    It is not too far from Charlottesville. Lots of "old money" in that area, but it is supposed to be a very nice place.

    I never knew that they had their own police department, though. I know nothing about the size, type or structure of the agency, but I reckon you could find out a lot by doing a Google search on it. They have an "association" there, so that should tell you it is a pretty exclusive type of community.

    Not likely you will be getting a lot of calls about someone having a junked car in their front yard -- but you better be prepared to deal with snobby teenage children of those who can afford to live there.


    Good luck!!

        Lake Monticello is a gated community in Fluvanna county about 20 minutes from C'Ville. PD there is pretty much grounds security. It may be an in to get certified, but don't expect too much beyond delivering nasty letters from the HOA. It used to be one of the only affordable places to live around here, but it's not so affordable any more. Quite a few cops from C'Ville and Albemarle live there. Many of the residents are transplants and not the local "old money."

          That sounds like the City of Atlantis, FL. The entire city limits is a gated community.
          That's what they do, it's a trailer park.

              Yeah, HOA covers swimming in the lake, but you have to pay to use the pool. I am not sure if the agency is accredited, but by law you one year to become certified once you are sworn in VA.

              The lake's jurisdiction is entirely residential, there is a food lion and a restaurant outside the gates.

                This is too funny. I never thought I'd see the LMOA police department be the subject of a forum thread. I live in Lake Monticello. Here's a couple sites with some info.

                www.lmoa.org
                www.fluvannaonline.com

                We have about 10,000 residents in the neighborhood. The main section is gated and there are 3 ungated sections. We have a large lake with 5 beaches and a smaller fishing lake. There used to be mainly old people retired from the northeast but now many young families live here. I fall into the later category.

                The PD gets their authority from the sheriff I believe. I'm not 100% sure on that though. The are accredited though. They patrol the residential areas. They used to be able to patrol the main roads around the lake but that went away for some reason. They do some speed enforcement and handling "domestic" situations around the lake. Some people in here can be a bit uptight so I imagine the PD has to deal with some of that. Some people aren't as important as they think they are. They don't pay squat from what I hear. Don't count on it as your primary income. You'll be on WIC if you do.

                Let me know if you have any more questions. I'll answer them if I can. I'm VSP FWIW.

                  At first glance I thought it said, "I never thought I'd see the LMAO police department. . ."
