Federal Equal Housing Opportunity Laws prevent Real Estate Professionals from "Steering" people to or from specific areas buy giving personal observations in answer to your question and the long and short of it is that no one can determine how much crime may be too much for you...only you can do that.
I always recommend that my clients check the crime information reported by the CSPD & El Paso Sheriff's Office available at http://www.MyNeighborhoodUpdate.net and http://www.crimereports.com/ as well as at the CSPD (http://www.springsgov.com/sectionindex.aspx?sectionid=12) and El Paso Sheriff's Office Websites (http://shr.elpasoco.com/).
I also highly recommend to my clients that they drive the neighborhood surrounding a property they are interested in at least twice...once during the day and once in the evening...and look for how the other properties in the neighborhood are kept and as well as to determine if there are any aspects to the neighborhood they aren't comfortable with.
Once you have determined your level of comfort with the neighborhood then would be the time to schedule a showing on to see the interiors for yourself.
I hope you find this information of use and I wish you good fortune in your search

COLORADO REAL ESTATE...DONE RIGHT!â„¢

That is a good question to ask, especially if you are from out of town. Relatively speaking, the Springs is a safe place to live. As with anywhere though, there is crime at any given day at any part of the city. My friend is CSPD, and I have done the "ride along" with him. There is plenty that goes on that is at the misdemeanor level, as you might expect.
Others have probably already posted links, such as https://www.crimereports.com/. Do your homework, always be vigilant, but know that we are safer than many areas of the country.
Not to mention, this is a safe place to invest in a home! We do not experience the bubbles here.
Hope that helps.
If I can be of further assistance, please let me know.
