Given the size based on how many people you say would likely be living in such a community it would probably take close to 50 to 75 people to man all the entrance/egress points, perimeter watch and roving guards inside.
These are from speech notes from a guy named Jason Bradford, to a Rotary group in northern California. I don't know where he got them. The presentation used to be online here, but the link is broken, so I don't know where it is now.
