Patrol News

We just presented our six month report to the Board.  Overall, the numbers of calls we handle has not increased compared to last year.  We handled a few more alarm calls and our vehicle collisions are less than they were this time last year.   Burglaries are up- we are working closely with the Sheriff on these cases.  Although we have  a spike in burglaries, the crime rate here is low.  Residents are encouraged to lock up and turn the alarm on!  Many of our burglaries are entry through unlocked doors- simple steps can deter the crooks and keep your place safe. Take good, clear photos or video of your valuables- jewelry, computers, cameras, etc.  Take a picture of the serial number if it has one. Keep it up to date too. 
If you see anyone that doesn’t belong, or a car that doesn’t fit, call us.  We will check it out.  Call right away.  It doesn’t help to hear about a suspicious person two or three days after the fact.
