Why is crime so bad in Quinlan. In the last 4 months it has been record numbers of houses/buildings being broken into. I have been hit 2 times in this time frame and the police know who the thivies are. Am I the only one in this town fighting MAD?

I am amazed at the crime in this area. I have a police scanner and it is unbelievable. On Friday and Saturday and also Sunday nights, I do not know how the sheriff dept. keeps up with all the calls.

The break in's has me greatly concerned too.

I am going outside the police dept now with private help because I know they can't cover the area. I just hope the sheriff can add additional staff soon, very soon. It's BAD.

All I hear about Quinlan when I mention it is that it is a crackhead haven. This is from people I know, who grew up there and still have relatives living there. I really like the area too so much for moving there. I hear they are cracking down on gambling rooms, how about cracking down on the crackheads.

The Lake Tawakoni area has always had the reputation for drugs. Nothing has changed in that area.

However, you will find the most wonderful people that live in the area. Nor everyone in Quinlan is a crack head. I do understand your concern though.

Quinlan does have the most wonderful people. I grew up in the city as a child and we have had a weekend place in the area for years. I plan on moving to Quinlan when I retire. Something has to be done to run the drugs out of the area. I heard Quinlan may be cutting back on the police force so outside help might be needed to protect your place.

I've been in the Quinlan area for 1 1/2 years, and have never had issues with any locals, and never had anything stolen from my house. Most are friendly, country people. And, for someone in Terrell to badmouth Quinlan is quite the laugh.

Terrell has ten times the crime rate that Quinlan has, gangs, home invasions,business and home burglaries, gang grafitti sprayed all over town on building, a huge problem with crack cocaine and marijuana abuse right now.

It's so bad in Terrell, 12 and 13 year old kids are being charged with assault weekly and are in municipal court for their crimes. Purse snatching, carjacking, and identity thief are common crimes in Terrell around the Tanger Outlet mall, Big Lots, and Wal Mart.

Drive around Terrell and count the number of houses with burglar bars on doors and windows. This is always a good indicator people are living there in fear of being burglarized.

There is no way I'd ever consider living in or close to crime and drug riddled Terrell.

I've heard that Hawk Cove is the worst from the same people who grew up there. I never would think that a trend describes ALL people in an area, I apologize if that sounded that way. I still like the area. I like Terrell and Quinlan, well the Lake tawakoni area to be more specific.

To say that Terrell has ten times the crime rate might be explained by the fact that it has ten times the people....

They always have a police truck at the mail boxes in Hawk Cove which helps and they also have police on 4wheelers in that area now. Big city and big money is right on top of Quinlan so it's just a matter of time before they run the bad people out. I love the area and the people.

We moved from Mesquite and bought a new house in Terrell in 2006 in a great location but never thought about sending our boys to TISD - We chose Q-Town and after 4 years it has proven to be the right choice

We have had several kids at our house every where we have lived and not one single kid from Quinlan has been anything but polite and respectful. These kids aren't polite because they are at my house, it's because they are raised right at home.

Drugs are every where but in a small town you can single them out better, go across the tracks here in Terrell at 2am on a Friday....

As with all small and large towns, Quinlan does have it's share of drug and crime problems.

However, the people are wonderful, caring and helpful people. Anytime I go to the post office, someone is always holding the door open for me, be it a man or woman.

And yes, you see people in the electric carts, but you see that anywhere. These people have a reason for using the carts. They have a handicap and how dare anyone to question why they are using the electric carts.

I have lived in Quinlan for 28 years. Our children got a wonderful education and all have degrees and good jobs.

Try visiting one of our many wonderful churches and you might change your mind. Also, the Lake Area Shared Ministry is run by wonderful Christian people. So, all in all, Quinlan is not as bad afterall.

No I don't know your football record... What the hell does that have to do with anything? Is this the mentality of Quinlan? Who cares if your house gets robbed we're good at football???

Hawk Cove is a bad area and yes they do have a truck sitting at the mailboxes but it depends who is on duty in that truck. there are only one or two cops that can write tickets cause the rest of the cops here are not certified peace officers. and ppl that live here know that. so when the unverified ones are duty there's really nothing they can do. yea they could county for back up but county doesn't even like going out there. so if they would get more ceritified officers that can do everything tickets, arrests etc then hawk cove could be a nicer place then it is now. but until then its only gonna get worse.
