For this area I see a lot of growth and improvement in many areas. A few areas I would say need improvement are government assistance, stricter laws against crime, and school graduation rates.
My concerns are definately around all crimes that occur in my area. (Car theft, shootings, stabbings, theft etc) I think the area I live is not ideal and not very safe. The street I live on has seen a lot of crime and the time it takes police to respond is sometimes concerning.
