Summertime is here, which means visiting friends and family, cookouts and going to your local beaches. It also means an increase in juvenile crime. Between the months of May and August juvenile crime rises for such reasons as boredom, lack of supervision and peer pressure. PGA National experiences increases in thefts, burglaries to vehicles, and vandalism. Many of the crimes committed by juveniles are crimes of opportunity.
Do not become a victim of opportunity. It is important that you lock your vehicle whenever it is parked and under no circumstance leave anything of value in your vehicle. Remember to set your house alarm whenever you leave your home: ask a neighbor to keep a look after your home while you are away.
For many of you the summer is a time to take a well-needed vacation. For your peace of mind while you are away, please stop by any gatehouse in PGA National and ask for a “Property Check” form. Once completed, you can return it to any gatehouse. If you prefer, you can use the Internet (ABDI) to set up a property check while you’re away. Property Checks will be performed twice a week.
As your security provider we are working hard to give you, the residents of PGA National, the best possible service. With your cooperation, we can strive to meet this goal. There is a lot of activity in PGA National during the day. As residents, if you see anyone that looks suspicious in your neighborhood do not hesitate to call security at 627-1600.
Thank you, be safe and enjoy your summer.
