My family and I may be moving to Chickasha in the very near future. I've lived most of my life in TN, so I'm not at all familiar with OK in general, and Chickasha specifically. I was hoping that I could get some honest input from those that live there about the area. Thanks

i'll be honest with you, this is not a good idea. financially, it might seem beneficial, but you're trading cheap living for a very unsafe place to raise your kids. low standards in education, a shady police dept., corrupt politicians, etc. is what you will be dealing with in chickasha. i recommend finding another town. i'm speaking from experience when i say if you don't want to live in fear of your neighbors, go somewhere else.

Really? It's that bad? My husband will be working in Lawton. Are there other areas near there that you would recommend me looking in to?

This guy is a joker lived in the area all my life have 3 kids of my own 1 is a teenager, this is a great place to raise kids. Unless your a convict,little shady or have some thing to hide the cops are ok.. Elgin, Cyril, or Fletcher OK would be 15 to 20 min. away from Lawton, small towns great people...

MrsMcCoy is right....not a nice place to live....I have been here 11 years and wish I could move...and No, dr hunter, I am not a convict, trying to hide anything or am I shady...I used to work at the Chickasha Law Enforcement Center and have seen personally the wheeling and dealing going on in the back rooms....Chickasha is called "Shady Grady" and Greedy Grady" for a reason.....But, dr hunter is right when he says there are nicer places a lot closer to Lawton...The majority of people in Chickasha are really super people, just nice folks helping each other and trying to make an honest living....

no, dr hunter, i'mnot a joker. nor am i a con, shady, nor do i have anything to hide. i'm simply telling it like i've experienced it. just because you haven't had any trouble doesn't mean others haven't. but i will say that you do have a good point with the other towns. it's not like the whole of oklahoma is a ghetto.

CDH - If you had really worked for the "Chickasha Law Enforcement Center" you would know that the name is Grady County Law Enforcement Center. You would also know that pion employees don't make it to closed backdoor meetings. There is nothing going on behind closed doors in Grady County that doesn't happen in every other county in the U.S.

Im going to have agree with Dr Hunter here. Im from Chichasha born there went to school there and never had an issue. I now live in Lawton due to marrying an Army guy and HATE it here.

Its way more ghetto than chickasha. Chickasha is a great town to raise kids. Any body that gets caught up in 'shady' things put themselves there to begin with. All towns have corruption.

Chickasha is a few short miles from OKC and Norman. If I could move back there I would in a heart beat.

lets put it this way: (and mind you i'm speaking from experience) the smaller the town the better the place to raise your children.

I was raised all my life in Chickasha. It ain't a bad town at all. Good place to live and raise kids. Very nice people. I don't know what the other negative kooks are talking about.

Lived in Chickasha for 5 years. You couldn't pay me to go back. Shady crooked cops, unfriendly people. Only positive thing is Walmart.

Plus former Chickasha teacher Melissa Periman slept with the cops and the Grady County DA and had her charges dropped.

I wish I would have known all this before I retired here. Everyone calls this place "shady grady" and I been arrested wrongly, they wouldn't reopen the case, no home insurance because USAA will not honor our policy so we lived in a tent, now a run down, falling apart small FEMA trailer and its been over a year, in 100%disabled retired vet of 22 years, 4 combat tours and they had the nerve to broadcast that I was guilty of burning down my house on 105.5, the local station, and not only did theyknow I did they said they knew why, "so my wife and kids woyldnt get it" yes, now my character and name is mud. So much so that I don't even want to be that person anymore, always sad, depressed, mad, angry, confused! They took everything from us, and oh yeah the woman who I didn't want to get our retirement place, THEY ARRESTED HER ALSO! Check out thevideo i made:

Not true, I am 100 % innocent. Retired in 2013, arrested in 2015, never been in jail, retired army after22 years, they give deferred sentences to career criminals or simply drop the charges, after one year they are still wanting to put me in prison for 25 years, for my first offense? Wtf, I can prove Im innocent and have two videos showing their documents and proving what I say, but here we are, in hell still, they even arrested my wife for, get this, harboring a fugitive! We been destroyed and no citizen will help rally the public and force them to stop so I also blame Oklahoma citizens. People say " oh you can't blame the citizens". Yes I can, you know why? Cause I started studying the laws and do you even know what the very first line says?? Something like, We, THE PEOPLE, of the state of oklahoma....... Yay, our lives are over they took everything. Oh, I will agree tho, Lawton is worse but only for the gangs, crime and proximity to Fort Sill. I loved it here in the country but I am in rush springs not chickasha and live out in the sticks, its quiet and good for my PTSD. SHADY GRADY, wish I would have known then what I know now.
