Here are two great sites. The first is http://www.crimereports.com/ which give detailed
stats on neighborhoods throughout the U.S.
The second is http://www.zipskinny.com/, which will give you specific demographics
of an area.

Your local police dept would be able to give you information. Try different shifts as some shift could be more helpful than others. Also ask the local's that live in that community they are full of information and would know what is happening in the neighborhood.

Best resource contact local Police Department. Safety is always an issue GREAT complete research prior to purchase.

Properties can appear have a GREAT value however in high crime area. Some areas of Dallas many agents refuse show properties in HOWEVER that is their personal preference.

You can also look at http://spotcrime.com/tx and identify crime hot spots. Alot of the DFW cities have their crime maps at that site.

You could ask them...

Seriously, besides talking to the local precinct in that neighborhood, also talk to neighbors up and down the street. Ask several and you'll get an idea. Also, look for graffiti also known as "tagging" on signs, walls, etc. This is also a good indication of criminal activity. Depending where you live, certain police websites can show you on a map all crime activity in that area using different symbols for different crimes.

Also, check for vacant, abandoned houses in that neighborhood. They could attract crime to that area in the future, the longer their left vacant.

I would call the CRO or Community Resource officer at the Police Department. They should be happy to discuss with you or they might be able to put you in touch with one of the officers on the gang task force who could stop by and speak with you about it.

As below a great resource is you local police sub station. However http://www.city-data.com provides a zip code search and gives general crime statistics.

Your best source of information with regards to safety is always the local police department or any officer you may encounter around town--why not stop in and visit, ask all your questions.
