Review of St. Petersburg, Florida


Crime Stats are under-recorded.
Star Rating - 3/30/2020
I don't like downgrading any City, but I need to make everyone aware of what this place is Really like. First of all; the Crime Stats are not accurate; the Mayor has given the St. Pete Police Chief marching orders to downgrade the real Stats. I moved here 14 years ago; and NEVER had a single problem, over the last 8 years; I've had to file multiple Restraining Orders to keep the Criminals off my property. Homeless, Vagrants are allowed to ride around your neighborhood, without checks and balances. When you catch someone in a Crime, St. Pete Police looks the other way??? Parks are full of loose Dogs without any repercussion from the City or the Police; we've been charged by loose Dogs at least 5 times in the last 5 years. One of my Neighbors got her small dog attached and killed, and Animal Control didn't do a thing, not a thing. Here it's "look the other way", because if you want the Law to help, you're out of luck.
