I assume you are asking about the crime rate, because, in my mind, all crime rates badly. As a Realtor I risk stiff fines, and loss of my license if I give an opinion about crime in a specific location. I can however suggest you do research on the internet. Google the local police department and see if their website offers information about crime. APD has a very good website at http://www.atlantapd.org/findmyzone.aspx or check out Trulia Local's own crime heat map at http://www.trulia.com/local/#crimes/atlanta-ga

Realtors cannot legally speak on crime rate. I would suggest contacting the local authorities to ask. Also I recommend previewing the area to make sure it is a place where you are comfortable.
