I Feel Safe in My Childhood Home Once Again

I loved the city and home that I grew up in so much that I decided to move back there after getting a divorce in my thirties. It was eye opening to see that my old neighborhood had changed so much while I was away. It used to be a somewhat safe neighborhood, but there are a lot of burglaries now. I no longer need to worry about it now that I had ADT in El Paso come to the old home that I grew up in to put in an alarm system. I feel safer now, and a lot of my neighbors have been following suit and having one put into their homes after they learned that I did it.

As a child, my parents knew it was safe to let me go outside to play in the neighborhood on my own. We lived on a street that was quiet and very little happened. Often, my friends and I didn’t even go home until dinner time and the sun was setting. I moved away after college, but my parents kept that home for decades after I left. My father passed away first, and then around the time that I was getting a divorce, my mom passed away. She left the house to me. I had been planning to sell it, but when I went home to go through the house, I decided to stay.

It only took about a week in my old house to learn that a lot of suspect people lived in the nearby apartment complexes. The neighbors warned me that there is a lot of criminal activity in the area, and many people have come home at night to find their homes burglarized. It makes no sense to be a sitting duck, so I got an alarm system right away. I have signs displayed out in front of the house to let everyone know that the home is armed with a good system.
