I have lived her for over 12 years and I do not know anyone that has had a problem with crime. The crime rate in our area is minimal. Yes there are pockets of meth users and domestic violence, or so i hear but have never seen. Perhaps an occasional break in of a vacant house but the perpetrators are caught quickly because it is the kind of place that neighbors watch out for each other and most households are gun owners and know how to protect themselves. Be aware that many of the stats on websites will be wrong because they take the crime over the whole county and base it on the town population.
