With the summer months upon us, there are some concerning developments taking place involving gated communities. Local law enforcement agencies in areas such as Martin County, the Treasure Coast, and Jupiter have all seen a rise in residential and auto burglaries. Collectively, these agencies feel the number of incidents will grow over the next few months. Officials believe that a lack of safety practices will contribute to the rise of these incidents.
This year alone, PGA National has experienced sixteen auto burglaries and two residential burglaries. The lack of safety practices officials fear that will contribute to the rise in burglary incidents include leaving your vehicle unlocked/unsecured with valuables inside, which was a factor in all of the auto burglaries within PGA National so far this year. In one of the auto burglaries a gun was taken from the vehicle. In both residential burglaries, neither home alarm was not set. Officials have stated that to greatly reduce your chances of becoming the next victim of a burglary, simply lock your doors and set your alarm.
PGA National is a great community and we are extremely proud to serve you as your security provider. It is paramount that we work as one to curtail criminal activity within our community. Working together we can dismiss the belief that there are easy targets within PGA National and collectively ensure that the quality of life remains prevalent.
