Scott Johnsonm Chief Pilice, was my teacher of Public Administration at Hmaline University, he knows his job. He worked for the FBI. It was one of the best clases I had. This is in 2001.
As for crime free, I don't know if there is such a thing. Very low crime, yes. And that is something you should check yourself by calling the local police department.
I always recommend visiting the area at different times of the day to become familar with the neighborhood.
Good luck. I think you would like it there. But again, a personal opinion based on my own experience.
Here you will find more information than you will know what to do with. From average house values, average incomes, crime statistics. Hope this helps, enjoy your Memorial Day weekend.
