Like any large city, Charlotte does have some bad areas but overall, I wouldn't say that the suburbs are a safety concern. However, I always find it best for my clients to make up their own mind. Therefore, here's a link to the Town of Huntersville police website and to their crime stats: http://www.huntersville.org/downloads/police/policestats.pdf
If you end up in Davidson, Mooresville or Cornelius, they also can provide you with those same stats on their websites as well or by calling the local department.
There is also another great tool on http://www.moving.com and there, you can find detailed stats on the city you are moving to and even the ability to compare that city to any other city or even to your own. I found that most helpful when I moved to Charlotte because I didn't want a city too different from Annapolis, MD (my former hometown).
Hope this was helpful.
