Crime & Safety
Butler is not the greatest town for non-athletic people, especially if you're not white. The public schools are notoriously bad, and the police department isn't the greatest thing either.
I like Butler because it is a safe beautiful place near my favorite hiking spot and state park. I loe that I can get to other places similar to this from home. Although there isn't much diversity in any sense up here, there is peacefulness, safety, community, and peace along with natural beauty. Some bears here and there make an appearance once and a while. I don't like that my particular neighborhood doesn't have sidewalks. Our roads often have pot holes, as well. I would never leave this town. It is far enough away from work that even though the commute is a hassle, it is very worth it if you work a more city like job as I did when I first moved here.
Butler is a really friendly community and very family oriented. I truly wish the High School was bigger and more students attended.
