Utopia Security Update

Miami Police Department Crime Reporting Map

Hello Members,

This message is both a reminder and a thank you.  As you see from the crime map (Miami City Police website – dated 4/1/22 -8/29/22) our Utopia Security neighborhood, bounded on the north by Poinciana and on the south by Bonita Ave, shows very little criminal activity, especially when compared to the surrounding neighborhoods.  

First a reminder, please keep your car doors locked and remove any valuables (including key fobs). Second, a big thank you for your support. Your membership dues keep Utopia Police Patrols running in our neighborhood, and that thwarts criminal activity.  With an active Police Patrol and proactive security awareness by all members, we will continue to enjoy living in one of Miami’s safest neighborhoods.

Stay safe,
Your Utopia Homeowners Security Association

A Utopia Homeowners Security Reminder

 

 

Day or night, unlocked cars are easy targets.  Our patrol officers offer this simple but very effective remedy –   keep your car doors locked and all valuables removed.     There have been either car break-ins or car thefts around the area (Gables, South Grove) so do not make it easy for these opportunistic thieves.  The simple act of securing your car goes a long way to making our area an undesirable target.

To vote, simply reply to that email. We are grateful for everyone’s attention and participation.
