  1. Way to go Maplewood. They have a very good Police Dept . I have no fear shopping, or dining in Maplewood. There is bad everywhere. You have two choices, stay at home and hide in your basement or go shopping , out to dinner and enjoy your great city . Don’t let a few bad things keep you from your city , parks, stores and restaurants. Maplewood is a very safe city. See you on Manchester!

  2. The news does seem scary.However, I think Maplewood is the safest it has ever been in the 40 years that I have lived here. Please do not get scared.

  3. All these armed robberies taking place is going to drastically decrease the value of homes in Maplewood. I moved to what I thought was a relatively safe area. However, more armed robberies have happened in the span of a month in this town and I moved from the city! More police patrols during the night is needed. Sure glad my taxes are being used for things like new technology for government employees and not the things that matter…

    • Thousand Oaks, California — where 12 were gunned down at a bar — was ranked the 3rd safest city in America this year. Happened yesterday !!!
