Denver real estate homebuyers should contact the local police department for the most recent and most comprehensive crime report. It might be easier to visit a crime report website, but the website information might not reflect recent activity.
Be sure to visit the neighborhood during the busy evening hours, between 4:00 and 6:00 p.m. Try to meet the neighbors and strike up a friendly conversation. Ask them what they know about the house and the surrounding neighbors; you will find they offer a wealth of information.
Contact the local police department and ask for statistics. Ask if they have a local website that will give you the information you need. I would also ask if they have any officers that patrol the area that you can speak with.
One final suggestion is to review the city/town website for other helpful information that you may overlook but need to know.
Happy House Hunting.
You can check with your local police department to see if they have a website you can check on your own, and here is another site you can use to check - http://www.crimemapping.com/
It wouldn't hurt to touch base with your local police department to get context as well..
