Security within Pinecrest will be changing as the future scope of work that was put out to bid for security within Pinecrest requires security services with SLED certified officers in marked patrol vehicles at various times throughout day and night.† Patrol times and the coverage hours billed are to be verified by electronic guard scan or similar timekeeper system.† Pool officer coverage to be 7 days per week while pool is opened for season.† Security team will provide roaming services to monitor community for trespassers, unusual activities, log parking violations, tow if needed and with the possibility of issuing speeding tickets.
Initial quotes show that we will be able to do this upgraded coverage without any significant increase to our current costs.

Please be a good neighbor and remove all newspapers in your viewing area if still on the ground for 24-hours after delivery.
Also, if you see your neighbor has had a parcel delivered and it is still sitting there after 24 hours, give your neighbors a call and let them know they have a package sitting on the stoop.
If your neighbors cannot be reached, be a watchful neighbor and move the package somewhere where it is not easily seen from the street.
These simple deeds should help to discourage crime in Pinecrest
