Hello Matt,

The best source of information will be the local police department that patrols that particular zip code for town specific crime questions. If there is a specific area or neighborhood that interest you go ask the neighbors, what they think of that neighborhood? Check out this site http://www.factfinder.census.gov

I live in north phoenix. I like it. 85020 zipcode is right next to north mountain, which has several nice hiking trails and pavilions for bbqs as well. It is a beautiful area.

I like it when people do their do diligence.. and crime/safety is certainly part of that. I've attached a map that shows crime stats in 85020. It may help you. We often have our clients call the Phoenix Police department and talk to a neighborhood specialist.

If you would like to take a little tour of 85020, I'd be happy to drive you around the neighborhood... since my office in in 85020, I do know the area very well.

Hope this has been helpful... Gene

I agree with the other realtors. that can be interpreted in many ways the meaning of Safe. I would suggest as well the buyers advisory guide.

Matt,
Since safe may mean something different to different people we here in Arizona have a living document called the Buyer Advisory (http://www.aaronline.com/documents/buy_advis.pdf). It has links to assist you in gathering information about communities including factors that will help you make informed decisions about safety.
