As you can tell from the comments below, realtors are not the best people to ask for a direct answer to your question. If possible, take some time to visit a particular neighborhood at different times of the day (especially at night). Ask friends, family, or colleagues about their experience. Investigate any online comments. If you are coming into town, I would be happy to give you a tour of various neighborhoods so that you can make a more informed decision.

This link below may provide some helpful visual statistics but I also recommend doing some independent research.

I suggest you do searches on incident reports. You question is really an opinion and one a Realtor cannot give.
Good luck to you

We cannot comment on what safe is or isn't. I suggest you take a tour of the neighborhoods you would like to live in and decide that for yourself. Make sure you visit all types of hours and take the time to speak with the neighbors. Go to the local CAPS meetings and listen to the comments and concerns. Good luck!

Seriously! Realtors are among few salespeople in the world who are allowed to 'sell' nearly anything to anyone, at a nice healthy commission, and claim no responsibility for the product, its safety or 'right to sell' it. Signs are posted all over grocery stores, firearms stores, etc telling of consumer 'issues' with products, restrictions, alerts etc. With the largest purchase in your life, you're on your own. Remind me, again, who is to 'blame' for the housing bubble and issues. Selling 'unsuitable', 'high risk' items to the public without disclosure should be outlawed everywhere....
It would be great if realtors, at minimum would 'post' the facts and then let the consumer decide....not tell them to do a 'drive by'; It's not you..... it's the system and these kind of comments 'what is safe' , are discouraging. I apologize, but even when I think I might like to buy another property, these comments remind me why I won't use a realtor. Yes, I'll do a drive by ..
