Crime & Safety
It's a small community, so people know each other. My family is born and raised here so everyone knows who I am. That's somewhat comforting when it's not annoying. But it's boring. No movie theater, no place to shop for clothes, no "hang out" for younger kids. We did build a new pool last summer and it's pretty awesome.
We have a small police force and there isn't always a cop on duty. Neighbors look out for neighbors here. We do have a very low rate of crime, but if something serious did happen it's usually quite a wait for the police, fire fighters or paramedics to show up.
It's a very rural area. We have tons of lakes, rivers and state parks within a 30 mile radius. Great hunting and fishing.
