Blessingisa2,

You can get reports from the Metro DC Police department and you can also talk to the neighbors in the area. There is nothing like getting information directly from the source.

Here are some websites you may want to consider:

Great Question,

Safety can be a concern in most areas within the Washington DC area, however it's best to understand urban cities such as Washington DC have crime throughout the city. Crime occurs even in areas where some wouldn't expect it. Your best bet will be to contact the Metropolitan Police Department on their non-emergency phone number and ask. You can also use the crime map: http://crimemap.dc.gov/

Unfortunately, there is no way to guarantee any neighborhood as a "safe" community. Where ever there are people, there will be crime. Sure, there are some neighborhoods where statistically you are more likely to be a crime victim, but even those neighborhoods have their good sides.

The police department is a good place to start for digging up neighborhood crime statistics, but I would advise that you don't make the mistake of making your decision based only on those numbers.

Maybe because the jail time for stealing a kid is a lot longer then the jail time for stealing a car.....?????
