Hello "T"
I grew up in San Bruno and I have sold many homes in the area as well several associates in my office. San Bruno doesn't have a 'rep' for gang activity as far as I'm aware. It's ideally located to SF and Silicon Valley. The Crestmoor Park area is very nice as is the Highlands area, although a little foggy as you get closer to Skyline College. School test scores aren't bad and the view of the Bay from Skyline Blvd is the prettiest at night. I have several Police Officer clients that live in the area. My colleges all give great advice about checking with the police or crime stats. I hope you will check out San Bruno further and not cross it off your home finding list. An experienced agent can help find the right home in the right neighborhood for your budget.

Crestmoor 1-2-and 3 are all pretty good areas of San Bruno. So is Mills and Huntington Park, but the best is probably Parkview. It's the Cadillac of San Bruno.

As the others have noted, check with the Police dept to get the info directly from the horses mouth.

If you have any other questions regarding San Bruno, feel free to ask.

Cheers,

https://www.crimereports.com/ is a great source for mapping events reported to the police. You may find this useful in your decision making process.

Once you enter an address go to the "Incident Layers" tab to select what type of information is important to you.

The police department can give you the crime stats, but you should also look at the neighborhoods. Is there grafetti in public places? Do homes in the neighborhood have bars on the doors and windows to keep out intruders? Do a lot of the homes have fighting dogs in the yards and signs that say beware of dogs? Do homes look well cared for or are there a lot of signs of neglect and absentee landlords? Sometimes these signs are more telling than a police report.
