Tip of the Month
“If everyone has the gate code and can easily enter your community, then why have
a gate?” -Officer David Kohlmeier
Most communities' entrance gates have generic codes for their residents that
are seldom, if ever, changed. While every community is different, Officer
Kohlmeier with the Henderson Police Department’s Community Relations Office
recommends that these generic gate codes be removed from the system.
Every homeowner has a gate opener that allows them entry into the community.
Visitors can gain access by using the phone system connected to the callbox,
which can be connected to either a landline and or cellular phone.
By taking a moment to limit access to those who don’t belong in our
communities, we can stop unwanted visitors and ultimately help decrease
If you have any questions about this crime prevention tip or would like to
know how to implement it in your neighborhood, please contact Officer David
Kohlmeier at (702) 267-4495.
