Violent crimes are rare, and most citizens are in complete shock when one happens. The majority are petty crimes like theft, possession of drugs, vandalism, etc. Overall, and in comparison to other areas, I think it's a pretty safe place to live.
I have always lived here in Clark County. I have never been robbed, or been involved or a victim of any crime here in Vancouver. In fact alot of us here don't even lock our doors. I have always felt safe here and I suppose every town has it's crimes and misfortunes, however this area at least has been very good to me and my family.
If you want real statistics I can get links to you for that. I wouldn't live anywhere else.
Portland does tend to have a bit of a problem though. Just depends on the area.
You can find some Vancouver statistics like this on my website: Click on About Vancouver. It should give you the stats you are seeking. If you are thinking about moving here you can use my site to help you familarize yourself with our beautiful area here.
Good luck with your searching and contact me if you have any further questions. Lifetime native here.

The truth is, most crime is committed within and towards one own group. Whether social, economic, or other demographic, most crime it against someone they know. Random acts of violence are generally much more rare.
I would go so far as to say...in Vancouver, you are more likely to experience a random act of kindness, than a random act of violence. While not careless by any means, I absolutely do not live in fear of theft or violence....and might even forget to lock my car in the grocery parking lot.
