Southern Hills Reviews

Due to high drug and substance abuse in this area, many people act inappropriately towards others especially women. During times of chaos, police would be quite visible but only for a short period of time before they leave and things are back to they were before they arrive.

I would not chose to live here again due to the severe lack of employment opportunities and high drug usage.
