Historic Security Patrol

In 2006 the ONEN Board decided to contract with a local security company to provide our neighborhood with additional security patrols to address an apparent increase in burglaries. In 2021 we continue to contract for this service that the Board has determined is an investment worth the ongoing expense to protect our homes and property.

Security Patrols are provided by Raven Security Company:

  • Patrol coverage hours – Security patrols take place in the evenings only between 9:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m. from marked patrol vehicles. Officers are uniformed, armed, licensed and specially-trained in security operations. Patrol inspections are performed randomly to avoid setting any type of pattern in our security coverage. 
  • Nightly out-of-town checks and alarm response services – arrangements may be made directly with Raven Security for these additional services to ensure the security of your home.
  • Homeowners are encouraged to be watchful during the day and report suspicious activity to authorities.

Peak Alerts Emergency Notification System –  The El Paso-Teller County Emergency Notification System is used to alert you of emergency situations that are a threat to life or property, or situations that are deemed dangerous by public safety officials. This may include, but is certainly not limited to, man-made disasters, hazardous materials incidents, missing persons, crime, or neighborhood/business evacuation notifications. You will receive time-sensitive messages wherever you specify – home, mobile or business phones, email address, text messages, etc.

It is important to note that during an emergency you should use as many forms of communication as possible to stay informed. Stay tuned to news broadcasts, radio stations, social media websites, weather radios, etc. Do not put your safety at risk waiting for a phone call/notification to be told what to do. If at any time you feel that you are in danger you should take whatever action you feel is necessary to get yourself to safety. It is recommended that you register as an individual rather than as a household as notifications will stop once a user confirms receipt of the message.

Security Tips and Other Resources

 Going on Vacation?

  • Arrange with Raven Security for out-of-town daily security checks.
  • Ask a neighbor you trust to keep an eye on your home, pick up any unexpected packages, and watch for suspicious activity.
  • Leave some lights on inside and outside (or better yet put them on timers)
  • Have the USPS hold your mail. Schedule online: https://holdmail.usps.com/holdmail/
  • Put your paper on vacation hold.
  • Arrange for your sidewalk to be shoveled or grass to be mowed while you are gone to make it harder for people to notice you are gone. Also make sure someone takes in your trash cans if you put them out before you leave.
