On the Security Scene
ISN of Florida offered the Security Department a loaner Traffic Hawk speed and stop sign violation detection device. The device was deployed at the intersection of Landings Way North & Bartram Road to capture stop sign violations, and on Waterside Road for speed limit violations. Two stop sign violations were observed, and two vehicles were captured exceeding 34 MPH in the 30 MPH zone on Waterside Road. The registered owners of these vehicles were mailed letters reminding them of posted speed limits and urging them to follow all rules of the road. As with any TLA Rule & Regulation, non-compliance can result in fines and suspension of membership privileges.
Our streets are private; therefore, the use of such devices as the Traffic Hawk is authorized to enforce our posted speed limits (30 MPH unless otherwise posted) by TLA. Chatham County Police also has concurrent jurisdiction to enforce the Uniform Rules of the Road pursuant to O.C.G.A. § 40-6-3 (5) within our community.
On Wednesday, July 1, Landings Security and Chatham Emergency Services (CES) responded to the intersection of Franklin Creek Road South and Activity Drive for a gas leak.

Landings Security responded to Delegal Marina on Saturday, July 4, for a report of theft. Upon arrival, the officer learned that a 50-amp power cord valued at approximately $150, which belonged to a resident boat owner, had been stolen by a transient boat owner earlier in the day. The incident was captured by the Avigilon camera system. The resident did not want to file a police report at the time as he wanted to give the perpetrator an opportunity to return the cord. The Marinas Director made contact with the transient boat owner who stated that he borrowed the cord and would mail it back.

Her mailbox was the only one damaged, and there were no additional reports throughout the weekend.
