Powell: Sun City needs more patrols on streets

Posted

In your article (“Overnight security to patrol centers,” Sun City Independent, June 22, 2022) you wrote concerning overnight patrols at two of the rec centers.

I agree that there should be a patrol, whether that be paid uniform off-duty sheriff deputies or the Posse. I think the other rec centers need a patrol also, but that would depend on if there is any “activity.”

Like the idea of the comment insert.

Also, Having read your article (“Lock boxes give emergency access in Sun Cities,” Sun City Independent, June 29, 2022), I fully agree that lock boxes are a must. I was fortunate that when I moved to Sun City the previous condo owners had already installed a lock box.

The thing that needs to be decided upon is whether the box should be at the garage or front door. The fire department should establish this requirement. Emergency personnel normally arrive at the garage entrance when in a condo. That is where mine is located.

Great article.
