Patrolling a Picturesque Plantation Community

Gated Community Security | Sun City

Challenge:

Controlling access to and securing a gated community with over 15,000 residents and more than 400 visitors and contractors arriving daily.   

Securitas USA provides contract security services for Del Webb’s Sun City; a plantation community in Beaufort County, South Carolina. The 38-officer team performs many law enforcement duties while patrolling the community’s 100 miles of private roads.

Solution:

  • Experienced Officers: Key staff members are retired from police and sheriff’s departments, state police, and the FBI. 
  • Empowered Officers: As they have the same arrest authority as police, officers receive South Carolina Law Enforcement Division training and are Red Cross certified in CPR, first aid and AED.

Result:

The experience and empowerment of the officers has enabled them to handle a wide variety of incidents that arise and reserve calling the South Carolina Highway Patrol, Beaufort County Sheriffs’ Department or EMTs when the situation warranted. “It’s an excellent security team that appropriately and tactfully handles all types of issues,” says Corenza Vaughn, Sun City’s Director of Community Standards. 

 

[Securitas] goes ‘above and beyond’ to help safeguard our community, and has even saved several residents’ lives.
