Should I live on base or off base?
This is the most popular question! Eglin and Hurlburt both offer base housing, much of which is brand new. Eglin housing is managed by Corvais and your leadership should be able to direct you toward their offices.
To help you understand your off base options, I will publish market activity reports and neighborhood reports on the largest towns around Eglin Air Force Base and Hurlburt Field.

Where can you find crime information?
Your most reliable source of information is the local police department. One online resource, however, that gives sex offender crime information is Family Watchdog, available at www.familywatchdog.us.
