Every area has some crime, from property theft, vandalism, to prostitution and drugs, and even to violent crimes involving guns. You may want to look at the types of crimes and not just the volume. Personally, violent crimes seem to be more worrisome aspect of a neighborhood, but you may be worried about streetwalkers, too.
If there's an area you're interested in, please let us know. We've got software that will produce all kinds of data for you about the proposed area you're considering - including crime rate - and any other factors you consider significant. Happy to oblige free of charge.

I personally have lived in the community for 20 years. We have raised our kids here and we love it. We are close enough to drive to Dallas to see sporting events, restaurants, theatre, etc. but when we get home we feel like we are out of the rat race.
Let me know if you would like for me to help you search for a new home.
There are a few great resources around. I think it is best to contact your Community Resource Officer or CRO at the police department. Just call the main non-emergency number and ask to be connected to the CRO. Theyâ€™re normally very aware of the good and bad areas of the area and can normally give you local statistics. You can also check out http://www.ojp.usdoj.gov/bjs/ which provides stats based on the FBI uniform crime reports. You might also visit the FBI stats site at http://www.fbi.gov/ucr/ucr.htm#cius. Another place to checkout is http://www.Crimeweb.net . Hope this is of you to you.
In many instances as with other major cities the communities where the areas have gone down in true value will usually warrant more of crime rate, those areas are supported via government housing many of the residence are unemployed.
However in these areas cities usually go back in start cleaning up the areas, and housing can be inexpensive at the time with only an upside I have seen some great foreclosures in these areas
IF you seeking a home to purchase notify my office we can provide you Dallas home foreclosures allows you to have approx. 15% or more equity !
However never purchase home without a real estate agent representing you !
