News from Your BOD
Thank you to everyone who attended our February Board meeting! We had another full house for what turned out to be a very full agenda. The guest speakers were the main draw. We had an excellent presentation by OPCC resident, Richard Elkins who is the Director of Patrol for the Clay County Sheriff’s Department. He was accompanied by Assistant Chief, Steve Barreira who is in charge of the Community Affairs Division. They covered a wide range of topics including the philosophy and priorities of the new sheriff, Darryl Daniels, efforts to hire more deputies and to obtain funds and grants from the federal government, the possibility of placing bicycle patrols at the mall and more. They reported that the Sheriff’s Department is committed to enhancing communication with the community through “Coffee with a Cop” events, Sheriff’s Net and Citizens Academy. Chief Elkins reminded us that if we see suspicious people/activities, do not call the gate: call the Sheriff’s Office directly at 264-6512 or 284-7575. If you see an actual crime, call 911.
