San Joaquin County is fairly nice, however the amount of violence that occurs in some cities within is frightening. What I wish could change would be the amount of violence. Also the homeless problem. Hopefully we will be able to open up homeless shelters in the future to help these people and give them a chance they may never had before. As for the violence, stop these problems in earlier stages before they escalate.

The town is very dirty. The first thing I noticed when I moved here 2 years ago, was all the littering on the side of the roads, outside the gate of my neighborhood, and more. There are a lot of shootings.
I have lived in San Joaquin County my whole life, and over the years I have seen it change, at times it’s good change and then not so good. But I love it here because the area is beautiful.
