VERY low crime rate in this area. A home theft might occur every so often, but rarely enough that the whole town knows exactly what happened when something does happen.

Id probably do it all over again, not a ton to do, but everyone will say that about their town. The school systems are exemplary and most residents are very involved in the community.
There is rarely any violent crime, the crimes around here consist of breach of peace or petty theft. Pretty quiet around here for the most part.
