I V. C ommunit y Patrol and L imited A ccess Community Patrol and Limited Access Bonita Bay is a gated community with limited access. Our community is unique in that all of the roadways within Bonita Bay are privately owned. This status allows us to maintain an access program at each of our entry gates. Bonita Bay Community Association (BBCA) through its Community Patrol Department is responsible for providing controlled access and traffic safety services for the community. Roadways within Bonita Bay are patrolled 24 hours a day, 365 days per year by Community Patrol Officers. The Community Patrol Department also provides access control for the Beach Park during seasonal months. The primary responsibilities of our Community Patrol Department are to control access to the community, establish a visible presence on the property, provide information and aid to residents, employees and guests, and to report any unlawful activity to the proper authorities. Although we wish to help out in any way possible, our personnel are not police officers, firefighters or medica l professionals, they do not have arrest powers, nor do they carry weapons of any type. Therefore in an emergency, we suggest you call 911, prior to contacting our patrol staff. 30 w w w. B o n i t a B a y Re s i d e nt s .c o m
