Crime Reduction Tip: Help Reduce Incidents of Theft from Vehicles

The FSA has received messages from several neighbors around the hamlet reporting their cars have been vandalized or have had items stolen from their cars. The Suffolk County Police 4th Precinct released this recent advisory about reducing incidents of theft from vehicles:

  • Always lock your doors, even when parked in your driveway.
  • Remove valuables from the vehicle, especially what is easily visible. This includes all removable electronics, purses, wallets, loose change and packages of any kind. If you must keep these items in your car, please place in a locked glove box or the trunk.
  • Park in a well-lit area whenever possible.
  • When fueling your vehicle be sure to lock your doors and only take with you your keys and your form of payment. Remember leaving your purse or wallet in open view on the seat next you while you are distracted and the vehicle is unlocked is an easy grab for a thief.

The President’s Message — Winter 2016

Dear Neighbor,

Our Board wishes you a happy and healthy 2016. I am writing this to you after what I call the big dig. Forecasters named our recent blizzard “Jonas.” The press referred to the storm as Snowzilla. We had a nice run up until this storm. It was great to see neighbors helping each other out all over the hamlet as we cleared our driveways and walkways. Thanks, also, to the towns of Huntington and Smithtown for making our roads passable and safe.

If you are not already aware we are starting off this year with a challenging issue before us. The Indian Hills Country Club has been purchased by the Northwind Group. They are proposing a change of zoning as part of a plan to preserve the golf course. The new property owner offered our association an opportunity to view this plan. Several residents concerned about activity at the club also contacted us. And we were approached by other local civic associations in our community: the Indian Hills Association and the Claymore Association. Read More
