One of the most desired measurements of good "Quality of Life" is a safe community, a place where we can move about at will and not feel threatened. This safe feeling can only come about as a result of good enforcement of laws by police and fire personnel.
The evaluation of how good these departments are doing rests with some questions each must answer:
- Do you feel safe in your home?
- Do you feel safe walking or driving the streets, even at night?
My answer is "yes" to these questions. I feel very safe in Payson. The citizens of our town are the judges as to the effectiveness of our safety, not some outside study group.
