I can tell you Malakoff is a low crime area. We have a house that we are going to sell in the area. Lots of Seniors live in Malakoff and had no problems that i know of. My father lived alone in his home until he died at 91. He lived across from the Middle school on Dewey.
Hello Heather, anytime you have a question about crime in an area, your best bet and more accurate answer is from the the local police department. They are the ones that respond to the calls so they will give you accurate statistics. Also, you would want to drive at different hours through a neighborhood... late at night, in the afternoon and the weekend and you can have an idea of how much activity goes on outside.
