Help the community by answering this question:


Police departments, websites of the town you intend to move to, and driving through the neighborhoods you intend to consider, are your best way to get your questions answered.... these days you can find pretty much all information via the internet... As Realtors we cannot suggest or promote areas, as it is against the law.....
But if and when you start working with an area Realtor, that Realtor would be able to guide you to the various websites that will answer all your questions and concerns.

Good luck to you!

If you are concerned about safety, contact/visit the local police department and ask all your questions, they'll gladly help; if you are not familiar with the area, do visit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals, drive around, look at everything that is important to you, etc., then make a determination, will your comfort level be reached.

There are several steps that any buyer should do to determine how safe and neighborhood is likely to be.

1 – Ask the local police/sheriffs department

Gather the street names closest to the home you and considering and ask them to check on the streets. They will in most cases tell you if many calls are made to the area.

2 - Megan's Law Database


This site offers a search feature and will show the current location of known sex offenders.

3 – Online data is full of statistics and information. is another good site, which has crime statistics.

4 - Talk to neighbors

Talk to several people. Most people are friendly and will share everything they know. Nothing beats the insight of someone that has lived in the area for years.

5 – Visit the neighborhood at various times of the day and night.

What is the condition of the surrounding block or two? What condition are the houses? Are the front yards manicured and well cared for? Broken down cars, chain link fences, and pit bulls are not a good sign.

Hi Dale,

We as realtors cannot steer anyone to a certain neighborhood, but here is the crime statistics website.

Feel free to look up the neighborhood.

Call me if you need any help.
