Boles Acres Reviews

There is a large presence of government officials in the area. We have the county sheriff, city police, boarder patrol, and an Air Force base and Army base. All of these are located here in the town. This means many people are doing well, but; however are not permanent residence in the city. The locals have hard times finding and keeping jobs.

There is a lot of unemployment in this area, so there are some sketchy people around. But overall, there is high visibility of police and military which makes the area very safe.
