I lived in Schumacher Place (which is the neighborhood to the east and adjacent to German Village) for 12 years and was never broken into. The majority of crimes it seems are car break-ins where the owner of the car left something in view and someone walking by decided they wanted it. The key is due diligence in your own safety. Don't leave things in view in your car, don't leave the house unlocked when you aren't home, stuff like that. Also, my experience was the neighbors really kept an eye out for each other.
