Starting in November, families in Timbergrove Manor start to get especially busy. Residents are coordinating family vacations, shopping for holiday presents – and criminals are watching our every move.
But this year, TMCC residents will have extra protection thanks to additional neighborhood security monitoring by SEAL Security supplementing the dedicated patrollers of Citizen Patrol beginning in mid-November and continuing into January.
In addition to having SEAL Security patrol, which has helped nearby Oak Forest and Garden Oaks subdivisions significantly reduce and deter crime, a resident — or their neighbors or alarm company — can call SEAL’s 24-hour dispatch number to get response times as fast as 2 minutes or less.
SEAL Security will be contracted to provide 40 hours per week of patrolling coverage, primarily during weekdays but will rotate and randomize the schedule based on crime statistics and trends and to keep criminals on their toes.
While the TMCC Board of Directors is dedicated to helping with funding of additional security patrols this security can’t be done without your donations!
Donating members receive additional security benefits, such as:
While you’re out of town, SEAL Security officers will check on your home multiple times per day including checking the house perimeter with a K9 officer.
Priority Alarm Response
Add SEAL Security to your alarm monitoring service and benefit from response times starting at less than two minutes
Deter package theft when SEAL Security Officers are watching for orders being delivered to your porch and relocating parcels to more discrete locations.
Home Security Review
SEAL Security Officers will inspect your home to decrease vulnerabilities. Check with your insurance agent to see if this can save on your annual rates!
