I feel that the area I live in is nice, however there are some surrounding areas that are a little bit unsafe. But that's true for any place that people live. I live in the suburbs of Providence and it has a very peaceful atmosphere to it. There's a high school near by, kids playing outside, people exercising, and people walking their dogs. The downtown area Providence is very lively. There's a mall, plenty of restaurants, as well as activities for the public to take part in, such as Water Fire and parades. In comparison to other places in the United States, I believe that Providence is one of a kind.

The area that I live doesn't have a high crime, however that does not mean that it doesn't happen as often as I think. Definitely in the surrounding areas that are just down the road there are some crime issues that are prevalent in the community.
Crime has spiked over the years, not necessarily in my area, but the law enforcement have taken experiences elsewhere into account and have increased units and patrols.
