Your question asks for the "safest neighborhood to live and work it?". Are you looking for the one, single, only neighborhood that is the absolute safest in Albuquerque Is that the only criteria for your search? .
A gated community is usually a good first line deterrent to crime, next are the individual efforts.
I am going to sell my home in Altura Village, a gated and patrolled community. Please feel free to email if interested in more information.
Best of luck in your search.
I suggest to my clients that we first seek homes in the neighborhoods that you find most meet your needs and wants other than safety. When you have found the home you like, I recommend the buyer seek out crime statistics from the police department. Next, the buyers should visit the neighborhood at various times of day and night to observe the activities in the neighborhood. Lastly, pick a time when people are most likely to be home and knock on a few doors and inquire from the neighbors how safe they feel their neighborhood is. This approach has worked well for others and may address your concerns. I would be happy to assist
you in finding this property, just give me a call.

I strongly recommend contacting the local police department for crim statistics to help you determine which neighborhood may meet the safe standards that you desire for a community. There's no real way to determine the safest area it based on market value.
The same goes for employment. Ultimately, your career may have you working in one city, while your home may reside in another. Working with an experienced real estate agent can help you determine all your options by utilizing all the available resources.

Here is another good crime resource for you: http://www.cabq.gov/onlinesvcs/crimestats/index.html
Our crime is actually pretty pocketed here, so some of these stats should help you see the few areas where you might not feel as safe. Otherwise, the city is wide open, lots of wonderful different areas, great to live and work in! In this metro we have a wide variety of areas, from large university, to river greenbelt, to sandy desert, to downtown metro, to mountain foothills, to suburbia, so what's your pleasure beyond the crime concern? ;o)
