Talk directly to some of the immediate residents.
Statistics are great but I rely on my instincts and my own comfort zone.
Visiting a local police station and talking directly to one of the officers is assuring as well as more personal.
Glad you are doing your homework. Rely on your own conclusions.
I would suggest you go to the Hillsborough County website and search the records there. The city of Tampa also has a link to the city police force you can search. I have pasted the county sheriff's website below. For basic demographic info go to zipskinny.com and just enter the zipcode. I would go to the sheriff's site and search for records by either sub-division names or street names.
