    Crime & Safety at Turlock: For the most part, the police are reliable, but I have not had much experience with them. Crime is fairly low, concentrated in a only a few areas. Some public roads and sidewalks could use better maintenance, particularly near downtown.

    Overall Experience at Turlock: Not a lot to do. Generally quiet. Relaxed atmosphere. I do not think I would rather grow up in a different area. I could see myself returning here after college.
