Lived here for over ten years and have always felt comfort while in Abington. A friendly and diverse neighborhood and also has the best of both worlds as far as little local shops or go to the Willow Grove mall and shop! Also has great schools! If community is important to you then choose Abington!

I feel completely safe and secure in my neighborhood. I am totally comfortable venturing around my neighborhood alone at all hours of the day/night and feel protected at all times. Minimal crimes have occurred near me and most of the residents who live in my neighborhood are friendly, law-abiding citizens who are respectful of the property of others. The police are efficient and quickly responsive if their services are ever needed. Police cars frequently visit my neighborhood and are spotted a couple times a week.

The Police are always available, and respond rather quickly to any incident, no matter the circumstances. If there is an automobile accident, they arrive within a few minutes of the call to keep things moving, as they are always posted at different locations. They are a visible presence, which is probably why the crime rate is quite low. I personally have no concerns, but seeing as there will always be crime, I'm thankful to have such an effective police force.
