The crime rate isn't super high but it isn't super low. The police are usually around during the day when there is no crimes occurring but at night when it is occurring they are not really around.
The housing is great the property is well taken care of by maintenance men they mow the lawns and plant flowers during spring and summer and then during the winter they plow and shovel the stairs and pathways for us so I love that about this place.
