Public Safety

Shenandoah Police Department

The Shenandoah Police Department is proud to be a Texas Police Chief’s
Association Foundation – Best Practices Recognized Law Enforcement Agency,
the first agency in Montgomery County to achieve this status.

With 25 members on staff, Shenandoah Police are responsible for public safety in the city’s
residential neighborhoods, commercial areas, and along Interstate 45. The police also support a
number of community events and initiatives aimed at public safety awareness, such as National
Night Out, Halloween Safe Streets, and Neighborhood/Business E-Watch.

In 2010, the Shenandoah Police Department launched
the “Areas of Responsibility (AOR)” program. This
innovative program assigns each police officer to a
specific area of the city that they are directly
responsible for. They become aware of the normal
activities in their areas and get familiar with the
residents and/or merchants. The program has been
effective in building relationships with the community
and has been very well received.

Code Enforcement

The Shenandoah Police Department handles all code enforcement matters in the city. Contact
them at 281-367-8952 with any questions or concerns.

You can find the entire Code of Ordinances here.

Fire Safety

The Woodlands Fire Department serves all areas of Shenandoah and The
Woodlands. They have eight stations and over 150 employees who all
undergo rigorous training programs on a regular basis.

Their responsibilities include firefighting, hazardous materials emergencies, medical calls, swift
water rescue, collapse rescue and trench rescue. They are fully trained and equipped to
respond to these incidents.

Medical

Emergency Medical Services

Medical facilities in Shenandoah and in The Woodlands fall within the Montgomery County
Hospital District, a political subdivision formed in 1977 to provide indigent care to residents in
the county. This agency covers 1,100 square miles and a population of over 455,000, and
responds to around 45,000 calls for medical assistance each year. They have an exceptional
“first responder” program that allows trained professionals to quickly arrive on the scene of
life-threatening events. This response time provides consistency of care and the security of
county-wide medical coverage.

Hospitals

A number of specialty and acute care facilities, small emergency clinics and other medical
service providers are located throughout The Woodlands and Shenandoah, along with two
major hospitals.
