This area is pretty safe, although, there is a few crimes with drugs being brought into this town. The police are seen everywhere, which is a good thing for certain occasions , but sometimes they are a little too intrusive.
This area is progressing but its small and everyone knows everyone. There is not much for kids and teenagers to do here but its a good place for parents to raise their children. I personally would not want to come back and live here to create a family but maybe I would come back when I'm old and retired so I can die in my hometown where I was born.
