    "Guarded subdivisions" are overrated. The guards will run away at the first sign of trouble. Subdivision fees will not be paid equally by everyone and the services they pay for will go down the shitter.

    What?

    They will only run away if they are awake!!! Most spend a large part of their shifts sleeping. As stated by Wrye - they only serve to give a false sense of security. By way of an example: many moons ago I met a lass up in Manila who had worked for a while as an armed security guard. Being an ex-cop I was interested to learn what sort of firearms training was involved. She went on to inform me that she was only shown how to operate the weapon (an antiquated S@W 38 special) as bullets cost to much. So she'd never fired the thing at all. Very reassuring!!!

    I was understand what your mean. What the place will be safe if the "guarded subdivisions" are not safe?

    My English is not so good. I am speak russian. I was mean "enumerate: say as they (guarded subdivisions) are called".

    Thanks for replies

    Not any safer than an a place without a guard. Petty theft is about all you have to worry about in Dumaguete. There have been plenty of instances of murder and a bit of hostage taking in and around Dumaguete over the years though. Most of that type of stuff seems to be targeted at unruly drunks and the elderly that are easy targets.....or personal vendettas. And these days if you want to get away with murder just carry around a bit of shabu dust to sprinkle on your victim and all is forgiven.

    If you are interested in living in Dauin there is a good place available there. I looked at it when I moved here and it looked good to me. The only problem is that Dauin is about a 30 minute ride on the highway from Dumaguete. I only mention it because you mentioned a guard and this place seems secure and has a few houses and apartments on the property. The family that runs it lives on the premises and seem to be very nice people. They are locals. If you want to check it out they have an add on this site. Good Luck If these links don't work, use the search feature in the top right of this site with the name geraldine email for her is geraldine_delcampo@yahoo.com

    I’m looking at pulling up stumps here in Panglao, & I’ll be headed over Dumaguete way.
    It’s a must for me to be in a gated secure compound.
    I understand that the guards themselves, are mostly useless....but for the “would be”crims....if they know there’s a guard on duty....they’ll try another place.
    It’s also a big plus when the owner & his family are in the same complex too.

    I've known plenty of places with a guard that have been robbed (and even one that the had owners robbed at gun point). Guard ran away. I knew one property owner that caught his guard sleeping and took his gun away while he was catching some z's. Guards are completely useless and every criminal knows it.

    All you are paying for is for a local to put on a uniform and take a nap at your property. If you report a guard and get them fired the chances of you getting robbed or killed will go up exponentially.

    I had such an experience. At a resort where I was staying long-term, I complained, to the male management partner, who was by the way a policeman, that the security guard was a peeping tom. Combined with a previous complaint from another resident, this caused the manager to fire the guard company. The very next night, the female partner's jewelry box was robbed. They knew who the perpetrator was, and quickly captured him. (In the neighborhoods, they usually know.) And he was not connected to the guard company. I suppose he was watching, and observed the absence of a guard.
