shahswap, Renter in Houston, TX

I am looking at Lodge at Shadowlake Apartment Complex to rent. Can you recommend me how is the safety in the apartment complex and area overall?

Asked by shahswap, Houston, TX Tue May 22, 2012

If I go out at night and come back late nights and walk from parking lot to my apartment, is it safe enough?

For HPD, you can go here >> http://mycity.houstontx.gov/crime/ (I chose the Monthly URC Crime Report ... there are other options like a map search which I don't find overly friendly). I found the the report (see link) for Beat 20G30. I know where the Shadowlake area is but I'm not sure if this is the exact Beat for the property you requested. The results are for the month of April, 2012. Addresses to the nearest 100th block are also available. It looks like this report is missing some categories ... or maybe these are the only types of crimes in April. Also, the report doesn't seem to distinguish between things like burglary for residential and for commercial. I also don't see things like drug arrests which I know is happening all the time. If you look at CrimeReports.com up in Precinct 4 (Champions area/Tomball/Spring etc), they have really good maps. They don't carry HPD data though. CrimeReports.com does carry the sex offenders for all areas in Texas (whose source is here >> https://records.txdps.state.tx.us/DpsWebsite/Index.aspx).

Click the WhatsNotInMLS.com link below for the Crime Report

By the way, crime does seem to be everywhere. I'm still surprised every time I see it mapped out though.

Maybe get a place with an attached garage, would be worth it. Let me know I can find it, Darryl

What you don't want to hear but it's the truth, crime is random and everywhere (million dollar areas too)
Crime reports help but don't base it all on that. Be smart and cautious. I do free apartment locating assistance and can give you a gift card to assist with your move to shadow lake or any other. I'll find the specials and promos. Call or text Darryl @ 8322796341 licensed locator
