Shield Security Service -- An Important Additional Layer of Protection for Manasota Key
Posted on Dec 12th, 2010

As most of you know, the Manasota Key Association contracts with Shield Security of Englewood to patrol our Key. A uniformed officer in a highly visible patrol car with a light bar patrols at random times, three to five hours per day, (depending on season) five days per week. His job is to recognize, record and report suspicious behavior. His patrols are recorded electronically at check points located on the Key in addition to providing daily patrol logs. This visible deterrent is especially important at this time in our stressed economy with crime on the rise. The Sheriffs Department is dealing with reduced manpower, therefore fewer officers are available to conduct routine patrols.
