There isn't much police presence on the streets, so I would say that is concerning, but overall there is not much crime in the area. My biggest concern regarding crime is that our town tends to keep things quiet and not notify and inform citizens when crime does occur.

I have lived near here my entire life, so it is really all that I know. The main street needs a lot of help, but efforts are being made to open new stores and clean it up again. This town is a wonderful place for community and the schools are a very big part of that.
Mostly unskilled jobs are available in the direct area, but many people commute into Philadelphia for work.
