Hi, see can be a bit of property crime but no more then anywhere else. For example some renters up the road moved in and had a party. That night someone entered my yard and met my dog- they ran very quickly out of my yard.
Neighbours tend to look out for each other- when this happened I called my neighbours who came over right away to check my yard, we door knocked and put the street on alert.
I had to put my car in to get repairs and got and unmarked courtesy car. Drove it home and my neighbors came around to check on my house because they knew it was not my car and not. time I would usually be home. I feel safe with my informal neighbourhood watch:)
