I have lived here for almost all my life.
The police are not friendly.
The country life is here though, and close to everything else. +++
The taxes are high, and the police force is too large.
They keep adding personnel to the township headquarters AND the residents as always 'foot the bill'.

Police are visible and responsive.
This is an area where the families think "bigger is better" even if they cannot afford it. The people are not at all interested in community.
