I have posted two articles in the past regarding how to act at the pool and how to respond to inappropriate behavior. You can read them here: Pool etiquette and Pool safety and security.
In the past week there have been two incidents witnessed at the pool that were not reported until it was too late to confront the violators.
Both incidents involved people climbing over the fence to gain entry, then letting others in. The first incident also involved sitting on the pump room roof after drinking Rainer beer (so 4 violations total).
I am posting security photos of the suspects. Let me know if you know them. (I apologize for the quality of the images. I will replace them with higher resolution images when I can.)
For minor violations, I would suggest talking to those involved. If you are uncomfortable doing this, report it to AMS as soon as possible with as many details as possible. If they are a resident and used their FOB to gain entry, the Association can figure out who they are and have a discussion with them.
If they did not use a FOB to gain entry and are violating other rules (like sitting on the roof) assume they are trespassing until you know otherwise.
If it is criminal behavior, including trespassing, call the Washington County Dispatch non-emergency line 503-629-0111. If it is life threatening, call 911.
This advice applies to other suspicious behaviors in our community, such as people looking in vehicles or on porches, drug use late at night in the common areas, people following delivery vehicles, etc.
Look out for your neighbors and their property by saying something when you see something.

This is on the agenda for the next Board Meeting. The pool is usually open until the weather turns cold and rainy. This can occur from mid September to early October.
