raise taxes to help pay for hiring new officers and give better resources. (A.F., personal communication, April 11th, 2018) 2.

There are many kids who were sent home due to missing vaccinations (J.W., personal communication, April 12 th , 2018). ˃ Community’s Safety issues J.W states that her biggest concern of safety is speeding on the road in front of school.

Remember to cite personal communication as appropriate : After reviewing the windshield survey and interviews from people in the community, a lot of very useful data was collected and observed about this community. My observations about this community show that it is a relatively safe environment at least where I was. The members are fairly culturally diverse and the services and resources offered within the community cater to this diversity. I would say that this is a very pleasant community to live in. It is close to an ample amount of various amenities and shopping centers. Most importantly there are three hospitals, dozens of clinics and urgent cares that are available in case of emergency.
