Residential Security

Residents should consider the following options to increase the security in your apartment or condominium:

Underground Garage Area

  • Stop once you are inside and remain near the door until the garage door closes to prevent any unwanted individuals from entering.
  • Lock your vehicle and remove all valuables.
  • Valuables such as bicycles should be locked in a secure area or storage room.

Entrances

  • Never let anyone in that you don’t know.
  • Report all issues regarding doors, locks, and security concerns to your property manager right away.

Apartments/Condos

  • Lock your doors, windows, and draw your shades at night.
  • Install deadbolt locks of good quality with a 1-inch throw.
  • Add security strike plates – heavy duty plates approximately 6 inches long that use four to six 3-inch screws.
  • Install 180-degree, wide angle viewer to your door.
  • Secure all sliding glass doors with a length of wood in the track or by adding a Charley Bar.


Call 9-1-1 if you see or hear anything suspicious.
