Jim, I believe that Sue is referring to the Fair Housing Act. You don't wanna mess with the Feds, man. Don't be getting your knickers all in a twist over this.

I agree with my colleagues, you should contact SACPD at (916) 264-5471, and this is their department directory: http://www.sacpd.org/contact/directory/

BTW, http://www.crimereports.com shows all the crime activities reported on a map.
That should provide you with good information.

When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local police department with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit 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/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.

Sue, What federal regulation are you talking about? My reference is the 1st amendment to the constitution of the United States, aka "Bill of Rights"
I will vociferously defend any citizens right to offer his or her civil opinion.

'Gang' activities happen at all times of the day and night in all cities. Oak Park has crime but it also has alot of positive neighborhood development activities as well. (even the 'nicest' neighborhoods have crime, believe me)

It is against federal regulations for any person in public service (including realtors, police officers, etc.) to comment on 'safety' of neighborhoods. Rather, study the crime statistics looking for various trends, but most important, talk to the people that live there, drive through the neighborhoods at various times of the day or days of the week and observe for yourself. Being that you're in Connecticut that may be difficult but maybe someone else can do that for you?

What about gang activities during daylight hours? Or on the weekends? Actually, I am trying to figure out why a consumer in Connecticut would be asking questions that no real estate agent can answer about an area located 3,000 miles across the country. Do you have family who live here?

Many neighborhoods are fortunate to have Community Oriented Policing, and you might ask about that in Oak Park at the police department -- speak to one of those officers.

I would check with the police they would be the one to tell you how the crime is in the area. Also check with the neighborhood watch you might get some good information from them that might help you with your area.
