It was a great place for me to grow up as a child because of the low crime rates and overall safety of the are. It is a very close knit community where almost everyone knows each other. Crime has been increasing due to more drug use in the area but I believe it is being handled in a proactive manner. I am going to be going to college about 45 hours away from here and it is much like where I currently live. After college, I would consider finding a place to live around here because I do think it is a good place to raise children, it has quality education, and is in close proximity to my parents and where I grew up.

Crime has never been an issue around where I live but has been on the rise along with the use of drugs. This is still a very safe and close knit community. The police force has been more increased because of newly hired officers. There is also a police officer in each of the schools in the district. This is to try to combat the drug use at a younger age in hopes to lower the crime rate as the kids grow older and graduate.
I feel like most people see police as they are only out to get you l. So instead of feeling safe when you drive by a cop your afraid.
