Safety & Security

Spring Creek is a gated residential and golf course community. The gate is manned 24 hours a day providing access to residents and their guests as well as guests of the golf course and Tavern on the Green. 

Spring Creek security is provided by Securitas and is primarily responsible for traffic direction and access approval at the front entrance gate. They are also tasked with supporting emergency services (fire, police, EMT, etc.) within the Spring Creek gates, as well as promoting our community’s safety and security objectives. 



Gatehouse

If you are expecting guests to the neighborhood, please notify the Gatehouse in advance so that they can provide them with a Visitor Pass. This pass should be visible in the vehicle at all times. Extended passes are available to frequent guests.

Also, if you see something suspicious have a need for security, call the gatehouse security at (540) 832-0832.

Contact 911 for Police, Fire, or Rescue Emergencies.



Neighborhood Watch

Neighborhood Watch is a citizen’s involvement program in cooperation with their local law enforcement agency.  Neighborhood Watch provides its community with unlimited availability of their citizens to watch their neighborhoods for suspicious activities or crimes.   For emergencies, please call 911. For suspicious individuals in the neighborhood, contact Security at 540-832-0832.

Mission: The mission of the Spring Creek Neighborhood Watch Program is to facilitate and sustain an environment that is safe and secure for the residents of Spring Creek and their guests. This will be accomplished by the rapid and near real-time dissemination of information that will provide situational awareness and understanding specific to events and occurrences that may disrupt the safety and security of Spring Creek. When necessary, the Spring Creek Neighborhood Watch Committee can liaise with local law enforcement as well as first responders.

Vision: A neighborhood that is safe and secure, in which neighbors are responsive the needs of each other. The efforts of the residents are coordinated and synchronized with local law enforcement, first responders, social services, and the Spring Creek Security Guard Force. 

Philosophy: Through transparent communication and the decentralized dissemination of information the residents of spring creek will be able to respond and act, if necessary, to assist neighbors and or facilitate and support others, law enforcement, and first responders. 

Who Are Our Members: All residents are members of The Spring Creek Neighborhood Watch Program and are entitled to participate in the program, as well as information related to the safety and security of Spring Creek. Active participation in the program is completely voluntary. However, your involvement will help keep our community safe, secure, and will support the work of our security personnel at the front entrance gate. 

How Do We Disseminate Information: Under the old program information was disseminated through stove piped phone trees. If one person in that chain of dissemination was removed, then the information would stop. On August 1, 2021, the Spring Creek Neighborhood Watch Program Group on NextDoor was deactivated. All communications from the Neighborhood Watch Committee will be posted on TownSquare for all of Spring Creek. In addition, with the assistance of the Access Control/IT Committee the Neighborhood Watch Committee has selected two apps to assist with the near real-time dissemination of information in Spring Creek and Louisa County.

1. Naber is the social neighborhood watch app that alerts you in real-time about crime and suspicious activity and incidents around your neighborhood and near your current location. Regardless of your level of participation in the Neighborhood Watch Program you will be able to receive as well as disseminate information. It is the best way for you and your neighbors to stay in touch and prevent suspicious incidents from turning into patterns of crime in your local community. The Naber app is available on the Apple App Store and Google Play. 

2. Louisa County Shield: Louisa County SHIELD Partners receive emergency alerts, bulletins and newsletters about several different aspects/facets of society. On the application you will be asked to choose your primary interest and any secondary interests. Get alerted about emergencies and other important community news by signing up for our Citizen Alert System. This system enables us to provide you with critical information quickly in a variety of situations, such as severe weather, unexpected road closures, missing persons and evacuations of buildings or neighborhoods. You will receive time-sensitive messages wherever you specify, such as your home, mobile or business phones, email address, text messages and more. You pick where, you pick how. You can sign up at: https://www.louisacounty.com/2352/Shield

What the Neighborhood Watch is not: Members of the Neighborhood Watch Committee or program participants are not law enforcement officials, nor will they act on behalf of or assume roles associated with any law enforcement agency, such as the Louisa County Sheriff’s Department.

Lighting in Spring Creek

You may have noticed that we do not have street lights.  Spring Creek is designated as a “dark sky” community.  For safety, we ask that your post light be on at night.  Your post light provides lighting to help someone locate your home and to deter criminal activity, while still allowing you to enjoy our beautiful sky vistas.
