You should consult directly with the Lawrence Police Department. They are the law enforcement experts in Lawrence. You can make an appointment telling them that you are interested in moving into their community and are more than glad to assist you. They can give a clearer picture of what the statistics mean. Another is to go to the section and speak to the police that actually work in that section and ask them what types of crimes they see, what types of enforcement are in effect. Getting the word from those on the front lines and experienced law enforcement are invaluable and most accurate.
