Port Orchard has a wonderful school system, with teachers and mentors who care deeply about their students. The town itself is backed on two sides by water with wooded areas encompassing the other two sides. Despite having all of the features of a picturesque small town it is rampant with theft stemming from (specifically) a county wide Meth problem. The local police force is mostly made up of wonderful individuals, but due to the amount of crime they experience daily they care very little about crime, including property damage. In one neighborhood a man tore up four cars and two yards including fencing, and despite being given the name, address, and vehicle of the person who did it, the police never followed up. One officer in particular there also goes out of his way to stalk and hurt people, with little recourse. He was convinced that I was not a twin because of the way the state places twins with similar names into the system. I was unable to drive because he threatened to arrest me for using false identification, going as far as to call my military veteran father to inform him that his son had two identities. Until City Hall received a notice of my intent to sue the city, no one attempted to resolve this incident.
Great local shops downtown with easy ferry 15 minute Ferry access to Bremerton and Seattle. Most citizens are small town minded, and very friendly. Fantastic teaching and schooling system. McCormick Woods Golf Course has great food and reasonable green prices. Do not leave any valuables whatsoever in your car. If you drive an older car (especially a Honda) park as close to the entrance and cameras as possible. Do not park anywhere overnight unless you are at a hotel. Local police that are not the Sheriffs office treat everyone with little respect.
