Mdouglas81, check out http://www.melissadata.com/lookups/index.htm . This is a site I use all the time to answer the same questions. It has demographic info, as well as crime stats and other related info. It's very useful.

Also, check out http://www.longbeach.gov/police/statistics.asp . This has each district mapped out and numbered for easy reference. A great Long Beach Resource.

Another thing I advise my clients to do is to check out the neighborhood at different times on weekends, evenings, etc. Talk to neighbors and get their opinion. Afterall, who would know the neighborhood better. This usually gives potential buyers a feel for the area and a chance to interact with potential new neighbors.

Best of Luck,

Hi: I can understand your concern in wanting to check out the crime and safety info for a home you are considering ... Trulia only tracks crime for Long Beach as a whole as compared to Los Angeles County.

If you want more specific information, may I suggest you call the Long Beach Police Department - North Long Beach Division's non-emergency number 562-570-9825. This will connect you to Marlene and she is the LBPD's crime statistics expert for the North Division ... I hope this information helps.

Good Luck!

That is very near Walnut and Artesia. The area is not safe and crime rates are high. 90805 as a whole suffers from violent crimes, property crimes, drug related incidents and so forth. Real Estate prices are comparable in much nicer areas. I do not recommend living here AT ALL.

M,

The best resource for issues of neighborhood safety is the local police department or the county sheriff's department. they have access to the mose accurate and current information and are generally very willing to assist people.

Good luck,

Hello Mdoublas: That zip code is known as the north Long Beach area. And as I have written before to other Buyers regarding this question....A professional real estate agent will provide you with sources that you can utilize in order to make a decision.

There is a huge liability factor here if you were to have this question answered by an agent, then a few days after you move in you encounter a crime issue whether major or minor. Your decision to purchase this home would have been based on the agent’s perspective as to how safe the area was.
