No town is perfect. Even if there was, something is bound to happen sooner or later. My hometown has never had very many issues with break-ins and it has never had any issues with burglary to my knowledge. I truly feel safe at night whether is sitting out side enjoying a campfire or having a late night walk. Police patrol day and night so i have nothing to worry about. If anything, our biggest concern would be high school students car painting or toilet papering each other.
There is no town in America like Minster, Ohio. With only a population of 3,000, everyone is family. Minster is simply a small town filled with big hearts. There has never been a time I have not felt safe, or a time where I felt this wasn't where I belong. I know that no matter where my future takes me, I will always come home to this town.
