POLL: Do You Feel Safe in the North Druid Hills-Briarcliff Community?
A poll looking at safety in our community.
Admittedly, this is a very general question, and there are very different parts, socioeconomically and otherwise, to the North Druid Hills-Briarcliff area. But the way I see it, if everyone just answers this poll question based on how they feel about where they are, the results would be worth looking at.
Before North Druid Hills-Briarcliff Patch, no one was really writing about crime in this area. Because it's just a large swath of unincorporated DeKalb County, which is not easy to cover, our community is a bit of a media dead zone. So, there's been a lot more crime writing recently. I don't have crime numbers for our area yet, but I wonder if crime's going up. If I was to guess, I would guess it was going down, along with crime in other areas across the county. But who knows.
