In my neighborhood, we all watch the street, especially when people are on trips or are snowbirds. Seems to work well. IMHO, however, the call should be to the sheriff, not community watch.

I appreciate you sharing the information. The OP said "May be worth it to get a security system". She didn't say "OMG! Every person in TV needs to get a security system!!!!". Common sense would tell people if they have had a few break-ins in the same vicinity, it may be worth looking into a security system. Why misinterpret then attack the OP? She is just helping.

I also think the OP correctly makes the point.
Please share where these risky areas are located?

We keep a security bar on our front door when we aren't home. Makes it almost impossible for someone to kick the door in.

I believe you can go online and purchase copies of security company signage or now-functioning security cameras, neither of either need to be hooked up and live. Just the appearance of the safety systems would give a potential thief pause especially if they cruise through an area first. But as a seasonal resident it does give me a concern as our Village grows with so many sub contractors and part-time workers that have so much to see as they drive through neighborhoods. Quite easy to tell who is here full time or seasonal. I feel it is unreasonable to rely and depend on our good friends and neighbors to keep a watchful eye and give them the responsibility to hope to see a potential problem if one should arise. Once they have broken in and taken property, it will be long gone and probably sold before they can be caught.

some of us do not believe that not agreeing with a post.....or in this case, questioning some aspect of a post.....or stating a differing opinion........ do not constitute an attack.

The victim of the break-in had a security bar on the front door.
