Irvine is one of the safest cities in the United States. There aren't that many police around because, usually, they aren't needed. There aren't many crimes that are happening beyond minor traffic violations and the occasional loud party.

It is very well maintained compared to other places I've lived. The general age is somewhat high, though there is a elementary and middle school nearby.
The leasing office provides movie nights, annual events, holiday events, and many recreational activities available to residents. I believe many choose to people stay for years in this apartment complex.
