As we move into the busy season at the beach, the Board wants to remind all community members that they need to be proactive in protecting their property and personal safety. At one time, many houses did not have locks. The Eastern Shore was considered immune from the crimes that occurred in the cities. Many residents still leave windows opened and doors unlocked. Last year, in 2017, several property owners had their unoccupied houses broken into and unlocked cars burglarized.
We recommend that all community members exercise extreme caution when interacting with any unknown individual(s), and we advise all community members to never grant access to their house to any stranger for any reason. If a stranger ever makes you feel uncomfortable or attempts to enter your property, we urge you to call 911.
We also advise that all members keep their automobiles and houses locked, especially at night.
