A Message from the Executive Director
This morning County Judge Lina Hidalgo, with the support of Mayor Turner, issued a mandatory “Stay Home. Stay Safe.” order that will start at midnight tonight. In order to support this effort, the International District will cease their graffiti and litter abatement and other non-essential services. Staff will continue to work remotely and all operations will remain closed until April 3rd, or until further guidance is provided by the Federal, State or local governments.
This order does NOT apply to our Public Safety efforts through SEAL Security. We remain committed to assisting our law enforcement partners in doing all we can to protect and serve our businesses and do our part to keep the community safe. You can contact SEAL Security Officers at 281.407.0801. Remember to always call 9-1-1 in case of an emergency.
