A WBRZ-TV investigation compares the security of gated and non-gated apartment complexes. The analysis of crime statistics surprisingly finds "that in most areas non-gated apartments are safer," and that some criminals might be actually more attracted to gated communities. The story details how "many people pay the extra money each month for the added security of a gated apartment complex," although some of these widely advertised complexes "didn't even have a fence."
