Greenspoint Mall can now boast a new service that no other mall in Texas can claim: a public safety kiosk in partnership with local Crime Stoppers.
The new public safety kiosk was unveiled last week at a joint Greenspoint Mall-Crime Stopper press conference. Greenspoint Mall General Manager Ray Bejarano said that the kiosk is one of only two in the nation. The other is in Atlanta. The kiosk is located in the center court area; the part of the mall Bejarano said has the heaviest traffic.
The kiosk utilizes touch-screen technology. Bejarano said that with the kiosk, mall visitors can access safety tips as well get a listing and pictures of Crime Stopper’s Top 10 Most Wanted Felons in the Houston area. The site will be updated approximately every two weeks.
The kiosk comes from a chance meeting at a North Houston Greenspoint Chamber of Commerce event between Bejarano and Crime Stoppers Executive Director Katherine Cabaniss.
“Our president (Chamber President Reggie Gray) introduced me to Katherine.” Bejarano said. “They (Crime Stoppers) like to take on new initiatives and they knew that we have a high traffic area. She showed me the prototype and it went from there.”
Bejarano said that they will be able to monitor how many people use the kiosk during a given time period. If it is well received, he said, he would like to see more installed throughout the mall.
