There are a few instances that are very unsettling, such as having to be on "lockdown" for about three hours due to nearby shootings, but the crime is practically invisible and the law enforcement is very effective.

This place is okay. I like it because it is peaceful i never leave my room unless i have to go to school or work, I've noticed that there can be gangs in this area, because there is graffiti in the ally. It's not the neighborhood people would like to live in, but I like it.
I've seen police officers in my neighborhood lots of times, But i never notice why they are there, Im pretty sure it is because of the gang related people who live in this area. I feel like my neighborhood is safe, if you stay out of trouble.
