    On a scale of 1-10 I would rate Cambridge a 4. It's a small town so there is definitely a big problem with rumors and drama. However, I love the scenery. I love looking out my window and seeing nothing but mountains. Although I probably would not choose this town for raising a family and spending the rest of my life in, but it is a good temporary place.

    Just to put a long answer short, the police in this area are pretty good. I can't complain at all. They are on top of things and they are there when you need them.
