Pemberton Heights is a unique subdivision centrally located in Austin. In its June 1998 issue, Town & Country magazine named Pemberton Heights as one of the 25 Platinum Addresses in the United States.
In 2007, the American Planning Association listed Pemberton Heights (along with the other neighborhoods Old West Austin) as one of its “great places” neighborhoods.
Pemberton Heights Neighborhood Association (“PHNA”) works in active participation with the residents of Pemberton Heights to: enhance, protect and preserve the prestige, quality and character of the neighborhood; build a sense of community among its diverse members; and, develop and implement goals designed to promote mutual interests of the residents of Pemberton Heights.
The PHNA Security Program is a privately funded program serving the Pemberton Heights neighborhood. The program provides up to 20 hours per week of uniformed security officer patrols and up to 40 hours during times of high risk and when a large number of neighbors are out of the neighborhood such as Christmas, Spring Break, August, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years.
The Patrol Officers are from private security firm, Sentry, and they patrol subject to specific Patrol Orders which task them to patrol the entire neighborhood, check the homes on the Away From Home List and then position themselves at ingress and egress points and observe traffic into and out of the neighborhood. The officers patrol the neighborhood in marked security patrol vehicles from Sentry.
At all times, the Patrol Officers are in contact with APD Dispatch to ensure timely response to incidents of all kinds.
