My old neighborhood, near SF, CA,has been undergoing an amazing crime wave these last few years--I'm so glad not to live there anymore...I feel much better being in my little town far away from the city....
Aside from being told to keep my mouth shut about how I love smaller towns, Im gonna say it anyway: Fact is, no matter what city, the higher the population, the higher the stakes at crime rates. Fact.
I lived in Riverside Calif for several years and watched it too, sadly, change as it grew...and not all for the better. So sad.

You sound like me, lol; I wish my town would grow like that. I dont know if its the economy, or what, but it seems like each time a new business comes in, a year or less later, its out again
