Virginia Lee Properties management goes the extra step to insure their tenants are kept as safe as possible by contracting with Capital Investigations which provides (among other things) armed security patrols for most of Virginia Lee's properties in the Fan area. The security patrol officers have full arrest authority as decribed in the state code of Virginia and is also on-call to the tenants during nightly patrol hours. Most of what the patrol does is check for trespassers, report on burned out building lights inside & out, report excess amount of trash accumilation inside and outside of building. Just the visible presents of a patrol car and a security officer actively checking the buildings is a deterrent to many a would-be criminal, it also gives the tenants (and the parents of its college age kids living their peace-of-mind) an extra level of security and increases the quality of living to one degree or another. When choosing an apartment community to move into in Richmond's Fan area (where anything can happen at anytime both good & bad) a building that has an active security patrol could very well be the deal breaker and ups the anty for those apartment communities who don't have it.
Pros: SECURITY PATROL, LOCATION, LOCATION ,LOCATION, DEDICATED STAFF, WONDERFUL OWNER
Cons: THEY DON'T OWN ALL THE APARTMENTS IN THE FAN
