See Something? Say Something!

April 22, 2024

While various POA staff members conduct inspections proactively every week, we cannot inspect the entire island every day or even every week. We appreciate our partnership with property owners in letting us know when they see issues or concerns within common areas and at the amenities as well as violations of the governing documents.

We ask that if you see something, please say something. Oftentimes when things are left unsaid for too long other problems can arise or it can make the situation harder to correct.

Is It A POA or City of Charleston Police Issue?

Examples of POA concerns include but are not limited to:

  • Damage or Vandalism at parks, playgrounds, graveyards, private amenities (DICA pools, boat landings, rental spaces)
  • Violations of Governing Documents – trash, upkeep of the property or home, boat/trailer in the driveway, signage, etc. (also pertains to the town)
  • Malfunction of equipment – sprinkler system leaking, water fountains not working, boat arm malfunction, etc.

The POA is happy to assist with any issues that residents have. However, oftentimes it is faster and more efficient to contact the City of Charleston Police Department directly for certain concerns. We have listed some examples below of frequent calls/concerns that are best responded to by the City of Charleston Police Department by calling their non-emergency line (843) 743-7200.

Examples of City of Charleston Police Concerns Include but are not limited to:

  • Questionable parking violations – cars parked on the wrong side of the street, facing the wrong way, blocking a driveway/mailbox, broken down vehicles, parking for an extended period of time, etc.
  • Solicitation
  • Suspicious situations
  • Pet owner responsibilities – pets off-leash, owner not picking up pet waste, excessive barking, etc.
  • Property damage/theft – consists of any personal property such as cars, mailboxes, homes, bikes, etc.
  • Noise – loud and unnecessary noises or amplified sounds after 11 PM and before 7 AM

If you are ever unsure if your situation warrants a call to the non-emergency police dispatcher, please feel free to call the POA office at (843) 971-9200 and we would be more than happy to help you.
