The crime safety is almost too good. The police departments are huge. Chattanooga has twice the population of Franklin, but Franklin has more police officers! This is partly because Williamson County is the 13th wealthiest county in the entire nation. The sweet southern town has a good heart, but is a bit too strict. Don't speed or you will get a ticket, don't be driving around at 2 am or you will be pulled over and a suspect of DUI. This strict authority is necessary for keeping the streets as clean as they are.

I like Williamson County because the public schooling still gives students a good education. But, Williamson County has little to no diversity, and the kids are very sheltered from the real world.
This community is a great one! I have moved 7 times in the past 18 years and this community definitely makes feel at home. This area is also very friendly. When I moved here I was well greeted and met friends very easily, which I am definitely grateful for!
