The S.A.F.E. Unit targets properties known to be havens for specific criminal activity. The S.A.F.E. Unit notifies the property owners of the criminal activity and then assists cooperative property owners in putting an end to the criminal activity. These efforts are called abatement.

In those instances where the property owner chooses not to cooperate in the removal of these criminal elements, the S.A.F.E. Unit seeks court-ordered abatement and/or closure of the property. Uncooperative property owners risk losing access and/or the permanent use of their properties for a maximum period of one year.

For information on the legal statute that coveres S.A.F.E Unit activities, see Chapter 125 of the Texas Civil Practices and Remedies Code.
