It is home to San Antonio's wealthy. One of the nicest and safest communities in south Texas, but also very expensive. If you drive through the cops will pull you over if you speed.

Olmos Park is a beautiful city-within-a-city with a Eurocentric feel. There are several parks in the Olmos area, and with the prominence of boutique-style shops on the busier streets, a visitor gets a village-like experience.
Olmos Park submits untruthful crime data to the FBI database which happens to be voluntary. So while most other municipalities voluntarily submit true and correct data Olmos Park does not. Why? So that it will rank as high as possible. I discovered this when the news ran an article showing which neighborhoods ranked as the safest in the FBI report. The FBI clearly stated that the information was asked for on a voluntary basis. Olmos Park claimed 0 violent attacks and I know of two during that very same timeframe. So here is another report here placing OP as one of the most crime free places to live. Oh, and the police department works very hard to intimidate those who do call about criminal activity...here is a direct quote: “...the NEXT time we have to come out here, SOMEONE is getting arrested!”
Heard that on more that two occasions with my very own ears.
