As Realtors, we cannot tell you that an area is safe or not. It is a violation of Georgia License Law. We can however suggest where to find various kinds information. You have taken the first step by investigation crime reports on-line. If you have not already done so, look at the Atlanta Police Department's website too. They proivide very detailed information about types, location and date crimes occured. Use Google Streetview to explore the area virtually, but pay attention to how old the photographs are.
The most important think to do is to visit the area yourself at various times of day and of the week. Walk around the neighborhood, talk to people who live there, and judge for yourself. You might stop by the local police precinct too and get their thoughts.
Best of Luck,
