Kent Crossing, over the Columbia River, is about 10 miles away from St. Claire. As real estate boomed between 2002 and 2006, this sleepy rural town of 10,000 people has grown substantially to nearly 30,000 people as suburbs were added. Kent Crossing is becoming the "bedroom community" of St. Claire--a place where the middle class can buy a larger house and plot of land for much less than what they would pay in the city.
The Kent Crossing Police Department (KCPD) does an adequate job of patrolling the town and suburbs, but lacks the sophistication, equipment, and funding that the SCPD enjoys. Much of the forensics work for the KCPD is farmed out to the SCPD. There is some mild friction between the KCPD and the SCPD, generally resentment/envy over the SCPD's resources. Allegedly, the KCPD is rampant with the "good ol' boy" network and there is almost blatant favoritism towards friends and family of KCPD employees.
In 1993, large plots of land in Regan county and bordering on Wolf Woods National Park were bought by Aspen Demilune and a mansion was constructed. The grounds remained untouched and in her hands for only a short time, however. The multi-millionaire land baron disappeared without a trace later that winter. Almost two years after Demilune's disappearance, and with the absence of a will or any surviving relatives, her large tracts of land went on the auction block. Most of the suburbs cropping up today are on these highly desirable lands, and are being rapidly converted into suburbs by people who want to escape the city and get back to nature--so long as "nature" refers to a nice yard and not dense forest with no amenities like electricity, city water, and sewage.
