When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local police department with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.
You should talk to the Sarasota County Sheriff or Charlotte County Sheriff about crime statistics. If Trulia's crime stats are as accurate as their property listings, you're better off going right tot he source of the most accurate information.
