I have lived in Byram since Feb of 05, when I moved here for work. We bought a house on Gary rd and I had great neighbors. Lots of diversity in Byram, lots of hard working folks who want a nice place to live. Many of them moved Away from Jackson Due to crime, crumbling roads and high property taxes. In the time I’ve lived here I have watched Byram become incorporated and Lots of businesses move in. As someone else pointed out even the local mom and pops have continued to do well. You feel safe here. Right after Byram became an official city, there were 3 attempted bank robberies in a very short amount of time. I say attempted, because all 3 times Byram police department apprehended all of the suspects in less than and hour or 2. I guess they were testing BPD, because there hasn’t been another one since. I moved just outside of the city limits about a year ago probably less than a mile. But Byram still where I consider myself living. I shop, eat and go to church in Byram.

If there is one thing that I can say about Byram, it would be this: it is a small town with a close-knit community. I moved to Byram at the age of seven. Since then, I have watched the community around me grow and prosper. I have seen the infrastructure improve and watched as new businesses came and job opportunities increase. However, the family-run businesses already established here still thrived. Byram prides itself in safety, which is shown through the low number of reported crimes annually. There is no such thing as a stranger in Byram. Everyone greets each other with a smile and polite remarks. I have enjoyed my living experience in Byram, and I am excited to see what the future has in store for my town.
Byram is well diversed, has friendly people, nice community. Byram should have more restaurants, such as iChiban, Logan's and other places like Cane's, Five Guys, that way civilians won't have to take a 15-20 minute drive just get what they want. My neighborhoods/subdivisions, because there seems to be a lot more people in Byram, than what individuals really expect. The city is steadily growing day by day with more people wanting to move here. Safety here is good, Byram PD usually patrol around the neighborhoods, you always see them, which is a good thing. I've always felt pretty safe ever since I moved here.
