Paris is a very nice and good country town to retire. It has been certified by the State of Texas as a retirement community. A blog is just that, people blogging their opinions. To know more about the crime rate of Paris do an internet search for the Paris city police site. Another good site is the Lamar County and Paris Chamber of Commerce.
If you are truly looking for a retirement home to buy and move to the Paris area, let me know and I will connect you with a local realtor.
Many people are retiring to Paris area, North East Texas, and loving it. They are moving not only from other parts of Texas but also from other states all over the US.
Again, this Paris blog is usually sensationalizing what little happens here.

It is without a doubt an unusual town that has no or very little crime. There have been some horrific murders in this area, however the police & sheriff departments are extremely competent in solving these crimes. That said, there are far more extensive crimes in larger suburban areas, as compared to the Paris, Tx Lamar County area.
There are quite a few theft cases here : just be sure to take whatever precautions necessary to protect your family & home.
As with anywhere, you could be a victim of crime, or you could live forever in an idyllic view of ignorant bliss. You take your chances no matter where you live & work. Be smart, be observant, be careful.
Just my thoughts.

I moved to Paris from South Arlington in 06 and my family and I love it here. Nice quite country atmosphere and I have met some of the nicest people here. Give us a try and I bet you will love it too.
Speaking of crimes, there's going to be your usual thiefs and burglaries but no where close to what goes on in the metroplex.

If you like ignorant rednecks, old people that cant drive, young white people acting like blacks, white girls sleeping with blacks,a raging meth trade and use, nice neighborhoods ruined by trash moving in and robbing you blind, then not being able to sell your house and leave because the property value crashed because of the crime, mouthy black punks, even dumber white trash, women that cant keep their mouths closed and think they need to gossip and pass along known lies, a place that has almost nothing to do for children, so they usually turn to drugs, a very high teenage pregnancy percentage, very crooked politics, large amount of welfare housing, above average amount of infidelity, middle class people believing they are upper class and think they are above everyone and all laws, racist black people that are extremely annoying, lots of over weight lazy people, snobby old ladies that think they are better than everyone, very low IQ for majority of the city population(but they dont realize it, which makes it kind of sad), low paying jobs, bad resturants, banks that charge extremely high interest on housing loans when the rest of the country is 2 points lower, well maybe not 2 points, but close, and thats with a 800+ cresit rating, doctors that treat you poorly and charge you more, and constantly bitch about how they dont make enough while giving you third world treatments, understaffed police department, a junior college that is a joke at best, rednecks in diesel pickups that like to hit the gas and black smoke the roads because they are so retarded they think its cool to show that their truck is capable of smoking, i know I have already mentioned bad drivers, but they are really really bad, needs to get mentioned again, companies that are closing or cutting staff and just an overall unfriendly atmosphere because people in this town are so unhappy. I say please move to Paris, these people really want to bring your happiness level down to zero.

You better run, and I mean run as far away from this dumpster fire as you can. Paris is the toilet of Texas. I cannot believe anyone would purposely move to this town. The other people that live here are not going to tell you the truth, so I say come for a visit for a few days and then you can see for yourself that what I said is 100% accurate.

Paris Texas is a racist hellhole. Google Paris Texas racism and get an eye full. Yes they have plenty of police officers. But since they sit posted at Dairy Queen, Lamar County fairgrounds, Leon Williams Park, behind the tree near the golf place on MLK and other spots in black neighborhoods, unless you go to a black neighborhood, you get the illusion there arent any officers. If you need police assistance, you'll get a quicker response if you call Wards or Dairy Queen.

Just stay away from the West side of Paris and your fine. Not much going on there either, every now and then some chick shows up out of Ft. Worth with 3 or 4 other racist and form a parade down at the square.........the dude with the bullhorn is quite entertaining, except when he picks on white children on parade floats. Stay over on the East/Northeast side and it's a really nice place.
unhappy too

GW homes are in West Paris. That horrible looking Westgate apt is in West Paris and other run down eye sores. Oh poor white children on a float being picked on by a man with a bullhorn. What kind of white men do you have in Paris if you stand and watch such horror without protecting your children? What did you do when you claim you saw one man was attacking white children while thousands of white adults stood watching? What kind of police do you have? Why didn't you stop it?

Yeah, like I said just stay away from the West side, it's not bad just the people over on that side choose to live that way. The East side is growing and there are several very nice sub-divisions on the East side. For the size of Paris there a plenty of nice areas on the East/Northeast side. There is no need to go west of the downtown area as there is no shopping or services over there.
That goofy dude with the bullhorn and his crazy chick leader only show up a couple of times each year, just a lot of hot air anyway......so don't let that put you off about the town....Paris is a great little place to retire in.

There are 2 blogs you need to read "Why I Hate Paris" and "Why I Love Paris" There are 2 entries on "Why I Love Paris."

Another murder occurred last Thursday morning on Clarksville, across the street from Kroger. The newspaper has only reported that a person was shot and the shooter (not named) was never even taken into police custody, pending further investigation.

We retired to Paris in 2001 and left in 2006. Believe me, Paris needs your money, but you don't need Paris.

Been there, done that.

If you want a view of the local mentality, just look how your questions were rated by other readers.

You can get a nice home in Paris at a lower price than you are accustomed to, but the property taxes are extremely high.
