Canyon Lake POA Board approves $2.9M for one year of Community Patrol services

The Canyon Lake POA Board of Directors approved funding on Tuesday for a new Community Patrol services contract.

The board greenlit a comprehensive three-year contract with Allied Universal, the current contracting company, allocating $2,989,073 for the first year’s costs. The cost of the three-year contract amounts to $9,255,032.

“Residents can expect an increase in patrols and enforcement,” POA President Bil Van Vleet said.

In a review of the upcoming term for the current Community Patrol contract, the POA Board requested that the Security Advisory Committee develop a recommendation list of potential candidates to bid on the RFP for Community Patrol services. The Committee provided the board with a list of potential candidates based on various criteria they evaluated. The criteria included company training, patrol enforcement, gate access control, staffing, experience, and performance.

On December 26, 2023, the POA issued a notice inviting bidders to fourteen vendors. Ten of the invited bidders responded. After the initial review of the submitted proposals, the POA president, general manager, and staff completed the scoring matrix developed by the Security Advisory Committee to determine the top three candidates. Response questions and a request for the best and final proposal of costs were submitted to these candidates. The best and final offers were received on February 22.

The primary function of Community Patrol is to provide the community with services that include access control at the entry gates, Rules and Regulations compliance, and incident observation and reporting to the POA. These services do not replace the services of outside public safety agencies such as law enforcement, fire services, medical services, and city code enforcement.
