One of the most important aspects that go into creating a sense of community between a group of people is safety. Creating a space that seems welcoming and safe are high priorities for many people. According to a survey conducted by city-data.com more than 50 percent of people would only live in a place with good safety and low crime rates. While this is a general want for most people it can prove quite difficult to actually accomplish. As an example of this, Lansing is a city that claims to have a hard-working heart with the charm of a small town, according to the city’s visitors page.
