SECURITY PATROL - Eyes and Ears of the Community

Why Do Security Patrol Drivers Wave to Everyone?

Judy Hunt, Security Patrol Chief

As they drive along every street in the community, Sun City Summerlin Security Patrol Drivers wave to everyone they pass. “It’s a neighborly gesture and it lets residents know we are watching out for them,” said Patrol Chief Judy Hunt. “And we appreciate when residents wave back to acknowledge to us that they are OK.”
   Patrol drivers always take special interest in a car or truck parked in a driveway if someone is sitting in the vehicle. Experience has taught them that a burglar usually backs into a driveway and parks facing the street so that it is easier for him to drive off in a hurry. Residents almost always park facing the house and workers usually park in the street, not in the driveway. If it is a bad guy, a simple wave might be all it takes to change his mind about committing a crime. He will know the Patrol Driver saw him and can describe him, as well as his vehicle. And the driver may have written down his car’s license number. “Assuming, however, that you’re not up to any misbehavior and you have a question or a concern, never hesitate to signal a Patrol driver to stop,” said Chief Hunt. If the driver doesn’t have the information you need, he or she will ask the Patrol dispatcher, who has a wealth of reference material in their computer files. “There are no trivial concerns,” added Judy. “We’re your neighbors who are committed to trying our best to help keep you safe.”
