SAFETY & SECURITY

Safety is a priority! All SAHA residents are encouraged to get involved in their communities. Get to know your neighbors and the staff at your complex. Be aware of your surroundings, contact property managers of maintenance and security issues, and report suspicious activity in playgrounds and/or parking lots.

For all emergencies, call 911.
SAHA works closely with the San Antonio Police Department (SAPD) to monitor crime and safety. SAPD is the first responder. Call 911 for all emergencies.

For non-emergency questions and concerns:

Get to Know Your Neighbors
Take advantage of National Night Out to greet your neighbors, whether they're long-time residents or just moved in. Make it a year-round habit to check in with each other. Get involved in a neighborhood association, neighborhood watch program, Cellular On Patrol program or Block Watch.

Report Suspicious Activity
Notify managers, SAHA staff, police, and/or courtesy officers of any suspicious activity, possible drug/gang graffiti, or security lights out in the complex.

Get to Know Your SAFFE Officer
