There are also web sites that show the addresses for sex offenders.
Brittany, these are general questions and you can say that generally there are these types of crimes anywhere - though some parts of Colorado may not report a single murder in an entire year.
Crime rates and community safety is not something we as Realtors should directly communicate about according to our ethical guidelines. But we are glad to direct you to the government and other sources to give you the statistics that you need to make your decisions about a community. I recently wrote a blog about this and there are some great links to sites that give you Denver statistics as well as crime stats for all of the communities that might interest you - http://bit.ly/zSBnoR
The other thing i would suggest is to take a drive through the communities that interest you. Go at different times of the day and later at night to get a feel of what is comfortable or a little sketchy for you. No community is perfect and what is comfortable and acceptible for one resident can be very different for another. Let me know if I can help you further with deciding the 'right' place for you to live.

It seems you want to live in the community, and you're looking for people to tell you it's OK. Well, you've gotten that from a couple of real estate pros.
I have a question for you: Are you going to rely on the word of real estate agents more heavily than you would on other people's, because they are the pros?
Feel free to call with more questions.

As far has mugging rape and murder go, I would say it is very safe. In the nine years I have lived there I have walked home in the dark many times and have never once had an issue. I know of two murders in the neighborhood in that time and in both cases they were realitives in a family dispute.
You can go on the DPS website to get true numbers that are broken down by incident. I hope this helps.
Feel free to ask more or call.
