HPD Tip of the Month - Help the
Community by Dropping Off Your Old Cell Phone
Most of us have a least one
old cell phone lying around the house. Instead of leaving them to take up
space in a drawer, the Henderson Police Dept asks that you donate your old
cellular phones to be refurbished and given to residents who need them in
case of emergency.
It's quick and easy to drop
your phone in the collection sites at any of our
substations. We don't need the box, books or any accessories that came
with it. Your phone will be sent to
where they will delete all old numbers, text messages and photos. The
refurbished phone will soon be back in the hand of the Henderson Police
Dept, where officers will be able to pass it on to
neighborhood watch participants, domestic
violence victims and or anyone who may need to call the police in an
If you are a volunteer and
want to participate, challenge yourself or your group to collect as many old cell phones
as possible. Or how about setting up a collection box at your place of
business? The simple act of donating a phone you're not using can truly make a difference
in someone's life!
For more information on cell phone collection, contact
the HPD Community Relations Unit at (702) 267-5100.
Officers are available to attend your
board meeting to discuss
Community Policing Programs and how to start a Neighborhood Watch.

Lisa's Landscape Corner:
Is it too
late in the year to prune my trees?
-by Lisa Ortega, City of Henderson Urban Forester
There’s nothing better than our Southern Nevada winters
- we are so lucky to live in a place with such mild weather!
Many of us are still pruning
our trees, but be careful - varieties such as Fan Tex Ash or Ornamental
Pears trees are ready for their buds to pop open. With all their stored energy,
they are ready to show off their
new annual leaves.
A good rule of thumb to help you decide if it's too
late in the year for pruning is to see if your trees look as if they're ready to ‘break’.
Do the tips of the stems look
swollen? If so, you’ve still got time to select a few branches for pruning.
You can get to those branches that are rubbing on each other or just going
the wrong direction for the site.
Remember, don’t take off more than
25 percent of the tree at one time. Leaves make the ‘food’, so you don’t want
to starve your tree from much needed energy and sugars that it will need to
produce. Also, don’t prune too much off the south or west side of your tree
to avoid sun damage on previously sheltered bark! When it comes to pruning,
less is more!
