Crime does occur such as robbery of homes and attempted break ins. The residents of the area look out for each other and strive to call in any suspicious behavior and are working on different methods to make the area safer. Police officers sometimes do not respond to a call in a good amount of time, but they do drive around the neighborhood striving to prevent crimes.

It's a quiet neighborhood overall and very slow pace. Every once awhile small crimes do occur, but overall residents of this area take care of each other and strive to improve the community.
