Google is a great resource, but I like to use a site called CLR Search. Here is the information for Melissa TX:

http://www.clrsearch.com/Melissa_Demographics/TX/Crime-Rate

Compare Melissa to some other areas near there such as:

McKinney: http://www.clrsearch.com/McKinney_Demographics/TX/Crime-Rate

Anna: http://www.clrsearch.com/Anna_Demographics/TX/Crime-Rate

Allen: http://www.clrsearch.com/Allen_Demographics/TX/Crime-Rate

Don't rely on just the internet or a single website and always use multiple sources to get your information. Call the local police dept and get the crime statistics from them as well.

Hope this is helpful,

Violent crime in Melissa? Wow I think most of it would be between people who know each other, not random.
Best person to check with is your local CRO or Community Resource Officer at the police department. Melissa is small enough that they might not have one, so if they don't just ask for the best person to talk to regarding crime rates or crime prevention.
