  1. Looks like you can’t leave construction sites without a watchdog on the premises. A well trained German shepherd dog should do the trick. It would be cheaper than a guard.

  2. Since when is the LCSW supposed to patrol a construction site. I thought they were here to keep watch over the community and assist the people in lakewood. When did they become the security for construction sites around lakewood. I think the developer should arrange security at his own expense for protection of the products and supplies he has on the site..not the LCSW
