I have lived in Columbia for 3 months, it was recommended by multiple people when we found out we were moving to the area. We live in a seemingly quiet cul-de-sac with an entrance to the trail network that we have previously enjoyed taking our dogs on. We recently had our vehicle broken into, door window was completely smashed and belongings were scattered across left out in the rain. Turns out our vehicle was not the only one. There were 6 on our street, 5 on the next, and 3 on another. We were informed by other neighbors that this was not the first time (would've been nice if we had known prior). When the cop arrived he was disinterested in and seemed annoyed that he was there. He did inform us that there were more than the number that we had given him and that wasn't including the other side of the community which got hit hard as well. He also told us we would've been better off if we did not lock our vehicle and that it was just kids being kids. For the thousands of dollars of property damage on our street alone (not including stolen items) I felt like more could've been done especially if they are aware that this is a reoccurring issue. It's a shame because Columbia does have a variety of amenities but not of that matters if you don't feel safe in your own neighborhood.
