I am curious, we always hear stories about house break ins, what is the story with condo break ins.

It depends on the location and how seriously the owners consider security. Where I work we have security guards 5PM to 8AM and surveillance cameras. No break ins.

Nosey neighbors are really a blessing in disguise. I live in a condo in FL and the older people watch EVERYTHING.......and ask quesitons
and call the police over the smallest things but....we have NO CRIME AT ALL, they won;t let anyone in and are very light sleepers!

On condo row about over a year ago a woman found a man in her condo during the night. He was robbing her and when she got up he ran.

Last year there was a unit broken into during the weekday. A neighbor saw it but didn't want to get involved(td).

To my knowledge the 66 condo unit complex on the other side of Salt River has had zero issues with breakins. The homeowner association there has put an emphasis on security over the years. 24/7 video cameras are installed at key locations on the property.

I agree. That would be the Gentle Winds condos. I live near there, and I have never heard of any break-ins there.

I manage Colony Cove on Condo Row. I freaked out the first time I saw the location. I had a lot of experience in Facilities management in the corporate world and they are serious about security. I worked in the states , DR and PR so I had an insight to the process. Security is all about access and demonstrating a secure presence. A combination of entry gate, off hour guards and surveillance cameras as well as promoting a sense of community are vital to securing a property. People need to feel safe, especially visitors who have heard the stories.

Security is an ongoing process that can be adjusted for the seasons, also it is important for owners and guests to be informed how the system works and take some responsibility for their own safety. The balance is to have the property secure without looking or feeling like Fort Knox

One of the greatest features of St C condos is #1-they are situated on seaside rock cliffs so undesirables are unable to walk the beachfront to look for easy access to condo units. #2 There is a security gate #3 There are security guards at the gate as well as on the property. #4 The condo employees are vigilant about keeping an eye out for unusual behavior or unfamiliar faces as well as condo residents at home during the day and night.

No I don't think so. Actually, because STT has more tourism, property crimes are much greater there. The murder rate on both islands is similar and changes from week to week. As most people who post here know, the murders are mostly drug, gang and domestic.

Do you realize that, if you are a US citizen, you will not be allowed to work in the BVI? I think it sounds like you need to do a little more research.

Actually you absolutely can work there as an American. First the job must be unable to be filled by a local/belonger. Then it's open to whomever, long as they have to proper paperwork to work. I've met plenty of Americans working there. Love the BVIs. But like St John, just don't see how I can afford it.
