I live in a small town of about 10,000 people. The best part is that it is a small town most everyone knows everyone. Some things that could be better in my town are safety, and jobs. We have a small police department however my town is close to the freeway and their are always some high speed chase, someone trying to commit some sort of violent crime. We used to have a strip mall as the years go on it grows emptier and emptier. across the street we have a Walmart Super Center and small strip mall. At one point our town was bombing.

I love this area. I have lived here all my life, have traveled to other places, but I will always live here. It is a relaxed area with a smaller town feel. There is many rural areas close by to spend time at. I see this place growing a little bit but mostly staying the same. I have noticed more people moving here lately. It is a great place to raise a family and have a career.

There's not a lot of crime that goes on. The safety in this neighborhood is good in my opinion. Its not bad at all. The cop are everywhere but when you call them they don't always show up when you need them. They might take a minute, and it shouldn't because Anderson is very small. But they will show up sooner than later.
