My years of currently living in Del city is pretty average. Safety is not a problem,the police department are there when you call them and so are the firemen. What I can say is that i do feel safe in my city. The city is very eye pleasing, at least to me, and very peaceful. They're always looking for people who is willing to work for them. I went to Del City high school and I love it there so much, the teachers are hilariously funny on you get to know them, and so are the principals. They're security system is great, concerned about the safety of the students. I am glad to say that I received an amazing education there.

Del City is a wonderful place to live. I have easy access to several different kinds of stores and restaurants, it has easy access to a major highway system, and the neighborhood my husband and I chose is very quiet and peaceful with respectful neighbors and almost non-existent traffic. The only thing I could possibly complain about is my house is only a few blocks away from the fire station so sometime I get woken up by sirens, but you know what they say! "Location, location, location!"
I've grew up in Del City my whole life, there's been change. I can remember early 90's when everyone participated in the holidays. Christmas was the best!
