Help the community by answering this question:


The best way to determine the crime rate in a certain neighborhood to get in contact with the local police community groups. Check their records for the rate, frequencies and types of crimes that are occurring in a particular neighborhood, especially the local public housing units then compare them to the crime rates in other communities and see if there is a big difference. Public housing got its bad rap during the 70's due to the race riots that are frequently occurring there. In recent times though, most of the negative perception is due to the fact that a huge number of people who live in public housing units are minorities and low income families.

The best answer I can give you si to call the Charlotte police department. I moved here six years ago and was looking for a place to rent while searching for a house. i talked to numerous realtors and posted questions about neighborhoods and convience to stores. but when it came to the safety of a neighborhood I called the police department.
I found them to be honest in their assessment of the areas I was considering and did nto try to sway me one way or the other. They gave me the facts and let me decide from there.

The best resource for crime and safety issues is usually the local police department or county sheriff's department. They have access to the most accurate and current information and are generally willing to be helpful.

Call the police departmtne to get those stats or google crime stats Charlotte. You can go on or something like that to get an idea of where sex offenders live. The best public housing is in areas where people hold jobs and are close to bus routes. The Charlotte police department does a fine job of policing our city. Also, some of the eldering public housing is well managed.
