Hi Bap030968. One person's "safe" may not necessarily be another person's "safe", so it is always best to do your own research on any given location. I like the following site for crime research:

http://www.spotcrime.com/tx/dallas

I have also suggested to clients in the past that they call the Police Department and find out which beat cops work a certain area, then call them for an opinion. I've done this myself, for myself in the past and felt that I received much better information than I could view on a map. I also think it is very important to remember that while some areas may have less crime than others, crime can happen anywhere, and does.

When it comes to any safety concerns, for accurate and up to the minute information contact the local authorities; if unfamiliar with the area, do visit 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, or not, in specific neighborhoods...

Check out http://www.trulia.com/crime/ and/or talk to the beat officer for your neighborhood.
Talk to the neighbors or people who live there.

Everyone's idea of safe has a different definition.
