LET'S WORK TOGETHER TO PREVENT CRIME

The main goal of the Town of Gilbert Crime Prevention department is to provide programs and services offered through the Gilbert Police Department to better assist and educate citizens.  
A FRIENDLY REMINDER FROM THE GILBERT POLICE DEPARTMENT

Vehicle burglaries are a crime of opportunity. The vast majority of thefts occur from unlocked cars. While it is true there are the occasional “smash and grabs” where the vehicle windows are broken and property is removed by force, they are FAR less common. This is why it is so important to lock your cars all the time, every time and not leave valuables sitting in plain sight. The Spectrum Community Association has partnered with the Gilbert Police Department to bring you this important message and to offer a fun game to make it stick! Your Gilbert PD Crime Prevention officers will be doing random visits to Spectrum for the month of February, and if your vehicle is seen displaying a Gilbert PD mirror hanger you may receive a gift card for a free oil change at Christian Brother’s Automotive!

*Mirror hangers will also be available in the Association office.
NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH

This program, also known as USA On-Watch or Block Watch promotes citizen and police cooperation in reducing crime within a community. In Gilbert, communities who desire participation into this program are encouraged to assign a coordinator, contact a Crime Prevention Specialist and host an initial activation meeting with your own community.

If you are an existing block watch coordinator for Spectrum, or member of an existing block watch in our community please let us know so that we can connect interested neighbors with the existing groups.
COMMUNITY UPDATES
Bulk trash pick up is a service for items that are too large to fit in your trash container. All items collected are taken to the landfill.
FERAL CAT REMINDERS

Often times a homeowner may call our office to notify us of feral cats in their area, and will ask what the Association can do about them. Unfortunately, in the Town of Gilbert, cats are legally allowed to roam free. There is a tedious process to catch and turn in feral cats as follows:

  • Contact the Spay Neuter hotline to borrow a trap, and go pick it up.
  • Make an appointment for the cat to be spayed/neutered (there is some financial assistance available and you must apply. If no assistance available, a $25 donation is required.
  • Set the trap a day before the appointment.
  • Take the cat to be spayed/neutered.
  • Bring the cat back home for 24 hours of recovery.
  • Release the cat where it was trapped.
  • Return the borrowed trap. 
STORMWATER AWARENESS WEEK

This week has been designated in Phoenix and Maricopa County as Stormwater Awareness Week. Stormwater runoff is generated when rain and/or snowmelt flows over land and surfaces such as concrete driveways, sidewalks, streets, parking lots and rooftops, and does not percolate into the ground.This excess water typically ends up in a nearby lake, stream, or river. Maricopa County manages the Stormwater Quality Program, which is responsible for preventing pollution to the Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System.
