Crime & Safety
It's Kansas. Anybody that lives in Kansas knows that our seasons come with all the extremes. Heck, we could experience all four seasons in the same week! You never know what to expect, so when it's nice, you really learn to appreciate it. The weather could change from sunny and 75 one day to 20 degrees and snowing the next.
The businesses in this area are pretty great. I have not had any problems thus far. Whenever I need something, I am able to go somewhere locally to get it, whether it is food, clothes, medicine, etc. I have not encountered any bad service anywhere. The only thing that is limited is the clothing stores. There is not that many clothing stores nearby, and our community could use more.
I've lived here for eight years and have never heard of any break-in's or serious crime in the area. The police tend to socialize with each other more than they patrol the neighborhood. I often see them parked at a gas station in the next town over, which makes me wonder who is watching our town...
