When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local police department with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.

Hi, Scott!
Not sure what area to which you refer, but do you mean Onamia? If so, here is a website where you can find out all sorts of statistics about the Onamia area.
http://www.city-data.com/city/Onamia-Minnesota.html

Or, you may be able to find the answers you need by contacting local law enforcement agencies to discuss your concerns.

But, I can't state enough, as I've said before on this forum, we, as licensed agents in the State of MN are not allowed to address direct questions about crime statistics in any given area. By doing so, it could be construed that we are either steering people toward or away from an area based on what we think is most acceptable, rather than what buyers think is most acceptable. The Dept. of Commerce watches us very carefully to make sure we're NOT dispensing that kind of info.

Good luck!

Scott, the best bet is to call the sheriff's department or check out http://www.corr.state.mn.us it that is the old information then the sherriff would have more up to date information for you.
