The crime threat doesn't seem to bad. On the daily i see between 2-3 cops cars, or trucks strolling the streets. I have a very strong sense of safety where i live. There are places i wouldn't want to go at night, but there are places like that in every town. The only concern i may have is all the meth labs that are rumored to be around. other then that i have no complaints.

Its a great place, small enough to keep the country feel, but big enough to have all the necessities at hand. People say there is not much to do here, but in my opinion its all how you look at it. I really enjoy the area and would definitely live here again.
Klamath Falls is a beautiful place to live and raise a family. The views from anywhere in town are breathtaking!
