There are nice people and friendly people here. But, there are more "depressed" residents, mentally ill and sexual predators located here than anywhere else I have ever lived.
Where I currently live, it is pretty safe here because the police station is right down the street from us. Crime is low here in the downtown area however when you branch out further into the surrounding neighborhoods, crime picks up a little more.
