Since 1999, the association has operated a privately funded security patrol. This patrol, under the command of Police Sgt. Darren Ogden, provides daily patrols by off-duty Fort Lauderdale police officers. This includes patrol of our area streets and the beach area and a special program for residents who are away from their home for an extended period. The Security patrol is funded through homeowner contributions, and from the support our area commercial and condominium projects. The association asks that each resident contribute $400 each year, with $650 for Ocean Front residents.
