Deputy Chris McMurty, from the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office, gave a presentation to the Board and community regarding safety tips for Mirabay residents. In particular, he recommended that residents be proactive in regards to safety and security because, while a gated community may help deter criminals, it is not a guarantee that crime won’t occur. Among other tips, Deputy McMurty recommended that residents close their garage doors, lock and secure their cars, and lock all doors and windows at their homes. Additionally, Deputy McMurty encouraged residents to contact the police and/or file a police report for any criminal events and/or suspicious activity because doing so will help the police track any criminal activity in the area.
