PROTECTING OUR COMMUNITY
NEW CRIME-DETERRENT FORENSIC PROGRAM IN METRO WEST!
IMPORTANT ALERT FROM ORLANDO POLICE
WHAT YOU CAN DO
Much of Orlando, including our neighborhood, saw some major spikes in crime a few
years ago. Extra police presence in our neighborhood was added recently, and things
have quieted down. But the need for extra viligance still cannot be over-emphasized.
Metrowest is truly a beautiful community, and we have been remarkably
safe over the years. A number of FC residents have stepped up and thwarted more
than one attempted break-in, or car theft. We all need to step up and help. Here
are some important
Crime Prevention Tips
that you should be aware of. And be sure to read the
FAIRWAY COVE SECURITY CHANGE
Fairway Cove Security Change — starting September 14,
the Orlando Police Dept. will be providing off-duty security
within Fairway Cove. OPD was selected over many others to replace
the previous security company. OPD's hours will vary, but you will
see them in the neighborhood a lot. They will also have thea uthority
to enforce speed, trespassing and parking violations.
Please step out and say hello, and get to know the officers. A bottle
of cold water offered to them would be nice as well. As always, if
you have an emergency or see something suspicious, dial 911.
NEW METROWEST CRIME-DETERRENT
In recent weeks, you may have noticed Orlando police in the Community Services division
in our community, speaking with residents and handing out literature. This is about a
new crime-deterrent initiative that is quite remarkable. Here's an overview:
The MetroWest Master Association, Critical Intervention Services and the Orlando Police
Department are partnering to roll out a crime deterrent, apprehension and property recovery
tool within MetroWest. This deterrent utilizes a clear, odorless liquid, distributed
by Smartwater CSI, a Fort Lauderdale company. You apply it to
items of value, and it causes no damage to the items themselves. This liquid can mark over
60 items, which can later be detected and traced back to the owner using a two-pronged
detection method including microdots and DNA from over 24 precious metals that are specific
to the product vial purchased.
MetroWest Public Safety Officers will be entering Fairway Cove in the coming days to provide you additional information on this effective tool we are introducing to all
communities in MetroWest.
Kits are generally around $40 to $50 and can be purchased by visiting www.metrowestcommunity.com and clicking the "Smartwater CSI" logo.
Protecting our community requires ALL residents to get involved and participate.
Please help us protect you and your neighbors by participating in this program, which
has been endorsed by your board and/or property management.
We look forward to connecting with you!!
MetroWest Public Safety Department
WHAT YOU CAN DO TO HELP MAKE FC SAFER!
We residents of Fairway Cove are not going to tolerate crime in our community. We
are beefing up our neighborhood watch program, appointing block captains, meeting
more regularly to discuss more protective measures, and joining together as a community
to watch out for each other. WE ENCOURAGE ALL RESIDENTS OF FAIRWAY COVE TO JOIN
IN THIS EFFORT!
In the meantime, more and more residents want their concerns to be heard. Now you
can do something about this!
Email Buddy Dyer, the mayor of Orlando, and tell him you've had enough of
the crime problem in Metrowest getting out of hand, because of TOO FEW POLICE OFFICERS!
SAY NO TO SOLICITORS
Over the years, there have been a number of incidents where people not living in
Fairway Cove have gone door to door, soliciting to our residents, which is illegal
(and posted as such, near our community entrance). In some cases, they were trying
to get residents to sign up for magazine subscriptions and take personal checks
from them. Oftentimes, their motives are not honest. Please be careful in dealing
with solicitors. The best policy is to politely say "NO THANKS", and if necessary,
remind them that soliciting in Fairway Cove is not allowed.
EVENTS AND MEETINGS
Neighborhood watch Program
The Fairway Cove HOA Board of Directors is looking for volunteers to re-energize
our neighborhood Watch Program. If you are interested in helping your neighborhood
by participating in our efforts to get this rolling, please contact our board here.
Volunteers are also needed to from a Newsletter Committee. Your Board of Directors
has taken an action to improve communication within our neighborhood. In the past
we had a newsletter that was very informative and proved to be a very effective
means of communication. If you would like to participate in this committee please
contact the board here.
We have also had a Welcome Committee that was responsible for welcoming new homeowners
to Fairway Cove. This activity has fallen by the wayside and volunteers are needed
for this committee as well. Please contact the board
Each of the above is an effort to improve the sense of community that has been lost
in Fairway Cove over the past few years. Your Board, while they do invest a great
deal of personal time, cannot do it alone. They need your help and input. Please
give them a hand to reinvigorate our community spirit.
