We had some trouble makers across the street. They were a bad lot, guns, drugs, etc. Before they got evicted, I would make my children sleep in the bedrooms in the back of the house, not in the ones by the street. I would see if you could move. No place is going to be 100% safe, but there are places more safe then others. Even on a tight budget I would find someplace that is safe.

I forgot about lighting. I have two street lamps in my yard that I pay for. My house it lit up like a local mall! I have not had any problems since those lights went up. I also have two street lights on the poles by the street. So four lights total. This place glows! I am also have a marksman gun award from my military days. I also have a house alarm system, but for medical insurance not theft. My service dog is a 'tiny' 84 lbs. He will take out anyone who comes near me. I live in an older neighborhood that is mostly retired people.

I agree with LoriKeet. Do whatever you can to make your home feel more safe to you and your family. Even though it doesn't seem like much, if you do anything to improve your property like suggested you might feel a little more in control of your house. Good luck!
