Always good to check out with the offical web site of the local and county deptments. They all have great record systems. i am a local Angleton person and have lived in Brazoria county off and on all my life. It has never been know for a high crime rate. It is still a small town in the shadow of Hoston and Galveston so you have the best of both worlds. Everything a person can want is less than a hour away yet you live in a small town with great schools.
