I hope that you reconsider moving to pine bluff with your family with any intention of getting them a quality education or a sense of security. You must lock your doors every day and night with the hope that no one breaks in to steal what you have worked hard to acquire for yourself. Shootings seem to be almost a daily activity in a city that had 60,000 residents in the 1990's to a now dwindling 40,000. If you know anything about population you will understand that when populations decrease in an area it is not too good. Crime is rampant and people are leaving at an expedited rate. The only thing I can say is worthwhile in the pine bluff area is the small business owners who work very hard to make the town somewhat livable. Please just do yourself a favor and look up crime statistics on this region itself and make an educated judgement call.
