Security Update 

By Tim Cook - 
Security Director

In a recent edition of On The Security Scene in our weekly Enews, you may have noticed a section at the bottom, if you made it that far, that summarizes warnings and citations issued each week. To dive a little deeper,  the chart at the end of this column shows some of the most frequent infractions and associated fines during 2023.

A total of 185 violations were issued to residents, guests, and vendors in 2023. The most expensive fine was $500 issued to a vendor with no safety cones. The vendor had received prior warnings and citations for the same infraction. The second most expensive fine was a $200 citation issued for having an unregistered golf cart. The resident had received prior warnings and citations for the same violation.

As previously mentioned on three occasions, the Guardian Pro LIDAR and camera system has been deployed throughout the community. Most recently, the system was deployed in Deer Creek on Shellwind Drive, and then it was moved to Yam Gandy Road. As with any Rules & Regulations violation, fines may be assessed in an effort to encourage compliance. Our current moving traffic violations are not consistent with other local municipalities. Therefore, the Security Committee is completing benchmark studies and will present a recommendation to the Board of Directors to update our fine structure to be more aligned with the benchmarking results. Our current fine structure can be found online ( or on pages 50 and 51 in the 2024 Landings Residential Directory. We are continuing to issue courtesy notices for speeding violations, but we have noticed quite a few repeat offenders.   

As part of the survey feedback for more enforcement and more police presence, we have asked Chief Hadley for his assistance in this endeavor. Please remember that Chatham County Police Department (CCPD) does have authority to issue State traffic citations in our community. Unlike citations for speeding issued by The Landings Security Department, citations issued by CCPD carry points and are linked directly to your driving record, which can negatively impact your insurance rates.

Slow down and enjoy the view.

Stay safe, and stay well,
