Hi Kinda,
Check out Trulia's crime map as well for this area.

There are some trouble spots in my opinion in the Valley Oak area. Perhaps not in the immediate area of his home. Take a look at the crime activity.

All the Best,

Stockton is just like every other city that has areas that are affected by crime. However, that is the exception and not the rule. There are sooo many great areas that people are unaware of, and unfortunately Stockton overall gets a bad rap because of the smaller crime ridden areas. Just like with any other cities, if you want to avoid crime, stay away from high crime area. I am originally from San Jose, and I was a victim of break-ins and robberies there. This is something that can happen anywhere. People shouldn't be so quick to judge the entire city. Find a great Realtor who can introduce you to some of the hidden gems that Stockton has to offer

Yes there are gang members in that area. any location left anywhere which seems "affordable" so to sp[eak especially in Stockton ("Hello") will have gang members, friends of gang members, families who are loyal to gangs and the members, scared people who are in fear of their lives.
This answer seems obvious to me and I just unfortunately moved here

I feel I must also add... Drug activity? Seems a multi generational problem as well here in Stockton.
