You can do a Google search for crime maps. Trulia also has a crime map with additional information on Schools, commute times, etc. http://www.trulia.com/local/#crimes/denver-co.

Good Luck!

Hi Brittany,

This is a link to the Denver area crime statistics as reported by the Denver Police Department; I think you will find this useful. http://www.denvergov.org/PoliceDepartment/CrimeInformation/C…

Check with the local police departments to view crime stats. Realtors can only provide resources for questions like that. Do you know where you are looking to buy in Denver? What specifically are you looking for? I would be more than happy to discuss the many diverse areas of Denver with you.

Briitany,
As stated below, it is illegal to direct a person toward or away from any particular neighborhood for any reason. It is easy for you to check crime statistics for any and all neighborhoods via the Internet or you can even contact the Denver Chamber of Commerce and they will mail you the information. It would be helpful to all if you could be a little more specific like East Denver, West Denver, etc. Also are you limited to just the city or the area in general? Suburbs like Littleton, Golden, and Evergreen probably heve the lowest crime rates.

Briitany,

I moved to Denver 6-years ago from Chicago, and we decided on the Stapleton neighborhood. To me, crime rates are all a matter of perspective. Coming from Chicago, all of Denver seems safer.

I can tell you that the majority of crime in Stapleton is property crime, and most of that is opportunistic. People leaving items on their front porch, or leaving a garage door open, and someone walks away with their stuff.

Send me an email about what your are looking for in a home (number of beds/baths, price range, etc.) and I will send you back a list of properties to consider. I will even preview homes you like and if you plan to visit schedule some showings.

I look forward to welcoming you to the Great State of Colorado.

Take care,

Hi Brittany,

What are your other needs? Do you want to be close to an elementary or high school? Do you need a 15-or 30-minute commute to work? What is your price range? Are you looking for a single family home, townhome or condo? Do you want to rent or buy? It may be best to provide a Realtor with more specifics to find neighborhoods and communities that might work for you. Then, call the local police departments and ask them about crime statistics for those neighborhoods.

Let me know if I may assist you in any way.

Are you moving to Denver? It sounds like you've done some research on crime rates. For your infomration, Realtors cannot provice "crime statistics." That is up to the individuall to do there homework. If I can answer any other questions, please let me know. Julie Montgomery, http://www.jmontgomery.com
