I'm in agreement with Richard in that you should contact the local police department to hear first-hand what the crime rate and types of crimes are in the area. Internet web sites detailing crime statistics are not the best source for obtaining this kind of important information.
Good luck to you!

I use spotcrime.com to search neighborhood crime statistics. You can search by any time period including months or the most recent few days. It is a great comparison tool. Realtors are not allowed to comment on crime statistics but we can provide you with good resources to do your own research.
