If you're interested in the crime rate in DeKalb county, I strongly recommend the http://www.crimemapping.com web site. The DeKalb county police department forwards information about all crimes to the crimemapping.com site where you can see individual incidents mapped. You can even sign up for e-mail alerts about crime in a specific area. Now, this service only works for unincorporated areas of DeKalb county, so those parts that are inside the City of Decatur or inside the City of Atlanta (including much of Druid Hills) are not covered by this service. The City of Atlanta does have a somewhat similar service that you can access at: http://www.atlantapd.org/index.asp?nav=map .

Lisa always gets my thumbs up - Lisa knows the data, and internet sources for data, better than most.

I've always liked spotcrime.com, and they list all of the Atlanta neighborhoods which have specifically mapped records for crime at the link that I placed in the web reference. Lisa's two links are solid sources too.

No specific Druid Hills link - maybe because crime is refreshingly light over there...I don't know...

My friend Mark is the PTA President at Fernbank ES, and a long time Druid Hills dweller - he'll chat you up if you want a street level perspective. Just email me and I'll connect the two of you.

Nancy,

Are you asking about the Druid Hills area or Druid Hills high school? I live in the area, grew up in the area and my children go to Druid HIlls. Feel free to ask me any questions.
