Security

DSRC Entryway (4)
The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (Metro) has a section devoted to helping homeowners' associations like DSRC.  Among the services provided are:

  1. Helping homeowners be aware of crime trends in their area,
  2. Providing useful tips for how to protect homes and property, and
  3. Meeting with Neighborhood Watch groups or accepting information from them.

This portion of the website lists articles and materials of interest produced by Metro and others that relate to community security.  More items are added regularly, so please check here often. 

Articles are listed with the most recent information first.  All are PDF files that may be opened in a separate tab or window of your browser or downloaded to your PC.

Note: To view the file in a new browser tab or window, just click the link.  You may then use the usual "Save" feature of Adobe to save the file.  If you would rather just save the file from the beginning, right-click the link and choose the appropriate action, such as "Save Target As..." in Internet Explorer.

Note 2:  Sometimes, Metro will issue several attachments relating to the same subject.  When that occurs, they are included in this website in separate articles with links below:
