Green Valley : Arizona
Green Valley had a total of 4 violent crimes and 534 property crimes last year which is far below the average for Arizona and the nation as a whole. The area is primarily comprised of retirees with more than 80% of Green Valley being age restricted. The general lack of a younger population spares Green Valley from the majority of "nuisance" type crimes, drugs and violent crimes commonly found in most cities.
Additionally the area has one of the largest Auxillary Sheriff patrol forces in the country with 122 volunteers, mostly made up of retired law enforcement professionals. This Auxillary Sherriff team put in an amount of hours last year equal to an additional 22 full time deputies patrolling the Green Valley area.
There is a common myth that the area is affected by crime from "illegal alien" traffic but crime data and reports simply don't support this claim.
While there are many medical offices and facilities in Green Valley, Tucson offers a number major hospitals along with the University of Arizona "teaching" hospital.
An Interstate 19 runs through the middle of the community.

|Green Valley Running Out Of Water?|
|Ok I've been considering moving to GV specifically Robson Quail Creek when we retire in December. After doing some research I've discovered some very disturbing data about the polluted ground water and the non sustainable water supply in the aquifer. There are at least three huge copper mines and a farming company in the area. They are using tremendous amounts of non replenishing water from the only aquifer. The tailings from the mines are leeching into the ground water. Some reports back in 2010 estimated at the present rate the water would run out in 10 years. Now there is a CAP project to run a 36" pipeline 10 miles long from the north to ponds in GV used to recharge the aquifer. This project is only just beginning this summer. Seems to me all the public agencies are just dodging this issue for obvious reasons. The home prices would drop to nothing without water. Believe it or don't believe it I don't care but do yourself a favor and research the water supply in GV beforer you buy.|

|A Great Place to Live|
|Lived in GV for four years. Agree with all the good comments that folks have made and take exception to some of the bad ones. I served with the Sherriffs Auxiliary for two years and would say that GV is one of the safer places in this country to live. We patrolled every neighborhood at least twice a day with 4-5 patrol cars on the road at all times during the day. Green Valley Rec is an outstanding organization and very reasonable (after the initial buy-in) on an annual basis. In our particular neighborhood (approx. 160 homes) we had 6 organized activities every month: 2 couples (potluck and wine tasting), 2 ladies (luncheon and book club), and 2 mens (luncheon and poker night). I would recommend Green Valley to anyone.|
