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, or not, in specific neighborhoods.

Not really the police department tries to downplay the actual activity that surrounds these areas for the sake of property owners.

Not really. Just a lot of petty thief. shootings all the time. You hear the police sirens, chopper 70% of the time! A few months passed the ice cream driver was robbed at gun point by 4 kids on churchward street.

In Encanto, yes there is. I lived there for 5 yrs. Encanto is on the edge of Lincon Heights. (NOT A NICE PLACE AT ALL) One of the worst gangs in all of San Diego besides Barrio Logan.

I was a bit concerned I drove by a few times over the weekend and the second house on the street had three young men that were hanging out in the front with the garage door open and two of the three were drinking. I noticed this on three different occasions. I'm wondering if the first house on the street was burned down there are people working on it I hope the rehab will be completed soon right now it's an eyesore.

The key words are North Encanto. It is safe and good for family with kids. I live in Emerald Hills over 10 years and is living in North Encanto over 14 years, This is nice.

Hi Laura,
Trulia has a really cool tool- if you click on Local Info and then type in the neighborhood name, it will show you the crime activity in that neighborhood. It will even break down the offeneses into violent vs non violent and what type of offenses they were.

Thanks!
