Beech Grove Reviews

Beech Grove is a very education-driven community, in my experience people usually move here to enroll their students in the schools. It is, like any other small town, an area where everybody knows your business before you do. Good people live here. It is religious based, even if this is not extremely apparent upon inspection. If you are looking for a good place to raise your children, this is the place.
Review Beech Grove
We do have crime here, but I've not seen neighborhood watches. I've not seen may police officers around, though I do know that we have them because they do show in a timely manner when you need them. I've not seen them patrol neighborhoods for crime or watch, and sometimes there will be a lot of people speeding down some roads or streets but no cop to stop them because of it.
Where I live isn't very big, there isn't much crime that you hear of; there are some break ins that you hear about. But I think that happens in every neighborhood. There used to be a lot more nice looking houses, but since they raised property taxes a lot of people have either put their houses up for rent or they are still up for sale.
