DUCK KEY SECURITY DISTRICT

With the establishment of the Property Owners' Association in the 1970s, members began paying for island security patrols.

In 1991 the residents of Duck Key proposed the establishment of a Safe Neighborhood Improvement District or Security District for Duck Key. The Monroe County Board of County Commisssioners established a Special Taxing District - 2/6/92 Ordinance 005-1992 amended by Ordinance 012-1994) for the residential island in February 1992 and a majority of the voting residents approved a referendum to pay a yearly non ad valorem assessment of $200 per household for security service. The Duck Key Security District is the only Safe Neighborhood Improvement District in Monroe County. 

COMMUNITY SAFETY

Although Duck Key is not a gated community, security is of prime importance to home owners on Duck Key. Security personnel watch the entrance to the residential islands and patrol the streets regularly. Prior to legislating a security district on the island, property owners paid through the Property Owners' Association to provide nightly and weekend patrols for the residential islands.

Residents of Duck Key enjoy a sense of being more secure and know that patrols act as a deterent to crime and provide greater safety for young children . The District has a roving security service and an Advisory Board which make recommendations to the County Commissioners.

 

PHONE NUMBERS

Monroe County Sherriff's Office - The Number for NON-Emergencies MCSO is 289-2430.
EMERGENCY - Dial 911

Security Service for Duck Key -
The Duck Key Security Number is 684-0069 or 684-0033.

 

The islands' geography also helps provide safety. Curving roads and limited access to roads on the island act as a deterent to crime. Residential homes are set apart from the commercial portion of the island by a bridge and canals. Through traffic is discouraged in that there is only one way in and one way out of the residential island community. Traffic is also lessened by the curved roads and cul-de-sacs rather than access through a grid pattern.

ADVISORY BOARD MEMBERS AND ADDRESSS 

The Advisory Board is comprised of seven members all of which shall be District 4 appointments.  Members are appointed to serve a term of three (3) years.  Vacancies are filled for the unexpired portion of a term.
