    The schools are great in this area. Most people are friendly. The roads are terrible, work is being done but the construction on what is being done makes no sense. People of dying is high here, a lot of car accidents, and shootings downtown. There are always stray cats and the town is pet and family friendly to the community.

    Growing up here was filled with many life lessons and experiences. I would never want to start a family here, Jackson is not where I want to live when I get older. Im glad I am even getting out of Michigan for college. The atmosphere here is alright. Jackson is a pretty big area, but I feel like there is not enough going on. There is a lot of crime and I do not want to be around that as I get older. I would like to live in a safer area.

    There is a ton of crime in jackson, but jackson has some of the biggest prisons in the state of Michigan. I feel like our police do a very good job about the crimes that go on. There are a lot of drug dealing and gangs here in jackson.
