If you go as far as putting outdoor survalance cameras at you house, definatly concider putting one where the licence plate of a vehical leaving your property or street can be clearly seen on the vid. Like a wireless cam inside a post lamp by a walkway. Tracking down a masked man that beat you up and stole you stuff is hard,but running a plate is real easy.
Also in my opinion,being in a "nice" neighborhood makes you a more profitable target to thieves. So not expecting crime happens in nice neighborhoods is flawed logic to me.
