Your best bet is to contact the local police department and request information on crime rates in that area as well as the types of crimes. A local police officer will be much better at answering that question.

What may be horrible to some might be ok to others. Example: My wife and I lived in a really bad section of Philadelphia several years ago. Most people I know would never even drive near this section. We lived there several years and had no issues or worries.
