Security

Door Security:

The complex is patrolled by security, seven days a week.  For security and safety the outer building doors are locked between the hours of 10:00pm and 7:00am  If you are expecting visitors and/or food deliveries after 10:00pm it will be necessary for you to wait in the lobby in order to let them into the building.  Remember, locks are only as effective as those who use them.

Building access for visitors is controlled by a coded number on the entrance board.  The system is interactive with your telephone.  If visitors call, and your wish them to enter, you press “9” on your telephone.  This will release the electronic lock.

DO NOT...

  • OPEN THE DOORS THROUGH YOUR INTERCOM WHEN YOU DO NOT KNOW WHO IS RINGING FOR ENTRY. 
  • LET A STRANGER INTO THE BUILDING WHEN YOU ARE ENTERING OR LEAVING.
  • PROP LOBBY AND/OR MAIN DOORS OPEN AT ANY TIME OR WHEN USING THE LOADING DOCK.

PARKING GARAGE SECURITY:
IT IS IMPORTANT THAT WE LEAVE NOTHING OF VALUE IN OUR VEHICLES.
  

From time to time, Hillside Estates garage has been a target for minor thieves.  These individuals will enter the parking garage by following a resident into the garage.  Once in the garage, they will break into vehicles and make off with whatever is in them.
If you leave a couple of dollars in loose change, CD’s, sunglasses, a cigarette lighter or other items on your vehicle console, you will be a target for these petty thieves.  What we must realize is that this is what they are after.  They also end up doing hundreds of dollars worth of damage to vehicles when entering them.

WHAT SHOULD WE DO?

  • Leave nothing in your vehicle
  • Call police (780-423-4567) if you see someone suspicious in the garage.
  • Be aware of who enters the garage behind you.

PREVENTING THEFT:

Security cameras have shown the majority of criminal activities that occur on our property have been committed by individuals that residents have let in.
