You may have noticed a new “Neighborhood Watch” sign by each of our community entrances. Here’s what that’s all about.


As invited by Sheriff Snyder at last month’s presentation to our community, The Arbors has joined the “Neighborhood Watch” program promoted by the Martin County Sheriff’s Office. Doug Carson has volunteered to assist in this effort as Chair of our Safety Committee and I will act as the Board’s representative.


The program does not involve any citizen patrols, vigilante activities or the like. Rather, the intent is to keep the community informed about the latest crime trends throughout the area, and encourage citizen awareness of their surroundings and reporting of suspect activities in the Arbors. Toward that end, Doug and I will be attending regular briefings at the Sheriff’s office and issuing periodic updates on crime statistics and developments, along with the Sheriff’s latest advisories and recommendations.


We have been fortunate to date in that we have not been hit by the “Pillowcase Burglars” or others. However, we cannot assume that means it won’t happen in the future. So please, keep an eye out for anything suspicious and report to the Sheriff’s office immediately anything that doesn’t seem right (call 911). Also, watch for our future “Neighborhood Watch” updates.
