Seattle chiming in again, Gail.

Nobody - not a single person on G-d's Green Earth - should be willing to tell you that the neighborhood is "safe." Recently, a Bombardier Challenger 600 crashed in Vail, Colorado; I suspect that everybody thought that flight was safe, too.

My advice: drive around the neighborhood, especially at night on weekends. See for yourself.

All the best,

Johnsongail,
Anyone who says "safe" is at risk of getting sued if you become the victim of a crime. Anyone who says "unsafe" risks being sued by the local town for bad mouthing their city.
On the property link there is a tab on the map for crimes. It gives a visual look at the crime rate and type of crime in the area. You can expand or contract the area to gain more information. You can compare that to where you live now or other options and decide for yourself if you are comfortable. Best of luck.

Good morning. If you would like to schedule a time to view this home, please call me anytime. Looks like you had your question answered several times already and I would suggest the same as the other agents: drive the neighborhood and research online so you can feel satisfied with your decision. What is considered safe to one person may not be to another, so it's up to you. I would be happy to meet with you to view this home or any others.

I can email you over a form called 'Tenant Advisory' that is published by the Arizona Association of Realtors that will help you with investigating the area that you want to live in. There are resources for schools, crime reports, and community information.
