The Association is aware that there have been a rash of vehicle burglaries and property vandalism this week, especially over the July 4th holiday. The Association takes these matters very seriously and is currently investigating these incidences. If you have any information regarding these incidences, you may call the Community Safety Director Mark Galvin at 760-345-4349 ext. 2202, or the Indio Police Department at 760-391-4051. In the case of an emergency call 911. Please remember not to leave your keys in your vehicles or your vehicles unlocked. Moreover, please do not leave your garage doors open unattended. Do not approach or attempt to stop anyone who is acting suspiciously. If you see any suspicious behavior or persons in the community, immediately call the Indio Police Department at 911 and then the Association’s patrol services at the Jefferson gate at 760-345-4458.
We have made adjustments to the patrols to provide extra coverage in the areas that have already been hit. We have also spoken to Ben Quitron at IPD and he has confirmed that their night time beat officers have been instructed to increase exterior patrols along Jefferson, Varner, Monroe Etc. and their personnel have been instructed to look for anyone in the area for the next 10 days.
We will be in touch with more information next week as we find out more after the investigation.
