I know is it challenging for a buyer to not get an answer to a question. It's difficult for Realtors to answer "Is it safe for a single female?" What one single female may feel comfortable with, another may not. Law prohibits real estate agents from steering, and labeling an area as "unsafe" may be construed as steering. For this reason, Realtors will point you to independent sources of data.
I definitley suggest that you pick up the phone can call the police station that patrols the area of the property. Talk w/ them and ask them where police blotter reports are printed. Read those. Ask the police dept questions.
Use online sources for data....but keep in mind if you google for crime stats and Camden, the reports will average data. It may or may reflect the area of your interest. The area of your interest could reflect statistics that are upwards or downwards.
Best of luck!
