lived in Emporia all of 2002-2003. Extremely safe. Huge and friendly police presence. I often walked all night in the summers and never felt even uneasy. Read a paper there sometime and you'll see how little and minor crime is there. It's a nice university town. What about all those poor falling apart towns in western Kansas.
