5. he's a security guard not neighborhood watch

Neighborhood watch participants don't go on patrol. All they do is keep an eye out for their neighbors and call about anything they find to be suspicious as they go about their daily lives. That's it. It's just neighbors having an awareness of their community and willing to call police about anything suspicious going on and watching out for their neighbors. Nothing different in how communities used to be naturally.

The guard you encountered was a security guard paid to do a security job. You would have had no idea if he was just part of neighborhood watch since no one in neighborhood watch wears a uniform or should be questioning or detaining anyone even in a gated community. That's why many gated communities hire security guards to control who is allowed to enter.

Personally, I think such gated communities are creepy. I have no desire to have a hired guard paying attention to my comings and goings, who my visitors are or questioning my visitors or knowing what my visitors are doing there with me.
