Default 55 an older

From what I have read, those under 55 getting into trouble are age 19 and over living with someone who is age 55 and older which is legal in the Villages.

Most of it is younger people living in surrounding communities not in the Villages.

Try calling the sheriff office and look at their arrest. You will get your answer. The way a lot get here is they have parents here and usually have been in trouble.They move in with mom and Dad and then In trouble again.Check if you are moving for sexual affenders,particularly if you have children.This is a great place to live but it is not without its crime..again check with the sheriff

They are correct that children must be over 18 to live with parents..Don't be afraid to move here, just be careful like you would in every city. We do have a great community watch that tries to drive through each neighborhood to keep us protected

Confusion about age restriction in 55+ communities is common, but per federal law, it goes like this: at least 80% of the units must be occupied by someone 55 or older. That's it. The Villages, and any other 55 and older development, can do whatever they want with the remaining 20%. They can make it all 55+ or all under 55 or any combination they choose.

As someone under 55 who lives with a parent in TV and reads the news daily, I feel like a disproportionate number of residents who get in serious trouble here are under 55 and living in a parent or other relative's home. That being said, considering the size of TV, there's very little crime of any sort. I think TV is an incredibly safe, quite, and friendly place, relative to the rest of the country, and I bet you won't regret buying here!
In fact, if you do the math, you'll find that it's mathematically possible, although extremely unlikely, for over 80% of the people living here to be under 55.

And yes, we have one of the lowest crime rates in the world. That doesn't mean that there is zero crime, but for all of the people who are complaining that TV is going to hell and is dangerous, I'd like to see crime statistics of your home towns compared to The Villages.

Default Speakin' of that

Funny (not as in Ha Ha but as in peculiar)

I read this thread yesterday with only a modicum of interest (I'm a seasonal resident) and today I read this @ TVNews:
Villagers’ son arrested after reportedly leaving critically injured woman after night of drinking

you'll have to go to the competing news ; I tried the url input tool several times - no workie - I guess it won't allow a url from a competitor or the tool is inop
