I pay only $80 a quarter to Village alarm and they did a great job. I like having an alarm especially when out of town.

The Villages is safer by far than where most of us used to live. Kudo's to the devoted men and women in a variety of law enforcement districts who watch out for us and many thanks to the folks in Villages watch who drive around and keep an eye on things and report any suspicious things like garage doors up in the middle of the night. Many thanks to the watchful eyes of all the people who live here who used to be nurses and doctors and teachers and business executives and bakers and plumbers who are still smart as tacks and watch others now almost full time.

It still doesn't hurt to get doorbell cameras and other surveillance cameras and live next or near to someone who is further protected, I am guessing close to half of Villagers are.

If something or someone looks out of place call the police. Invite them to come to your local groups to talk about security.

During high season we have crooks who also come for the warm weather and easy pickin's.

If someone looks out of place walking down the street take their picture and let them see you do it. Then run in the house.

It is better to laugh than to cry.

I'm not saying there is no crime in TV but it is very small compared to where I used to live.

I moved from a town that at once was the murder capital of the US. I have never felt safer living in TV. Heck, I even left my house unlocked a couple of times in the 7 Years I have been here with no problems. No town is 100% crime free but everyone has to do what's right for themselves especially for those who would worry about a home invasion. IMHO
