Gail Williamson – Director
The most visible aspect of their job is to staff our gates, either in person or through the intercom system, to assist our owners and their guests in entering the property. Another arm of our Public Safety Team is the Patrol Unit. Both of these units are manned twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, fifty-two weeks a year. The Patrol Unit is on patrol around the clock, trying to keep an eye on all common areas as well as looking for anything that is suspicious or out of the ordinary.
Public Safety employees are often the first point of contact in an emergency and can relay information or contact emergency services such as the sheriff, fire department or ambulance services as needed. Public Safety is often an escort to these emergency departments as they respond to calls from our owners. Public Safety IS NOT a “police force” that is responsible for maintaining law and order or making arrest. They are here to assist owners as possible, patrol the grounds, responding to accidents, checking names on guest lists, directing traffic, controlling the flow of visitors through our gates and acting as escorts when necessary, through the property.
Public Safety also works closely with the local and state law enforcement agencies as well as the Department of Natural Resources and 911 when needed. While we hope that you will never need the assistance of our Patrol Team or rarely speak to the Gate Team, we want everyone to know that we are always here and ready to help whenever we can. There are also several other areas that Public Safety is responsible for or involved in and those are listed below. For more information, please click on the links below.
