Yes it's safe. It's not as bad as people portray it to be.

When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local authorities with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods. http://www.neighborhoodscout.com/

Crimereports.com is my favorite online source, but if I have the chance I like to drive by the location and walk around the neighborhood at least once during the day and once at night. That usually gives me a better idea of how safe an area is.

That area is considered pretty safe, but not one of the best neighborhoods. If you want to get info on crime in various parts of LA, try these tools:

LAPD publishes crime data for public view. You can see what crime activity is nearby that address (or any other) by using this site: http://www.crimemapping.com/map.aspx?aid=3db8cf99-a73b-46d2-…

Also helpful is the LA Times "Mapping LA" site which shows how to data stacks relative to other neighborhoods in LA County: http://maps.latimes.com/neighborhoods/neighborhood/palms/crime/
