Working in Prineville
I overall enjoy Prineville, Oregon. I went to middle school and graduated high school in 2016. I never realized all the issues in the town until I graduated school. I wish the drugs weren't an issue there, but just like other small towns it is always going to be a thing. Drugs is one of the issues there, kids start very young with just trying things and than leads to addiction. Overall Prineville is a great place but has little rough spots like anywhere else would.
Prineville is a wonderful town located just close enough to large cities for shopping convenience, yet still have that special small town feel.
It's a small town, but it's peaceful, quiet, and not much crime. I can go out and take walks by myself without fear of anything happening to me. We're nestled in a canyon where we have great views of the surrounding mountains.
