Does Crime Pay?

Have not taken this path yet, but have considered it in my lastest fiasco (city).


I skipped education for the first year or so then plopped down a high school, leading to my second question...


Can I skip elementary and plop down the high school?  Or if possible, like I have read elsewhere, go straight to community college?

college has no busses? and increases tech?


if your only interested in reducing crime health and fire related issues (education) then go with the high school, however putting it down late might end up with you playing catch up on crime for quiet a while, aswell as having much higher emergency service needs... i normally choose to go with an elementary school and try to keep my education at 4 hats - this results in the need of only 1 of each basic emergency service, with little to no upgrades, for a very long time... once my elementary capacity is exceeded (max upgraded) i will either replace it with a high school or keep it and place a high school.

One bubble of education is enough to fight off most education related crime.  Two is nice.  More than that I have not found a reason to have unless you want to tech up your businesses or go for high wealth population.


I have a casino city with two bubbles of education, four or five casinos, and almost no crime.  Love that crime copter. :)
