The crime and safety in the area I live in is decent. I do feel safe inside my home, but outside is another story. There's been on ongoing crime of stealing wheels off of cars, drivers crashing into buildings, thefts, etc. The visibility of police is not certain until they are called, most of the crime happens in the urban parts of the area. I live in the suburban area. There are not much concerns that I have besides who's really watching the crime and what's being down about it..

The overall experience of the area I live in is okay. The general atmosphere is quiet and there's not much to do. I would live here again if the prices for housing went down. I cannot rank the area I live in any higher to another place in another country. What I see in the future for the area I live is pricey..
I love my community but, many people are moving here causing more traffic making my commute awful.
