I live in an area where the state's police headquarters is located. There are about six police district units in this small area. Security level is high, and safety is okay; though, crime is something that always has room for improvement.

The area where I live is not as progressive as I would like it to be. This area seems to attract older people (55+) and retirees. I am considering moving to an area that's more lively and has a younger population.
I like living in a suburban area. The bus route is great. It allows me to travel the places I need.
