Neighborhood Watch
Neighborhood Crime Watch Program
As a result of the reported increase of auto burglaries within the community in 2008, the Board adopted a Neighborhood Watch Program. This program includes Crime Watch web alerts and the notification of residents with signs by the front gate. The program is dependent on residents reporting criminal activities to the Sheriff's office and the Ruby Lake Board of Directors via the Ruby Lake web site or personal contact with a Board member.

Winter Haven Police    863-291-5858
​Polk Sheriff's Office     863-298-6200  Ext. 9
​Emergencies               Dial 911

Here are the details of the  program:

1) Report any criminal activity to the Polk County Sheriff's office as soon as possible.

2) Report the criminal activity to a Board member as soon as possible. This can be done by personally speaking with a Board member or reporting the incident on the Ruby Lake web site under "Contact Web Administrator' on the main page. Please give us as much detail as possible so that we can alert others of the incident. No name or address will be released to the public to protect your confidentiality.

3) The report will be verified with the Sheriff's office to ensure that it has been reported and to make sure all the facts are accurate.

4) A Crime Watch Alert sign will be posted by the front gate. It will advise you to check the web site ( for details.

5) A Crime Watch Alert Notice will be placed on this page giving details and suggesting ways to prevent harm or damage to you, your family and your property.

6) The Crime Watch Notice will remain on the web site until the Board feels that adequate notice has been given.

The key to the success of this program is the reporting of any criminal activity to the Sheriff's office and the Ruby Lake Board of Directors. This will help prevent further criminal acts. Be on Watch throughout your community and around your home. Take all the necessary steps to protect yourself, your family and your possessions.
