We need to pull together. We have just learned of two additional robbery attempts in the Fryman/Dona area this week. One on Dona Dorotea, the other on Iredell. These in addition to at least 4 robberies or attempted robberies on Fryman Rd. in recent weeks that we are aware of makes the call for additional security ever more urgent. Attempts have occurred during the day, at night while occupants were away and while they were home--with pets, with alarms set, and without. None of us is safe.
We are interested in banding together with the Western Donas to install security cameras at each of the entrances to the neighborhood and possibly a gate house at the entrance to Fryman. Such actions would serve as a deterrent to strangers entering the neighborhood who might realize their photos and license plates are being recorded. In addition, they might think there is security in the neighborhood, on site, monitoring the cameras. We may decide to add security if it in fact makes sense to do so. In addition, the recorded tapes would assist police in apprehending suspects and recovering property.
We need help in getting bids for the cameras and guard house, as well as rallying the neighbors both here and in the Donas for ongoing support. Please let us know if you would be willing to assist with this process, if this is an idea you would support, and if you have any contacts that could help with this process.
