In the last 6 months we have seen an increases in break-ins in my area. The crimes have ranged from car and home breakins. The neighbors have really joined together and started watching out for each others homes more. Law enforcement has encouraged to call in if any suspicious activity is noticed in area.

I live in a quiet neighborhood of only 3 houses that I can see from my home. I live on a private road that is maintained by families on the road. I would love to live in the same kind of atmosphere when I have a family. I think that this area will continue to grow with more neighborhoods and more commercial growth close to the area but more to the interstate.
The attractions are in near by Greensboro, N.C.
