And "safe" is all so subjective and whenever someone poses this question it's nice to have them explain what they're fearful of, what does safe mean to them, etc.
I've just got done reading a great book: "Free Range Kids" Might be a good summer read??

On my website you can compare crime and schools for any 2 communities just plug in the zip codes.
Interested in what the crime rate is for this area?
How does this area youâ€™re interested in compare with where you live now
A great resource for demographics as well as crime statistic is Portlandmaps.com. Really easy to use site. You just type in an address and it can tell you a ton about a property...schools, census, permits, parks, schools, transportation, etc. All the tabs are on the upper right.
I am happy to schedule a time with you to see this property so you can be the judge for yourself on the neighborhood as well as home. Does that interest you?
Best to you
Real estate brokers are not permitted by law to make judgments about whether or not particular neighborhoods are safe or unsafe or have lower or higher levels of crime. However, http://portlandmaps.com has all the statistical information regarding crime and safety that you need. All you need to do is simply to enter an address in the neighborhood you are interested in living in, and the information will get pulled right up.
Hope this helps.
