Hi!
Our family is considering moving to Hampton, VA (from small-town, SW-VA). A job at Fort Monroe is the reason for the move. Could you please advise me on:
*Best neighborhoods to live in
*Best school syste
*Crime rate?
Any and all input will be appreciated. Everything is pretty much new to me. Please help.
Thanks!
I can't believe this would be open for discussion. Hampton is one of the most dangerous cities in Virginia. The Courts here are soft. If you want a future police blog, just purchase the high school yearbooks.eom

Rebecca, I hope you haven't moved yet. Please post. You said,'He has to work @ Fort Monroe" Why?
tHIS IS YOUR DAILY ROUTE TO WORK THEN;IE YOU WILL LEAVE>>Pembroke, watch out for car jackers, cross over to Rip Rap rd from Shell & Bell if you get traffic, pass black Macs, hit Mercury blv, follow to King st, pass several pawn shops, tattoo shops, and 12 quicke mkts, get over to slow lane as there is radar at 15 corners...forgot, there is a black man that dances on w. Mercury near Cracker Barrell, watchout...dont call 911, he hasnt broken any laws, just jumps in front of cars and throw empty cans. Finally, after you pass social services, you are only 1 hr from Mellen st, follow to FT Monroe. Also, watchout for the man at Mellen, he is about 76 yrd old and still thinks the Lee XXX Adult is still there. Pass him and head towards the water.

Hampton Circuit judges are very soft on crime. Revolving door; most know the judges by 1st and last name by arrest no. 10.
Sentences are concurrent when many should be consecutively. Also, there are 1000s of outstanding warrants in Hampton, many I agree are FTA on a misdo, but some are violent warrants.
