As Realtors we are not allowed to steer soemone to a particular neighborhood or away from it. And what we may deem as safe you may not... And vice versa.
besides the police knwo how many calls they get for a particular area and what the calls are for...
The best answer to your question will come from the local police. As an agent, we would be liable if we said one area was safe, and you got robbed or another area wasn't safe and homes wouldn't sell as a result of our statement.
The local police are the best independent source of this information and they may even have some online. Best of luck.
