In the town of Berwick, crime is not much of an issue but drugs are. There are numerous amounts of houses that have caught on fire caused from meth labs and drug dealers. There is a high rate of drug users in this area. I see someone everyday at my job that comes in high off of some type of drug. Violence is not a problem as much as drug use in this town.

There is a good sense of community in the area for me personally because I originally come from a humble place. With that being said, without the right direction the company you meet here can influence a person down the wrong path.

Berwick is a nice town, however the school isn't very involved with the individual succeeding with their education. Bullying is a very severe issue in this town among the school aged kids and nothing is ever done about it. There is not a lot to do around town in order to get troublemakers off the street and inside having fun. However most of the people and establishments are nice.
