Safety

Nestled between the majestic Adirondack Mountains and the St. Lawrence River, about 70 miles from urban Syracuse, Drum Country is uniquely renowned for its public place, volunteerism, and an engaged, caring community. Public safety is important to us—you’ll see that reflected in violent crime rates that are half of the US average.
