Dear Diannah

The non emergency phone number for the Anderson Police Department is 765-648-6700. Anderson is blessed to have a very good city wide Neighborhood Crime Watch program. I suggest you ask for the name and number of the Crime Watch Coordinator for that neighborhood so that you may speak with them directly regarding your concerns.

Prospective buyers should scope out a neighborhood at different times during the day and evening, as well as weekends to see what kind of activity is going on in the area, how many children are out, pets on the loose, traffic, etc. Anything that might affect your personal enjoyment and safety.

You can buy a home in a popular neighborhood and have problems. You can also find nice homes in areas that are rumored to be bad but aren't. By doing a little homework and investigation on your own, you will be able to make an informed decision on where to buy.

Buyer feels they are not comfortable recommend search in other areas.

Police Department would have all information required however a Realtor can't make any comments can only direct buyer resources against professional code of ethics.

Have you asked your buyer where they determine facts? Request buyer show you therefore you and question source of info. supplied.

Issues of crime and neighborhood safety are often best referred to the local police department. They have access to the most accurate and current information and are generally very willing to be helpful.
