Public Housing Developments

Platt Security’s Community Policing work plan was developed in conjunction with the HUD (Housing Urban Development) and was used as a nationwide model. The plan consists of four major parts.

  • Prevention: Highly visible patrol in an attempt to prevent undesirable activity
  • Identification: Obtain information on persons and/or locations involved in this type of activity
  • Documentation: Information by personnel surveillance, video, and camera documentation
  • Elimination: Developing either a criminal or civil case to eliminate subject(s) from the property

This program is designed to prevent crime before it happens, we will patrol the property within the Housing Development. Undesirable activity can be as simple as an unauthorized resident to gang activity and narcotics trafficking or violent crimes. Our Officers will focus their patrol on areas that are prone to these types of activity.

Parking Enforcement

A parking program cannot be effective without an enforcement component. Platt Security has designed and implemented parking enforcement programs throughout Southern California. Keep in mind that the laws differ dramatically between private property and public property and present a totally different challenge. Private property parking rules may be set by the property owner and very few vehicle codes and/or city ordinances apply. On the other hand on public streets and public property the vehicle code and city ordinance are basically all that apply.
