White Oak Crime Statistics & Overview
White Oak, Texas has grown by about 20% over the past ~30 years, from roughly 5,000 residents in 1990 to around 6,300 residents as of 2017. It’s received a solid A rating from Area Vibes for its low crime rate, which is nice to see. There were 0 murders reported on the latest crime statistic update, which should make residents feel great, as that’s pretty rare for a town with a population above a few thousand residents.
With that said, there was still a fair amount of property crimes committed, with 120 reports on the most recent update:

Annual Property Crimes: 120
Unfortunately, even in areas where violent crime is almost non-existent, there’s still a fair share of property crimes committed each year, as shown from the numbers above. About 19 people per 1000 residents will be a victim of property crime in White Oak each year. This is much lower than most of the surrounding areas, but not quite the lowest.
While crime is on the low side, leaving your home and property wide open to potential criminals and bad-actors isn’t the wisest move; it’s better to be protected and prepared than to become the next victim. Fortunately, securing your family, home, and assets is easy with a reliable alarm system–if you don’t have one or have an out-of-date solution, now is a great time to consider investing in one or upgrading your current setup.
White Oak Residential Home Security System Options
While White Oak is a peaceful community, its residents aren’t immune from bad actors. The odds of being a victim of property crime are fairly slim, but that doesn’t mean that the chance doesn’t exist, so it’s better to be safe than sorry. After all, smart burglars and thieves stake out homes before breaking in, so if they’re able to determine you don’t have adequate security, they’re much more likely to strike when the opportunity arises.
Fortunately, you can protect your family, home, and property without much hassle or cost. Having a reliable alarm system installed can be the difference between keeping your premises guarded or being the next victim of property crime in the area. A decent alarm system can help you monitor your home day and night and alert you of any suspicious activity, and also alert White Oak law enforcement should there be a threat to your home.
Basic protection can cover your windows and doors to ensure there’s no unexpected entries, and more advanced protection is available if you decide to bolster your security. Such protection can include CCTV monitoring, perimeter monitoring, and more. With that said, not all security solutions are equally effective. The last thing you want is a system that throws false alarms. Not only can less-adequate systems cause you undue stress, they can also result in warning and fines from the police.
