Bayamón Reviews

Crime rarely ever occurs in this area. There are not many incidents that go on related to rape, murder, vandalism, burglary or others. The police do regular rounds during high hours of the night. One topic that does concern me when it comes to safety in the area is the fact that in some places there are abandoned cars or buildings that pave the way for the propagation of pest and improper use of the structure. I would like to see these issues being addressed because they are not only crime and safety issues but they also threaten the health of citizens adjacent to the area.
The area where I live has a very calm and atmosphere where crime rarely ever happens. I wouldn't change this area for any other because it is very well localized given the fact that it is concentric and of easy access to many crucial other places like hospitals, schools, universities, supermarkets, banks, etc. I see improvement for this area in a near future because the major y always working towards bettering the city.
Bayamon is part of the metropolitan area of Puerto Rico. There is a lot of shopping, medical facilities, colleges and it is accessible by train. Being a busy city crime is always an issue but local goverment is involved and takes care of many of issues. I rank this area in the top 10th percent of the country. I would choose to live here again. If reestructuring of city is accomplished and more employment opportunities are created this city will stay on the top 10th per cent.
