    Crime & Safety at Claremont: I have not felt any sense of unease during the entire time that I have lived in Claremont. Most police interaction occurs at community events where they stroll the street fair and the annual festivals and parades. I see police cars making regular rounds and are visible, but I do not see or sense any local crime.

    Overall Experience at Claremont: Claremont is a great small town with local amenities, movie theater, world class live performances at Bridges Auditorium, great dining, and a very involved community. If I could do it again, I would have moved here sooner.

    Crime & Safety at Claremont: Claremont had its first homicide in seven years a few months ago. In essence, this town is probably one of the safest towns in the country. The Police Department are usually on top of things (should anything occur). I have been here for only 11 months and I have not seen anything suspicious.

    Overall Experience at Claremont: I love Claremont as a town overall. Being from a large city (Newark, NJ) and it adjacency to Manhattan, New York makes the adjustment to Claremont pretty difficult. However, the town is gorgeous in terms of its look (lots of trees). It is very family-oriented and has a lot of individuals with Ph.Ds (due to the Claremont Colleges). Great weather, lots of trails, and a bustling central downtown area provides the small-town feel that attracts many young college students and older individuals in the twilight of their respective careers. Everyone, in essence, says Claremont is an extremely nice town to live in.
