Maybe we are catching up Brulen, but for me it if far beyond anything I’ve imagined. My town doesn’t have its own police. Our coverage by the County Sheriff’s Dept. consists of 1 person assigned to patrol 7 towns. The VT State police don’t even have cruisers out on patrol 24/7. I’m just recently getting in the habit of locking the doors when we’re home and inside the house. It’s always unlocked if I’m outside. My detached garage is never locked even if we’re away on vacation. I know this is not the way it is in urban areas but what Dorette described was beyond anything I had heard of before. I like life in my little bubble.
