The City of DeWitt is a suburb of lansing with mostly middle class residents. The police force and city council members know most of the residents. The downtown area is only a few blocks with one main bar.
The people were very friendly, especially the police department. The town has not been overindustrialized like many of the towns in Michigan. There are still many parks and big fields where I would always see kids outside playing when driving through the town.
The high school has many successful sports teams. The girls and boys basketball teams both made it quite far this year in the district tournament and have many returning athletes.
