The zip code you entered is an Annapolis zip code. Hopefully your research has answered your initial question. Another website that used to be helpful to get a feel for different areas is www.citydata.com. Alot of times, people are moving to an area and ask locals, also there is alot to read from other posters.

If you are working with a Realtor, he or she can point you to some websites that will satisfy your worry. Anne Arundel County site is great and full of information. You can also call local police station and ask for reports.
I will tell you the condos in the Tidewater and Windgate area are very popular.
Please let me know if you need any further help.
