Because Torrance, in my opinion, is one of the safest, most stable areas to live in Southern California, I feel that I must venture off to other areas in order to fully appreciate Torrance's appealing qualities. In order for me to continue morally developing, it is in my best interest to live in an area whose quality of life is poorer than that of Torrance's. Torrance, to me, is an area that is deserving for those who have accomplished their goals in their life. It is a place where they can settle down, relax, and feel confident about the stability of the city. Torrance is essentially one of the best places to live in. Although Torrance is the ideal city for many to live in, I'd rather "earn" the privilege to live here rather than have it handed to me.

Torrance's police department is versatile and very responsive to it's community. Although crime rates are fairly low for Torrance, TPD never lets their guard down by patrolling the roads, tending to those in need of assistance, and maintaining mutual respect between themselves, and the community.
The area is very relaxing and I feel comfortable walking anywhere I go! People are very friendly and welcoming.
