The LSA Security Detail

The LSA Security Detail was started in 1993 by Captain Ronnie Thompson of the Baton Rouge Police Department.  Captain Thompson  retired in 2003. I have asked the officers to randomly make house calls for a brief period each week to introduce themselves to the residents.

We have a fine group of dedicated officers and they are doing their very best to keep Lake Sherwood safe.

If  residents need to contact one of the officers, they should call the main number for the City Police and request the officer(s) return their call.

Vacation-Proof Your Home


Many of us look forward to this time of year, because it means getting away for a while to relax and have fun on vacation.  The last thing you want to worry about is whether your home is secure.  Give yourself some peace of mind – before leaving on your trip, review these tips:

Lock tools away so they cannot be used to break into your home

Look over your backyard, patio and other outdoor areas to be sure all toys, bikes, lawn equipment, and other valuables are stored

Have a neighbor collect newspaper, mail and packages during your absence

Be sure you account for and collect all keys – from sitters, domestic help, etc. - before leaving home

Make sure any vehicles left out of storage are locked and that all valuables are removed – including IDs, keys and garage door openers

Contact your security system company to let them know you will be away so they can make a note on your account and to test your system before leaving.

Special Medical Emergency Safety Alert

In an emergency, an EMS Ambulance driver could be hampered by the fact that very few of our residences have the front porch light on in the evening illuminating the address of the house.

This could be a life or death situation where minutes can matter in receiving assistance. Please be sure that your address is illuminated during the evening hours. It is a simple fix. Just install a fixture that goes on at dusk and off in the morning. If you do not want to install a new fixture, you can just get a screw in adapter to the present fixture that will accomplish the same thing.

The Baton Rouge Ordinance is quoted below:

      Section 13.7 Uniform Grid System; numbers required

     A. It is hereby made the duty of each and every property owner holder to number or have numbered with Arabic numbers not less than three (3) inches in height every residential, commercial, or industrial building belonging to him in accordance with the following provisions. The number to be assigned such main building is to be assigned by the Department of Public Works.
