Is crime an issue in Fairfax?

Asked by J.P., Tampa, FL Mon Apr 23, 2007

How safe is it or does it feel to walk around? And, is this the case across the city, or are there differences in different areas?

Your best resource for information about crime is the local police or sheriffs department. Sometimes they will have a web site with the information, otherwise you can contact them and ask for a report about specific neighborhoods you may be interested in.

I have lived in Fairfax since the 1970's and I have never felt unsafe walking anywhere at any time of day or night in Fairfax. The very idea of it being unsafe here feels almost ? ? ? is a very safe area.......

Crime is an issue everywhere. Basically, you must be aware and not compromise you or your family by going to places in the evenings that you don't know. Hence, don't stray off the path if you don't know where you are going. In general, Fairfax is family friendly and safe.

Hi J.P.

Fairfax is the Berkeley of Marin. Crime are you kidding me, very little unless you consider a little pot smoking and hippie dancing a crime.

The town of Fairfax is a very safe place to live. Children can play on the street, walking downtown for dinner at night, and running in the early morning are all safe. No need to feel like you are being stalked.

Crime is not a significant issue in Fairfax, other than occassional trouble from someone who has had a bit too much to drink in one of the bars.
