The Blue Star program is administered jointly by the Houston
Police Dept. and the Houston Apartment Assn.
The Westchase District places special signage on all Blue Star
certified properties in our area.

WESTCHASE DISTRICT LEADS THE CITY IN BLUE STAR CERTIFICATIONS
Blue Star certification is earned only by those
apartment communities where ownership and management are committed
to maintaining the safest possible environment for residents and
guests. It's a distinction that can only be awarded by the Houston
Police Department (HPD).
Becoming Blue Star certified is a three-stage process. Apartment
managers must first complete 8-hours of comprehensive training on
topics ranging from access control and lighting, to tenant
screening, employee training, and eviction procedures.
The second stage is for each apartment community to undergo a
property inspection. An HPD officer inspects the property to make
sure it complies with all city codes, plus the standards of the Blue
Star program. They look for code violations – wiring problems,
leaking roofs, potholes, or peeling paint. Plus they look at
perimeter fencing, mail room lighting, laundry room access, dumpster
access and whether or not building numbers are visible. They also
check to make sure the landscaping is not overgrown, allowing
criminals an opportunity to hide.
After a favorable HPD inspection, the community manager then
hosts a Safety Social at the property. Residents are invited for a
gathering featuring food, sodas, and door prizes. They’re presented
with general public safety information and learn of their
community’s commitment to the Blue Star program. The Safety Social
is the last step before the community manager is presented with
special Blue Star signage, telling all residents and guests that the
property is a participant in the HPD Blue Star program.
As of December 20, 2011, 28 Westchase District apartment communities
have received their Blue Star certification.
