I just moved here a couple of weeks ago from Washington. I also lived in Southern California. Just yesterday my husband and I were talking to a member of the Tulsa Police department about Tulsa and the issue of crime, etc. He assured me that there is crime in parts of Tulsa just like any other city but the Broken Arrow area (where we chose to live) is one of the safer areas to live in the country. He also said that Owasso, Jenks, Bixby and the small suburbs just outside of town are safe as well.

Trust me... if you are coming from San Bernadino you will like it here. I couldn't wait to move away from Southern Cal and I have never regretted it or turned back. One of my best friends still lives there and I hear the horror stories on a daily basis. Although this area is not perfect I believe it is soooo much better than where you are coming from. And it is affordable!!!

Enjoy the Tulsa area and listen to these amazing people on this forum. They know Tulsa and will not stear you wrong. They helped me through my entire move and were right about everything that I asked. Enjoy and welcome to Tulsa...

And Tulsa was rated higher than the national average in a number of catagories. CAn someone explain what this is all about??
