On September 6, 2002 The Houston Chronicle reported that "as Houston-area synagogue leaders fix their sights on forgiveness and atonement, they will also cast extra eyes on security in a holiday season that straddles the anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. The Houston Police Department will post on-duty officers and patrol cars at all city synagogues for holiday services, said department spokesman Robert Hurst. The department also will provide area surveillance for services."
