HOUSTON, Aug. 5 (Xinhua) -- A public security seminar was held by 23 local organizations on Saturday, the first of its kind, to improve safety and security in Chinatown area of Houston in southern U.S.

In the seminar, police officers as well as attorney gave instructions to local residences to protect themselves while building good relationship with others.

Kim K. Ogg, District Attorney of Harris County, where Houston locates, told Xinhua that west side of Houston where the Chinatown is located has to be a focus of law enforcement because it is suffering as the second highest of robbery in the city.

According to Ogg, robbery is the biggest problem in that area. "Killing someone in the course of robbing them...becomes common place in Chinatown. We know how much this community needs help. So we are responding along with the police chief, another law enforcement and the business community to have a coordinated effort to stop these robberies," she said.

When interviewed by Xinhua, lawyer Jessica W. Chen said that in order to maintain security and stability of Chinatown, the government should invest more.

"There needs to be more police patrolling, more lights on the streets. We also need a hot line in Chinese," she explained.

Chinatown is one of the areas with worst security situation in Houston, where robberies are happening on daily basis.
