I am relocating with my family to Sallisaw from a very small town where the crime rate is lower than the national average. From my research, Sallisaw seems to have a somewhat higher crime rate than the national average. I was hoping that some residents might share some views about the crime rates with me...How much violent crime is there? Property crime? Are drugs a big problem? I've been through Sallisaw several times and the general area seems nice enough. Are there certain areas of town that I should stay away from when looking for a home? I would definitely appreciate any infomation you're willing to share - thanks!

Sallisaw is an awesome place to live. Like every place you have the positives and negatives but the residents overall are friendly and easy to get to know. You definitely have your clicks but who doesn't. It's a great place to raise kids. Good luck and hopefully you will have a great experience:)

You will be so very sorry if you move to Sallisaw
Sallisaw is full of ignorant, redneck, rude, obnoxious, backwood, snobbish, uneducated, trailer trash hillbillies. Sallisaw reminds me of the movie "Deliverance."
Sallisaw is also known as the Meth Capital of the U.S.
The majority of the people in Sallisaw are on some form of welfare assistance.
The "cost of living" in Sallisaw is outrageous.
Take it from one who knows and DON"T MOVE TO THIS HORRIBLE PLACE BECAUSE YOU WILL REGRET DOING SO.

Once that was true but then you moved to Tulsa and now it's a nice place to live...

Look forward to meeting the new arrival and the cost of living is under the national average as far as welfare recipients they aren't anymore than other surrounding states and considerably lower than California.

Still living in that run down trailer aren't you?

Unlike you I don't live in a trailer. My home is on a hill overlooking a private body of water, you would probably think it was the sea. I have 6 bedroom, 6 bath, 5,165 sq ft. home with pool. So I'm happy and my family is happy. You want to call that podunk..well go ahead bubba better than what the average American has!

Go ahead and brag about what you have while we taxpayers are furnishing you with food stamps to feed those dozen kids that you have.
Now, do you still want to call someone bubba?

Oh, I failed to ask. How much drug dealing did you have to do to be able to afford a house like that in a podunk town like Sallisaw?

Geez. Well I know for a fact there are beautiful homes located on lakes around Grand Lake,Tenkiller other locations and then there are private lakes which have lovely homes. So this person could very well enjoy that lifestyle. These people don't buy groceries with food stamps either in case you're wondering. Probably pays significantly more in taxes than you do...just saying.

I wish people like you would get your facts straight BEFORE popping off at the mouth.
For your information, I happen to know some people personally that live in close to a million dollar home, bought with drug money AND THEY DO GET FOOD STAMPS. AS A MATTER OF FACT, CLOSE TO $1500.00 A MONTH IN FOOD STAMPS.
NOW WHAT SAY YE??????

If you know of illegal activities then YOU should report them to the proper authorities.

Having posters start a verbal pissing match was not what I had in mind when I asked my question. I truly do appreciate and thank those that responded to my original post. However, if your only reason for replying is to sling around disrespectful single minded opinions or bicker...don't bother. Thanks again to those who replied with honesty and kindness.:)

Btw, Since I know that there are legitimate drug problems virtually everywhere nowadays, I researched the "Sallisaw is also known as the Meth Capital of the U.S" comment - Fox news published a story in 3/11 and police agreed that the city known as the Meth Capital is ...Tulsa!

I must apologize for the misbehavior of some posters since they are posting under a screen name they think it's cute,funny or part of popular culture to use language or phrases that are simply rude.
They don't care if what they post has one ounce of truth either.

I personally hope your decision to move to Oklahoma offers you everything you were hoping for you and your family.

Wishing you the best.

There you go showing your ignorance AGAIN. If you know the right people in Sallisaw you can do as you very well please.
I don't need to report them to the proper authorities.
The proper authorities already know all about it and has known about it for several years.
