What's up with the very high level of violent crime in Westmoreland County? Certainly not a place to consider when there are so many other

Don't know what "high crime rate" you are referring to. The reported figures don't back you up. Area is country and crime rate is low.

Check on the crime issue now and you will find it very different (Jan 2013). Straftford Harbour had no criminal activity in 2012. Crime in Westmoreland County is down thanks to Sheriff Balderson and the Tri County drug force. Check it out for yourself.

No real clue here, probably a response to the economic conditions we are all working through. However, most Real Estate Professionals are not really allowed to comment specifically on crime, and will refer you to either local police or the State police for crime statistics. Obviously, you are able to judge for yourself if crime is too high in a particular area, you are able to look or move elsewhere. I realize this answer sounds flippant, I do not mean it to sound so! Best regards, Jim.
