Crime & Safety
I have loved growing up in Burbank. Burbank, Washington is far enough into the country to be a nice, comfortable, small town, while still being a half hour away from the next town. Growing up in Burbank has made me appreciate the quiet, love the stillness, and enjoy living in a small town. The atmosphere of my home town is very quiet and close-knit. Although there are many exciting and boisterous places that I could have grown up in, I wouldn't trade growing up in Burbank for anywhere else in the world.
There is not much crime in Burbank. I have heard of a couple shootings and break-ins in the past couple years, but any disturbance or crime is kept fairly quiet. The police force in Burbank is very prevalent. There are multiple police officers that live in my neighborhood, which makes me feel safer. When driving around, I usually see one or two police either parked or driving around town. I feel very safe living in Burbank.
Part of it needs better housing instead of trailers. I like the openness but the school isn't where I would want my kids. I would live here just take my kids somewhere else for school or homeschool them.
