These communities are so close that you'll likely see no negligible difference in this and most other features. With this said, consulting with the local police or sheriff's department should provide you with the detailed information you require.
You are targeting one of the best locations in Florida for value and quality of life for residents. I'd be happy to provide you with information as required.
