There has been no crimes in our neighborhood since we moved in. Occasionally see highway patrol on the highway near our neighborhood. Our neighborhood is in very rural area so it would take the sheriff dept several minutes to get to our home if they were needed.

My mom picked this area because it was in my school district and we both liked the house. The lots in the neighborhood are big and our front yard has lots of trees. Quiet neighborhood. Close to major roads. Easy access to Hwy 220 and I85.
The area I live in is one of the best in the world. It is safe and convenient, but also interesting.
