This is not the best list to have your zip at the top of. While the number of ex-cons who violate their parole is reportedly low, there are criminal opportunities for those who do. Ever vigilant. Ever precautious.
Precaution unlike that of one of the many recent victims of West End/Elmington Park crime who told Channel 4 reporter Cynthia Williams that she did not have an alarm system on her house. Living in the city without an alarm system? I guess there are still people in the south who live without air conditioning, too, but probably not at ease.
Alarm systems are not 100%, but even the slightest sense of security is better than no sense of security.
