Crime Prevention Workshop
The Crime prevention Workshop was held Wednesday, March 16, 2022 at the Association Clubhouse. Approximately 40 members were in attendance. The meeting was led by Alyssa Rabas, Laguna Hills Crime Prevention Specialist. In addition, two OC Sheriff Deputies assigned to Laguna Hills were in attendance for a Q&A session with residents. The below link is a Crime Prevention handout provided at the meeting. Alyssa and the two attending sherrif’s stressed the following:
Anyone who see suspicious activity should immediately call Sheriff dispatch. Be prepared to provide a detailed description of why the activity is suspicious. To the extent possible provide the make, model and color of any vehicle involved. If the report is regarding a person or persons provide a description including height, build, identifying features, color and clothes.
Residents of Laguna Hills have the ability to better track public safety issues in their neighborhoods with the OCSD software program, CrimeMapping, which allows anyone to monitor and analyze criminal activity. More specifically, CrimeMapping allows residents to search for 15 types of crime by address, landmark, or zip code. In addition, residents can also sign up for custom-designed alerts, as well as create reports to easily analyze criminal activity near homes, schools, or businesses. The crime data reported on the mobile-friendly application is pulled directly from crimes reported to the Orange County Sheriff’s Department and is updated every 24 hours. Although the data is preliminary, the CrimeMapping program provides the public with important and timely information, which will increase awareness of criminal activity and promote safer communities.
Laguna Hills residents can sign up for CrimeMapping alerts through the Orange County Sheriff’s Department website at www.ocsd.org/crimemapping
Solicitation for Board Candidates
The Association is soliciting candidates for the upcoming 2022 Board of Directors election to be held on Wednesday, June 1, 2022. Candidate applications must be received by the Association by March 24, 2022 to be nominated and listed on the pre-ballot notice that will be posted prior to April 1, 2022. The pre-ballot notice will include all names that will be included on the ballot to be mailed by April 30, 2022. Candidates whose nominations are received after March 24, 2022 may still run for election but will not be included on the ballot.
1. Subject to Civil Code §5105, all Candidates for the Board must meet the following qualifications:
a. The Candidate must be an Owner. If title to a separate interest is held by a legal entity, such entity may appoint a natural person to serve or vote on such entity’s behalf by delivering evidence of an appropriate written appointment to the Association;
b. The Candidate must be current in the payment of all regular and special assessments. For the purposes of these election rules, “current” means no regular or special assessment is past due by more than thirty (30) days, or such period of time as is specifically defined in the Association’s collection policy;
c. The Candidate may not hold a joint ownership interest in the same separate interest as any other candidate or incumbent director; and

The attached Election Rules were adopted by the Board effective March 15, 2022.
