    Very safe, police are visible and responsive.
    Review Buckner
    There is some crime here in Louisville like all cities, however I feel like there are great precautions in place that work as a deterrent for criminals.
    Even if I could do it all over again, I would still choose to live in Oldham County, Kentucky. This area makes me feel safe, and at home. The people that have built this community are welcoming and friendly to strangers and that makes having a home here worth having.
