Brady is a small town in the middle of Texas. You're a few hours from all major cities. 3.5 hours to DFW, 2 hours to ATX, 2 hours to SATX, and only 4.5 hours to Houston. Great place to get away from the big city, without going to far!
Review Brady
Most of the time the law is only in a couple of places during the day and in the morning. They are very repetitive in there line of duty. For instance, someone may get pulled over for a license plate light being out of a trailer license plate not being where the cop wants it to be. Not to mention all the drugs being dealt around town. They do nothing about it but send the kid home and slap him on the wrist.
The Brady area is primarily agricultural. It has several sand mines(used in the oil field) that are very large employers. There is some light manufacturing and one large manufacturing plant which makes oil rigs and trailers. Brady also has a very active airport which houses a couple of airplane painting/refurbishing/restoring companies.
