Should I be concerned

That it seems almost every other day when I come home from work, there are two cop cars somewhere in my apartment complex's parking lot?  They are usually right next to each other, arranged so that the two cops can have a chat.  I'm sure it's nothing, but it is still a little unsettling to drive past them so often and not know why.

    it's nothing.  cops like to talk; they just get to take their cubicles (squad cars) with them.

    Hey, if something bad happens, the cops are already there.

    Cops do that all the time. Everywhere. It might just be a good, central location, or they needed a change of scenery and picked your complex.

    If there's no lights and no one running - and they're paired up talking - I wouldn't worry. I've lived in shtty neighborhoods - they don't stop to chat when they're on their way to a shooting or waiting for SWAT to break down a door.

    Do they have a clear shot at the street?  Maybe it's a speed trap.  Maybe they sit there killing time while waiting to pick off speeders.

    Definitely not close enough to the street for a speed trap, unless they're monitoring speeding of the people driving through our complex.

    I think my concern is mostly out of the fact that I really hate where I live, and like to look for any extra reason to dislike it.  We switched to a month to month lease recently, but both have some job things to figure out before we want to decide where to live next.

    we call this a "donut exchange" - they're trading sprinkles for boston cremes. 

    I wouldn't worry about it unless you see them constantly pulling people over or arresting people - like others said - hopefully this would be a crime deterrent.

    We have the same thing at our apartment complex. It was really weird and creepy at first, but nothing has happened in over 2 years, so I think people are right - it's just a good meeting spot.
