Police have always responded when I have called, however never seem to be able to do anything about the problem. (especially if it involves African American people). The first thing they ask is to describe the perpetrator, what happened and what direction they went. The moment African American is said they say "we'll see what we can do" and they leave. We have had shootings, robbery, front doors kicked in and assaults. Our apartment management does nothing about it. We have no on site security at all.

People are busy with their lives, but when we see each other we smile friendly and say "hi". People tend to live here reallyblong because the area looks nice and it is considered safe. The area is pet friendly, and there are different zones where you can walk tre pets. As for community events, I do not have so much time to involve, but there is not sonmuch advertising either, since I did not hear about them organizing something.
The neighborhood here includes really expensive houses. You do not see so often houses for selling because people like this area. There are some affordable renting options though, with a price a little higher than other areas, but if you want safety and quiet, than I think the raport between quality and price is great.
