Physical Altercation

On June 29, Landings Security, Chatham Emergency Services (CES), and Chatham County Police Department (CCPD) responded to a physical altercation on Shellwind Drive between two vendors from the same company. Although physical injuries were reported, both men were medically cleared by CES. The men were placed in custody and transported to the County jail by CCPD. No residents were involved, and the incident was quickly contained and neutralized.


Residents are reminded to perform their due diligence when hiring vendors and subcontractors. One of the suspects involved in this incident had outstanding warrants.

Radar Numbers Missing

On July 2, Landings Security discovered the numbers 1 and 8 were missing from the mobile radar trailer adjacent to the community path along Landings Way North. We ask anyone who knows where the numbers are to please return them.


On June 30, Landings Security responded to a report of a door-to-door solicitation. An extensive search of the community ensued, and the perpetrator was located and identified. The person in question was a sponsored guest of a resident. He assumed that solicitation for missionary work was allowed. After the rule regarding solicitation was clarified for him, the person departed without incident. A message was left for the sponsoring resident regarding the incident with their guest.

Vendor Access

On June 28, Landings Security responded to a suspicious persons report when two males were dropped off at the Moon River Gate and entered the property on foot. Contact was made with two males who were later identified and verified as workers for an authorized remodeling company. The company’s manager was contacted, and proper access protocols were explained to him and the workers.

Suspicious Vehicle

On June 28, Landings Security responded to Yam Gandy Road in search of an older model, red pickup truck whose driver was reported as taking pictures of homes. Two Patrol Officers performed a thorough search of the area but were unable to locate a vehicle matching the description. No other reports were received.

July 4th Celebration

The Landings Golf & Athletic Club’s July 4th Celebration was a huge success. The Landings Association pays for a portion of the fireworks for this event each year. All lost kids were reunited with their families, and no injuries or vehicle crashes were reported. We truly appreciate everyone’s compliance with parking signs, being patient, and exercising common courtesy during this event. A special thanks to CCPD Officers who worked the event along with Chatham Emergency Services (CES) staff.
