Here is some information on your neighborhood.
The police have made a great deal of headway in detouring crime in many areas of Lee County. There are things that home owners that are not year-round residents can do to assist in keeping their properties as safe as possible: Outside motion lighting, PVS pipe in all of your double hung windows and sliders, using hurricane glass, keep a radio monitored alarm system, put cage system on your a/c and water system. Also, there are motion lights that have the ability to take pictures if they are tripped. If you make your property a fortress the would-be thief wont even try to go in.
The business' that buy copper now require people to be finger printed and more and more people caging their equipment is the reason for the reduction in A/C theft. Hope this has been helpful to you.
