I've lived here all my life. Its a great area in the metroplex. It's safe, the schools are providing great educational opportunities and the crime is at a bare minimum.

I feel comfortable and secure in this area but the major reasons are because of my alarm system and security cameras surrounding the house.
Crime is only an issue if you are not acquainted with your neighbors. Most people get to know their neighbors and watch each others house if one is not present at the home.
