Safety & Security Update
The Importance of Reporting
As part of the Neighborhood Watch Program, the CSPD Crime Prevention Program focuses on providing citizens and businesses with tips on how to prevent becoming a victim of a crime.
Officer Chris Ausec is the officer assigned to the Peregrine community and he is dedicated to:
- Reducing crime and the fear of crime
- Increasing the knowledge of citizens in providing “pro-active” crime prevention strategies
- Encouraging and training citizens in neighborhood watch activities
- Training the community in a wide array of crime prevention approaches & techniques
- Providing home and business security checks
A topic that continues to arise is the importance of reporting all crimes, whether big or small in severity. This can be done in several ways:Report a Crime Online. This site will clearly outline the details of what and how to report. Reporting all incidents, big or small, provides valuable data to CSPD. They use this data to track crime patterns, identify hot spots and further protect our community. Without this data, they are unaware of the issues in our neighborhood and aren’t able to provide resources that we feel may be necessary. Additionally, the small crimes we experience now, may grow into large crimes in the future if not addressed. We encourage you to ‘See Something, Say Something’ and report all incidents to CSPD. This is our first step as a community to help in the process. The Peregrine HOA is re-establishing the Neighborhood Watch program. If you’re interested in volunteering for this group, please contact Steve Garcia for more information.– For immediate situations, call 9-1-1. Stop a crime, report a fire, save a life. – For non-emergency situations, call (719) 444-7000. – For non-emergency issues, you can also
Peregrine Fire MitigationSmart Construction & Wildfire Mitigation

An excerpt from the Ignition Resistant Construction Design Manual:Ignition Resistant Construction Design Manual – with the goal of reasonable design that will improve the odds of a home surviving a wildfire event with little or no firefighter intervention. If you have any questions or concerns regarding fire mitigation within Peregrine, please contact Steve Garcia, Safety & Security Committee Lead.Many people enjoy the opportunity to reside within the Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) areas of this community as a way to embrace the beauty of nature and wildlife, while still having the convenience of city living. However, what most people don’t realize when they move into the WUI areas of this community, is that they have chosen to reside in one of the largest WUI zones in the entire country. In fact, there are roughly 35,115 parcels in the WUI and roughly 31,535 of those parcels are residential lots or addresses that have been identified as at-risk of wildfire in Colorado Springs. As a result of the Waldo Canyon Fire and the disastrous outcomes that were experienced, the Colorado Springs Fire Department, in partnership with the Colorado Springs Housing and Building Association (HBA), collaborated to address some critical issues in house design and construction. The Colorado Springs Fire Department has written this manual –
