                       e are delighted to welcome       to our newest
                       HBI Security officer, Henderson Dottsin.
             WEveryone we talk with has been VERY impressed
             with him…especially with his practice of stepping out of the
             gatehouse door to greet almost everyone coming into the
             neighborhood. And he has already saved the Association
             thousands of dollars in damages to our entryway from
             oversized trucks by preventing them from attempting to enter
             an area too small for their trucks to fit…which they regularly
             attempt to do because their phone told them to!

             Officer Dottsin has a long history of exemplary private
             security experience and brings a sound understanding of
             security principles to the job. He has extensive operational
             security experience that enables him to safely assess,
             engage, contain and de-escalate situations as they arise and
             to detect suspicious persons or activity in the neighborhood.
             His work in providing personal security and protection
             for high-profile and VIP clients gives him the experience,
             skills and understanding of the job to work effectively with
             everyone in our neighborhood.  HB
