Check with the local police for crime rates as you should with any place you consider moving into. Remember though that statistics only provide a snapshot of what the past rates were. They will not be able to account for any changes in the area or improvements with security or changes that can negatively affect the area.

Cara, Here is the info that we have here on Trulia. If you look at the bottom of the page there is a chart that will give you "Crime Stats" This is the basic info that we get from public sites. This is just an easy place to get an overview. If you would like some thing more detailed I would check with the local police sites or city offices they can give you any details that you need. Remember it is a matter of public record.
