I have lived in Liberty all my life. This town is full of friendly people who are willing to stop and have a chat, no matter how busy their day may be. It's quite and family friendly. Underneath all the nice, unfortunately, is where the ugly emerges. For years this town has struggled with a corrupt police force. It has always been like this, but it has grown progressively worse the past few years. It's something that desperately needs work on, but nothing is being done.

I have lived in Liberty all my life and I absolutely love it! Everyone is so friendly and welcoming. It's a small town with a big heart, and I wouldn't want to live anywhere else.
I have lived in Liberty for 10 years of my life and it has had its ups and downs but overall, if it wasn't for my parents moving here I would not be the person I am today. Moving to Liberty helped me grow as a person and I wouldn't trade that for anything. Almost every person you meet is genuinely nice. It's a cute small town with some local shops and restaurants that you won't find anywhere else.
