Is crime an issue in Novato?

Asked by Halley S., New York, NY Mon Apr 23, 2007

How safe is it or does it feel to walk around? And, is this the case across the city, or are there differences in different areas?

Novato is famous for it's small town feel and low crime rate. Although Novato officially has a population of over 50,000, but because of the appeal of different areas (such as San Marin, Country Club, Pacheco Valley, Pleasant Valley, Hamilton, Indian Valley, ..,etc); each area has it's own concentration of residents. This is a family-oriented town and it always seems to me that I know almost everybody in town.Kids feel safe to go from one place to the other and they enjoy a lot of outdoor activities from soccer, to swimming, to horseback riding, to tennis, to baseball, .., etc. This is a wonderful and safe town for kids and families.

We have lived in Novato for 40 years. Its been a wonderful city to raise children in. Planty of of policeman and fireman live here and the various areas of the city . They are all vigilant of strangers and suspicous activity . We also have a concientious involved police force and very fine schools . Our climate is difficult to beat or duplicated . Its hard to be a bad person in Pleasantville Novato.. Of course thats if the crappy city counncil would resign and let qualified young people make sensible decisions like leaving the city .....small town and growth smart ..........nothing is perfect is it? :))))
