Robbery Prevention

Houston Language Bank (HLB) and our partners launched this Online Multi-Lingual Communications Initiative.

In partnership with the region's community and business stakeholders, international media, foreign consulates, chambers of commerce and Master Translators, HLB will generate in-language vital information in as many languages as needed for selected issues in public safety, water conservation and recycling for the region.

Bilingual - Multilingual Info Product Design & Digital Delivery

PRIORITY:  Critical

Houston Language Bank (HLB) designed and delivered this  Robbery Prevention information for Regional Language Communities.  HLB delivered these bilingual messaging PDF products to our regional communications partners, including in-language media, community organizations and refugee resettlement agencies.

Robbery & Theft are the Most Common Crimes 

From petty theft to armed assaults, a single criminal perpetrator can be responsible for scores of crime.  In our Greater Metro Region, these predators look for vulnerable targets like the elderly, women, youngsters and anyone else that is not paying attention to their surroundings.

Houston Language Bank, in response to this growing need, posts bilingual Robbery Prevention information for our Regional Language Communities.
