Willcox is a nice little town to grow up in. although there isn't much to do here in terms of activities we manage. There are several things I believe would make this town better. I would like to see it grow a little, maybe have some new stores come in. I would also like to see the public school system get better so our students can get a better education. A lot of people are leaving the town due to some of these issues. I believe that if these issues can be solved more people will stay here to raise their families.

I have lived in Willcox most of my life. It's a great small community with a population of about 4000 people. I believe Wilcox needs some improvements, such as roads worked on, community coming together,etc.
I think this area has its crimes like any other place in the world, no one can stop it. But our police officers do an excellent job taking care of business if something happens, they are quick to it and seems to be that their training is amazing. There are no concerns when it comes to this area at all. For teenagers it can be frustrating seeing cops over and over again within a few minutes of driving, but it makes the rest of the community feel safe, they give their best to keep crimes out of the streets and they manage to do an excellent job.
