Never said there's no crime in Senoia. I said there's little crime. My wallet was stolen in Atlanta before.. Aren't you supposed to be helpful? All I am asking, which part of Atlanta hires most technician's in the state?

I see Atlanta sadly in your location. Now, you call me naive when all I am doing is asking about Atlanta.

I've lived all around the metro aera, in Smyrna (my worst experience) Hampton, and now in Senoia. I was then thinking of asking, is it safe to visit Atlanta? Are the Schools good, I am thinking about getting a job as a Technician. Senoia is rual, and has nothing to offer but peace of mind and safety. But Atlanta has jobs to offer, so my question is, is Atlanta safe for a college graduate to work. Is it safe to visit, and is it still safe to live around it? Also, is Griffin, Georgia a nice place to live?
Well, first off, welcome to the boards KingJohn.

Just like anywhere else, just do your research before you move. I know that is what you attempting to do here, but you can't ask a blanket statement like, "Is Atlanta safe?" Taken as a whole, of course it is. There are certain areas I and many people would avoid. Figure out a general area where you want to work or live, then do the research. East Atlanta going to be different than Buckhead. College Park will be different than Midtown. Inman Park will be different than West End. You need to be much much more specific.

Once you have done some research on a specific area, I'm sure someone on the board will be happy to answer your question. Just make sure to search through the forum to make sure it hasn't been asked already.

Don't be offended by the jokes. Your question had significant comedic value.

To be honest crime happens everywhere and anywhere. I moved to an intown neighborhood 1.5 years ago. I live on a main road, got an alarm system, and a dog for the back yard. Haven't had any problems and I even walk home from the MARTA station late at night, through Edgewood. I grew up in a big city and learned as a child to be aware of my surroundings. That is the #1 thing about living in a big city is to be aware of your surroundings and know where to go if something happened or where someone would jump you. Another big thing, don't be walking around with your smartphone or any other electronic advertising what you have.

To answer the question, statistically crime is down in Atlanta. 15-20 years ago it was like 2nd worst crime rate in the country. Now it's 37th. You won't get mass murdered but you might get your TV stolen. I moved to East Atlanta Village in June and my stuff was stolen by August.

Yes, I know crime happens everywhere. Which is why home security is important when living in any Urban city. Now that I know the parts of Atlanta to avoid, I can search for more opprotunites in the OK parts.
