There are surprisingly a lot of police in this town. Depending on the person, it is good or bad. In my eyes, it's a great thing! Help is always around the corner. There aren't a lot of disturbances in Galva. However, they do happen on occasion. With the exception of a few like every town, everyone is nice and peaceful.

Our town is very nice and small. Everyone is friendly and everyone knows everybody. We are tight knit, but we are very friendly to new comers. We have a great small environment everyone seeking the quiet country wants and we're conveniently near a supermarket in a neighboring town. Being in a small town/community, there isn't a whole lot to do. There are nice public parks and vintage buildings, but that's it. In my opinion, I see Galva standing out as one of those small communities that will thrive. A lot of success comes from Galva and we have proven we don't need any help. Even with Illinois's budget crisis, we still intend on keeping our school and local businesses. We're here to stay. Nothing will change Galva.
