Crime is increasing and more violent in past 3-4 years. I've been here over 20 years and see the difference. During the pandemic there was a influx from larger communities avoiding the COVID risks associated with population density. That plus we have the worse mayor ever - a lying phony that campaigned on a platform of limiting development and then when elected created more over development than has been seen in the previous 20 years. Pre-2020 Burlington was chill and a nice quiet community to raise a family. Still comparatively better than other areas close by but won't be for long... especially with the current mayor. Once the last of my kids are "launched" and on their own in the next couple of years I'll be moving away.(agree with Anon Jan 27th but I think Burlington has caught up surpassed Milton for crime & agree with Apr 26...Anon Nov 14... seriously? not in my 20+ years)

Crime happens everywhere it’s all about connections so certain individuals can get u into trouble might not be bad in poverty but that doesn’t mean u take the place as a joke that goes for any place in the world.

Women walk around topless with no issue so I'd consider it rather safe.
