From Safety Committee:
Posted 11/20/19  Regarding Solicitors
Residents can take these steps to help protect them from solicitors:
  • If you don’t know the person, don’t open the door. Never feel obligated to greet an unfamiliar person knocking at your door.
  • Always keep doors and windows locked. Storm doors or security doors are helpful when dealing with solicitors, because you can see and speak safely through the door.
  • Never allow an unfamiliar person into your house.
  • Solicitors must have a business license and permit. Contact your local law enforcement agency if a solicitor is aggressively attempting to get into your home or refusing to show their license/permit.
  • Don’t expect all perpetrators of door to door sales scams to look the part. Some are clean and well dressed and use special psychological techniques to try to get into your home or get your money.
  • Always use extreme caution before providing any personal or financial information.
  • If you are not interested, close the door and lock it. You don’t owe the person an explanation.
  • Residents can put a “no solicitors” sign on their door to help keep solicitors away.
  • Always report suspicious activity to the appropriate law enforcement agency.
NOTICE effective 10/24/19: Two speed bumps were installed in the main parking lot in front of the mail box and south end of the Auditorium.  Take care and be aware of bike riders, golf carts and pedestrians when driving through the community.

Posted SV Journal October: Sunland Village experienced an abnormal amount of crime in the month of June. The Sunland Village H.O.A. contacted the Mesa PD liaison via email on June 27th. Mesa PD was aware of the situation. This contact was what prompted the email blast to website members on July 1st. We were not notified of any abnormal crime after July 1st. The General Manager met the police liaison on July 23rd. and was informed that there was no longer a substantial crime problem. The perpetrators had either moved on or were apprehended for other crimes. 
 
That being said, crime is likely to be a problem going forward. Most property crime stems from the drug epidemic which not likely to get better in the foreseeable future. Only relying on a resource limited police department or an unarmed courtesy patrol officer is not reasonable in today’s society. That is why it is extremely important for everyone to take personal responsibility for their own safety. Doors and gates need to be locked at all times and security systems including, lights, cameras, and alarms are highly recommended.  You may go to www.crimereports.com to view crime reports in Mesa.

NOTICE effective 9/12/19: The large parking lot at the main campus and the parking lot by the south pool will be closed from approximately 11 pm to 6 am daily.
