KILLEEN, Texas (KWTX) A spike in vehicle burglaries in a Killeen neighborhood has residents reaching out to their councilman for answers.

District 4 Councilman Steve Harris met with several of his constituents Monday night about the rise in crime in their neighborhoods.

Harris says residents living along Alamocitos Creek, Bridgewood Drive and Clear Creek Road have reported their vehicles broken into or stolen from outside their homes this year.

He is proposing to start a neighborhood watch program where neighbors look out for each other and report any suspicious activity happening around them through a social media app.

“Our plan is to basically go out, hit the streets and knock on doors. I have a committee set up already where we are going to start community meetings and get police to give us statistics on crime and what we can do to prevent situation like these,” Harris said.

The next meeting will be sometime in January 2019.

Harris says he will post more information on when it will take place on his Facebook page “In the loop with Killeen city councilman Steve Harris”.
