Research on a neighborhood and local communities can be conducted in number of ways.
Driving through the neighborhood at different times of the day and night, observing activity around the houses is an excellent method. The mood of a street can change from mid-afternoon to the evening.
Inquiring with the local police on their activities in the area is the best gage of crime.
Don’t forget to check with the EMT service also, and ask how often they are called for non-health related issues (fights, assaults, etc.)

One way to check for residents of the neighborhood that may have
questionable backgrounds is to do a street search for sex offenders on this site:

Al1,

Issues of neighborhood safety are often best referred to the local police department or county sheriff's department. They have access to the most accurate and current information and are generally very willing to be helpful.

Best wishes
