Within the past year my HOA switched to a security patrol company named ‘North Coast Patrol’ whose website advertises “high-profile Ford Crown Victorias” as patrol cars, i.e. they looked like police cars. I learned of the switch this spring when a guard named Fernando pulled into my garage immediately after me around 2 am one night and idled in our parking lot. When I asked him why he pulled into the garage he said it was part of his patrol. This company continues to my patrol our property but I notice they no longer pull into the garage. After that incident, around 2 am every night I heard what I thought was a loud pickup truck entering the driveway below my apt. and barreling up the hill. After a minute it would rapidly barrel back down the driveway, tires loudly flapping over the speed bump, stop at the exit, then rapidly accelerate and roar off. Just within the past 1-2 months I realized this was not a truck doing this, it was our security patrol. And the noise is obviously for the purpose of harassment. Our former security company was called ‘Rancho Santa Fe’ security and was entirely professional, competent, and quiet. I wonder why we switched? The entire complex has a U-shaped driveway that runs through it, it makes no sense for a patrol to drive halfway through it and turn around rather than loop through the whole thing and exit on the other side.
