Please help keep River Crossing crime-free

Some time over the past few days, we had vandals damage our fishing dock at the Colorado River, located on RCIA common property.  If you go to examine the area, note that there’s a lot of broken wood and exposed screws & nails, so please be careful.  A vandalism report has been filed with the Bastrop County Sheriff’s Office.  If you notice any suspicious activity in that area, please contact the Bastrop Sheriff’s Office non-emergency number (512-303-1080) and reference case# 15-5-001029.

I had the good fortune to meet with Deputy Ann Calderon, an 11 year veteran of the Sheriff’s Deputy service, this afternoon when she visited to record our vandalism report.  She works our area and encouraged me to let you all know that the Sheriff’s Office is interested in keeping ahead of this type of local criminal activity.  Please do call when you see something you know is out of the ordinary, and also report any occurrences that happen on or around your properties.  This includes cars parked on roadways that you know do not belong to the residents of that area, whether during the day or at night.

If you have exterior lights, or motion sensor lights, at your property, consider keeping them on regularly if you normally do not.  Brightly-lit properties discourage criminal activity.  Please keep aware of your area of the neighborhood, and get to know your neighbors!  That will help you to know what’s to be expected, and to recognize when something is not as it is supposed to be.

The RCIA Board of Directors will be considering measures to help avoid these incidents in the future, and welcomes input from the community.
