Boone Township Reviews

We actually just had a great example take place. Early this year (March-May), we did have a couple houses in the area that were broken in too. The local police were very prompt in dealing with the issues. They started regular patrols (at different times) and offered to drive by houses that weren't regularly occupied - we had them do this when we went on a vacation. Since the thieves have been caught (or at least I am assuming they've been caught as there have been no issues since and there hasn't been any talk of it either) the police have continued a semi-regular patrol and our area has been quite safe I feel.
Review Boone Township
I am very happy to live here and would definitely choose the area again. I love that it is centrally located to multiple large cities but is still private and out in the country. I love the rolling hills and fall colors. The people are great too. Though we tend to go about our own daily lives we are always there for each other if something were ever to happen. My only complaints would be the fact that because we are centrally located we aren't super close to anything making it have to be a planned trip in town instead of a quick five minute run over to the store or to an activity.
It's still a small town where not many crimes take place, relatively decent folks.
