a current member.

Safety Reminders

Reminders from our safety liaison:

* Record serial numbers of all firearms or anything of value that you have. 

* Take pictures of your jewelry. 
* Keep these lists at a place other than your residence, i.e.:  office, relative’s homes, etc. 

* Take a few minutes and protect yourself.  SET YOUR ALARMS, even if going out for “a few minutes”.

* Lock your car doors.

NOTE:  Many items are stolen and subsequently recovered by law enforcement but are not able to be traced and returned because the victim could not provide identifying information. 

Fire Ants

October and March are the 2 months to put out fire ant baits in your yards.  It is recommended that you alternate putting Amdro and Extinguish.  If everyone would do this during these two designated months, there would no longer be fire ants in our neighborhood!
