    I have been living in Arvin, California my entire existence. This city is my hometown and I love my hometown. But there is some disadvantages of living in this small town. First, and most importantly is air quality. This city is well known for having the worst air pollution in California. Hence, this will/ can cause illnesses in its residents. Secondly, is job opportunities. This small town mostly consists of small markets. These small markets can only employ a small amount of individuals. Therefore, this might be one of the biggest reason of unemployment and crime rate here. This city is full of amazing people, this city and its residents deserve more.

    The sense of safety in this area is quite good because I believe that all the people sleep well at night knowing that they have the police doing what they are suppose to do which is keeping the town safe. Crimes where I live are not common but little things might happen here and there. The visibility of the police is quite good because they at end of the day they get their job done and the town is safe and stays safe.
