As the temperatures reached offensive levels at the end of the summer, so did the rate of burglaries in the neighborhood. On August 17 and 18 three of our Timbergrove Manor neighbors reported break ins at their homes. In response, the TMCC Security Committee has adjusted the Private Security patrol schedule to focus on daytime hours when these incidents occurred in hopes of deterring similar crimes.
TMCC initially began Private Security patrols of the neighborhood following a rash of daytime burglaries in the community in 2015. As reflected in the crime statistic summaries below, efforts correlated with a decrease in these invasive and highly concerning crimes in 2016 and 2017. TMCC believes, in combination with the efforts of area Citizen Patrol volunteers, Private Security patrols, contracted through SEAL Security Solutions, are an important tool in deterring crime in the neighborhood. However, financial participation by neighbors necessary to continue our efforts is lagging behind prior years. While we’ve raised an additional $2,300 since our last newsletter publication date, we are still at only 65% of our annual fundraising goal.
