Default Hows crime-rate in Sequim?

Any chance of gang-play? If its starting, it needs to be stopped. We moved out of a town in CA (Eureka) that 7-8 years ago, had some 'wanna-be's' and everyone thought if we ignore it it'll leave.....WRONG. Now it a truly dangerous place to live (I wouldn't want to go back there anyway!) My wife was born in Seattle, and we have heard Sequim is still ok. Any feedback would help. I'm from Tx, so I understand there is a difference in climate, but were just starting to look!
Thanks,
Mid

Sequim has several active gangs, the OG (Old geezers), the OG1 (Older Geezers), and the OG2 (Oldest Geezers).
They are always well armed with a wide assortment of drivers and irons.
So far no turf wars have broken out, but it's just a matter of time.

Thanks for the great post! Too funny ...I still have a smile on my face.

Yeah, we all know that Sequim is noted for its extremely large retirement community.

I wouldn't think they have a gang problem but I haven't been there in years. If anybody knows first hand, keep the posts coming!

Well, if we get there, those OG's, OG1's AND 2's better watch out. After reading your post, I have decided to clean up my TaylorMade 300ti and 3/5 Super-Steels, re-grip my LCG's, and start plannin' my move!



BTW....my 'handle for the first 25 or so years, was Fast Fred, now, at 61, I am also referred to as Fat Fred! My usual handle is FatFreddiesCat!

Sorry for the bump, but I wanted to add my agreement.

I spend summers outside of Sequim, in a village called Blyn. Sequim is not trouble-free; petty crime is moderate. The town itself is not well-off, and I imagine drug-related thefts happen. But in a place where the average resident is eligible for Social Security, how much crime's there gonna be?

Sequim (and outlying areas) is booming, however, and with growth comes change. But mostly these new developments are only richening the blood. I wouldn't worry; Sequim isn't Pleasantville, but I wouldn't worry about walking the streets at 4 AM. Mostly because most of its residents go to sleep at 6:30 and are probably awake by then.

Well, I live in Sequim and each of you have a point. We have a saying here, you can shoot a cannon down main street after 7.00 PM.
The only crime I have seen are the local teen agers out raising H--L.
Thats not to say there isn't stuff going on behind the scenes. I'd say drugs and alcohlol play a role in almost every community, but here it's mostly petty stuff.
My suggestion is to call the Sequim Police dept on ther "none hot line" 360-683-7227 and ask them some questions.
The most noise comes from an occasional "BOOM BOX" or the City High School Band practicing on the residential city streets. Oh ...and yes, that DAMN ROBBIN that starts chirpping at daybreak !!!!!
If you come to Sequim watch your speed.....There looking for extra revenues.

Good Luck,

Silverfox
