I have lived in Wellington for over 25 yrs. and in Palm Beach County for over 50 yrs. I have served on several departments including fire rescue. I have always felt very safe in Wellington. I very often don't lock my doors. That is not to say there is crime here just like everywhere but for Palm Beach County I personally think this is a very safe town. If you would like you can check some of the crime reports for our area or just talk to a local.
