Real estate professionals are prohibited by federal law from discussing any area in subjective terms such as good, bad, safe, quiet, beautiful, etc. And they're absolutely prohibited from interpreting the data to steer a buyer "a few miles south" as was done below.
Trulia has links to crime stats in different areas on the property listings; click through there and you should be able to get your question answered about an area.
I hope this message finds you doing well. The nature of our professional licenses dictate that we are not allow to steer or disparage any neighborhood over any other. That said, all neighborhoods aren't created equal.
A great place to get a feel for the surrounding area would be zipskinny.com, linked below.
It will have a plethora of info that may be of interest to you.
Many Thanks for Your question and please don't hesitate to shoot me a message if I may be of further assistance.

Real estate agents are not allowed to label an area "bad". That is a determination the buyer has to make for himself.
If you are wondering whether more crime occurs here as compared with other parts of Tucson, you can do some research here:
But "bad" might mean something different to you. Maybe you wonder whether people here take pride in their homes, or are the homes and yards poorly maintained. Or perhaps you wonder if the area is subject to noise or odor issues.
If you are not familiar with Tucson, I urge you come here and investigate various neighborhoods. The character of the neighborhoods can change quickly form one block to another. In a few days, you will have your own idea of which areas you prefer.
Best of luck,
Tierra Antigua Realty
As a Realtor, I strongly suggest you find someone you trust to work with who can advise you based upon the market and our industry guidelines. Feel free to give me a call at your convenience.
As a Realtor I am not allowed to discuss or have a conversation regarding how "bad" an area or neighborhood is or isn't. However, there are free public sites that monitor reported crimes, allowing the general public to view the crime statistics. I am including a couple for you to review here.
Are you pre-approved with a lender? If not, that should be the first step for any potential home buyer(s). Next, start a relationship with a local Realtor or agent to start your search. You have some fantastic replies from good agents here in Tucson, AZ already.
Best of luck in your search.

If you want to know the crime rate, I suggest you go to the Tuson Police Dept's website--
TPD.gov--and look up that address.
I can tell you that the home needs substantial repairs and won't qualify for
a traditional loan.
