  1. I just saw the police say that crime is down in green valley ranch, that’s not true it’s worse. We here gunshots all the time more gang presence in the area, cars stolen more. It use to be a nice neighborhood to live in not anymore. We have installed cameras,alarms . So the police are not telling the truth and it makes me mad.
