Now that the holiday season is upon us, we should all think about a few things when it comes to our safety and security. During this time of year, many people are often busy, excited and sometimes can become careless about their personal safety.
It is extremely important for residents to call security when something looks wrong or out of place. Our patrol officers are happy to respond and check out any suspicious incident. Residents can report suspicious incidents – anonymously if you choose – by calling (561) 627-1600.
The economy being what it is means there are just that many more people walking around looking for opportunistic chances to commit crime. Criminals have become more brazen and their schemes more elaborate. In my previous article I mentioned a rise in distraction crimes. Lately, local law enforcement agencies have been investigating what has become known as Imposter Burglaries.
Imposter Burglars only operate during the day, target the elderly and work in teams of 2 or more. They may wear uniforms, have fake I.D. cards and pose as utility workers, inspectors, tree trimmers, painters, cable repairmen, exterminators or any other type of worker – in order to gain the confidence of the victim and enter the residence. Once inside they will distract the victim in order to steal valuables. Palm Beach Gardens PD remains vigilant in their patrols here as do we. If you encounter any of these similar scenarios contact security as soon as possible.
As your security provider we are working hard to give you, the residents of PGA National optimum service. This goal is easily attained with your cooperation. As residents, if you see anyone that looks suspicious in your neighborhood do not hesitate to call security at 627-1600. Remember to report all suspicious vehicles, person(s), and activity.
