I liked to use Sperlings Best Places To Live as both a buyer, seller and sometimes even as a Realtor. It is a user friendly site that allows you to compare different cities with where you live, where you would like to live or even just find a similar city to your present location within a different state. I belive the correct site link is: http://www.bestplaces.net.

There are a few great resources around. I think it is best to contact your Community Resource Officer or CRO at the police department. Just call the main non-emergency number and ask to be connected to the CRO. They’re normally very aware of the good and bad areas of the area and can normally give you local statistics. You can also check out http://www.ojp.usdoj.gov/bjs/ which provides stats based on the FBI uniform crime reports. You might also visit the FBI stats site at http://www.fbi.gov/ucr/ucr.htm#cius. Another place to checkout is http://www.Crimeweb.net . Hope this is of you to you.
