I moved to King of Prussia when I was 10 and am currently 17. As the city develops into a busy, overpopulated money machine, I've realized several things. King of Prussia has always been incredibly safe. The illegal activity is so low that the cops do nothing. The diversity is terrible and this probably contributes to the cop activity but this also makes the city boring. There is nothing to do here and it has a very negative effect on the kids. You either do sports or nothing with your time. This means the kids have a lot of time to spend on the internet, inside, losing social skills.
If you live alone and quietly, this city is terrific, at least currently, if you have kids, maybe try to find somewhere with more things for them to do or get them into sports.

Overall, King Of Prussia is a great place to live with tons of things to do thanks to the endless variety of shopping and restaurants. The area is pretty safe with minimal crime and good schools, making it perfect for families. And the reasonable home prices paired with the convenient location, vast array of nearby employers, and quality school system makes this a great place for young families.
I love the fact that the KOP mall and the towncenter are in our suburb. There is always something to do here, such as ample restaurants, and activities to do in the day and night. However, because of the new developments there is a lot of traffic around these areas. I would love to see the traffic being regulated better, especially during the height of rush hour.
