Crime & Safety
Akron is a small town but it is near other towns such as Ephrata and Lititz. Shops and companies in Akron include Weiser's, a small grocery store with excellent fresh doughnuts, Royer's, a drug and gift store, as well as other small stores. We also have a small pizza/bar resturant and a road side barbeque trailer. Brewsters is the barbeque trailer has the best brisket and does catering as well. I have lived here for 16 years and love the town and all it has to offer.
There is not a lot of crime in the area, however there are people who do things that could cause more crime to come to the area. The police do not do anything about this until multiple people complain about them.
There is very little crime, we are a pretty safe area. We have lights that make noise for a blind lady so she knows when she can cross the street. We are very people oriented and we are safe.
