We have successfully completed the four-week test with secondary-duty police officers patrolling our neighborhood at night and responding to alerts from the AwareNet cameras.
Directly as a result of reviewing alerts, the officers made two arrests and responded to several suspicious incidents.
Based on the results, the SLHNA Board voted to continue to the next step of the project – collecting donations to pay the ongoing cost of the security officers (approximately $13,500 per month). The request is for every household to donate at least $180 lump sum (or at least $15 per month) to help pay for 12 months of security officer service.
Security Officer Success
Early Tuesday, Nov 29th, the security officer on duty for our neighborhood, reviewed AwareNet alerts that showed a person going block-to-block south of Francis Park, checking for unlocked vehicles. The officer located the suspect and made an arrest. Regular duty District 2 patrol officers, who responded to assist, transported the suspect to the police station for booking.
We’ve just started the third week of the four week test with a security officer. There were no criminal incidents identified during the first two weeks while officers have been reviewing alerts and patrolling the neighborhood.
Please contact the Chairperson of the SLHNA Safety Committee, Tom Scheifler, if you have any questions or concerns (email@example.com).
On Monday, November 14th, a major milestone was achieved for the SLHNA project to disrupt and deter crime in our neighborhood. We started the four week test/trial with a security officer reviewing and responding to the automatic alerts sent from the 100+ cameras purchased by neighborhood residents over the last eight months.
The private-duty police officers are provided by Campbell Security and will be driving a vehicle with a light bar and “security” markings. The officers have been encouraged to say hello to the folks out and about in our neighborhood after 10pm so wave or say hi if you see them. Security officers are in uniform, have their police radio, and carry their department issued weapons for protection. Although they are able to make arrests while working private-duty, their primary goal for the neighborhood is to safely disrupt and deter criminal activity.
The test is scheduled to run through Sunday, December 11th. Results of the four week test will be shared for public review and discussion.
The history of the project is available at https://stlhills.com/safety/AwareNetProjectStatusAndHistory.pdf. Please contact the Chairperson of the SLHNA Safety Committee, Tom Scheifler, if you have any questions or concerns (firstname.lastname@example.org).
