In my area there is no crime really. Everyone is nice and there is a sense of trust and safety. However, when there is an issue, responders are very slow to get there, most likely due to location however.
I like how close knit everyone is a great place to live. I also like how I can count on people to come together to help me when I need it. I would definitely come living here.
