The Pelican Point Digest Fall 2017
New Security Company at Pelican Point
Starting on October 16, you will see some new faces at the front entrance guard shack. Champion National Security will be providing our guard services. The guards will be checking that all residents have a Pelican Point decal on their vehicle. Visit the office or ask the guard next time you drive by. For address verification, you will be asked to show the guard your driver's license. An additional security camera will be placed at the guard shack to monitor vehicles leaving Pelican Point. The cameras take pictures of license plates.
