Maintaining a safe community has become harder than ever in our current day and age. In
addition to ensuring a neighborhood follows its communal bylaws, a Homeowners Association
is tasked with implementing security measures to protect its residents best. Due to the ever-
evolving nature of security, Neighborhood Watch signs alone are not going to cut it when it
comes to protecting a community. Because of this, Apex Security has come up with some
innovative ways HOAs can make neighborhoods more secure.
Neighbors can be a community's first line of defense. If a member of a community sees
suspicious behave encourage them to report it the HOA. With this information, the best course
of action can be taken to deal with a threat to security. An HOA can set up monthly meetings to
discuss events around the community. At these meetings, residents can ask trusted community
members to keep an eye out for any suspicious activity around their home while they are away.
Having all members of the community on alert is a great way to deter and catch criminals.
Build a Strong Relationship with Local Police
Having a strong relationship between the community and law enforcement can help keep a
neighborhood safe. When an HOA is in positive contact with law enforcement, it is easier to
report crimes and work to ensure the safety of its community's residents. The presence of
police in a neighborhood can be a great deterrent against crime.
Creating a Community Newsletter
An HOA can inform its residents of tips to ensure the safety of their homes through
newsletters. Newsletters are an excellent way to keep the community updated on recent
reports of problems in the area. If everyone in the community is informed on best safety
practices, it is easier to maintain a safe living environment for all residents.
The Property Security Assessment
Having a security firm create a property security assessment can be very helpful in securing a
community. An Apex Security professional can create a list of vulnerabilities on the property,
which can lead to security issues. The Apex professional can assist the HOA in finding solutions
to specific areas of weakness and give the association the tools to create a secure community.
The best way an HOA can protect its residents is by hiring a professional security team. Our
Apex security guards are professional, competent, and well equipped to keep a community
safe. 24/7 protection and the ability to call on a security expert for help is the most effective
way to maintain a safe environment in a community.
