I am looking to relocate and want to be in a lively environment but also a safe one, might be too much to ask for. I am coming from Las Vegas, Nv. so I really don't want to be in a sleepy area but I don't want to become a victim either.
Gigi44, you can start at crimereports.com and then for more information you can also go to the local police department to get crime info for the area. Another suggestion would be to drive around the area you are looking at during different times of the day and day of the week (morning, afternoon, night, weekday, weekend) to get a feel for the area to see if you would be comfortable living in that area. Good luck!
