Minier Reviews

There's not a whole lot of crime in this area, but when there is, it just tends to kind of run rampant. I feel like the police are around a lot and should be able to catch the people responsible, but it's like their kind of there more for show than anything else. Of course, this also depends on the officer as well, because I've had very helpful officers assist me with things and other officers who it seemed that they didn't do a single thing to help the situation I was having.

There's a very comfortable, friendly atmosphere in this community, and I really enjoy it. The only thing I don't like is how much gas it takes to get to Bloomington or Peoria.
