There is crime everywhere, but for the most part I feel very safe in Belmont.

It seems the main problem area is Wilkenson Blvd cooridor. Banks robbed, Car jackings at Walgreens now armed robbery at KFC. I'm thinking more police patrolling the strip would help deter crime to some degree. I sure criminals are looking for police cars before the rob the bank.

I don't recall a single business on Main Street that has been robbed. Of course I am sure nobody but me consider those places MAJOR.

And the main reason for this activity along Wilkinson corridor....EASY ACCESS TO AN ESCAPE ROUTE via the interstate. Ask the police they will tell you.

Belmont is a safe place but it could use more community involvement with people reporting things they think are suspicious. If you see something and you think it is out of the norm, call the police and let them know. AND NO I don't think people should take the enforcement upon themselves.
