    Crime in this area is very bad. It is not safe to walk around at night, and there has been a few police officers shot and killed in the area. burglary and larceny has increased 400% from 10 years ago (source local police data) the city has been laying off police officers and they olny have 5 police cars out at anyone time, for the whole city.

    housing in the area varies by location, some areas are much older but well maintained homes and the newer homes are all in relatively good condition. abandoned or vacant homes exist but are mostly located in the downtown area or near downtown. housing is pretty cheap, but you get what you pay for. utilities are ok, but if you aren't careful they can become overwhelming. the best and worst places to live are as follows (best-worst) South side, West side & East side tie, and North side.

    the fire department always comes fast but police can take up to 4 hours to show up. (when i took a ride along with a police officer he had close to 800 unanswered calls for service. public services and starting to get better, but have been bad for the past few years. the local laws are not enforced, but it is very bias. most of the time laws are only followed if the gov't could be liable for damages or stuff like that.
