I used to live in that area 10 years ago where we raised our two sons before moving to Washington state (and then we moved back Santa Clara County). At that time I personally didn't feel in harms way.
What I can share with you is that all neighborhoods have their issues and they change. Also each person's tolerance is different than another. In additional to looking at the crime reports visit the neighborhoods at various times of the day and weekends. Talk to neighbors, the local stores, and businesses. They are going to be your best resources.

"...there are websites with the information for you so that you can see what reports have been made to the police. You can review http://www.crimereports.com to see the police activity in the area and also http://www.meganslaw.ca.gov "

If you are also interested in the quality of schools I can set up a search for homes based upon API scores as well as bedrooms, baths, sqft, price, etc.... I have the only tool in the industry able to do so.
In otherwords, in this county or that zip code show me all homes for sale that are in the attendance boundary for elementary or middle schools with an API score of 850 or more.
Interested Buyers can contact me at 408-209-0849 or Stu@StuCarson.com and I will set up your custom home search-automated alert for you.

I have clients who live on Kooser Road. I am frequently on Kooser Road. Personally I consider Kooser Road and the surrounding area to be a very safe, very desirable neighborhood.
However, whether a neighborhood is safe or desirable is an extremely subjective decision.
One of the best ways that I have found for my clients to determine whether or not my clients will like the neighborhood, is to go knocking on doors in the neighborhood and talk to the neighbors before you buy in the neighborhood.
I have found going out and talking to the neighbors to be one of the best ways to determine whether or not you will like that neighborhood.

As a realtor we are prevented from steering clients in regards to a neighborhood's demographics, safety, ethnic make up, etc., so we cannot "rate" any area for safety.
However there are websites with the information for you so that you can see what reports have been made to the police. You can review http://www.crimereports.com to see the police activity in the area and also http://www.meganslaw.ca.gov.
