As a Realtor we are not allowed to steer a client toward one neighborhood or away from a neighborhood. We can provide you with links of places to visit to get the information but as a realtor we are bound by a certain code of ethics and this question violates that.
besides, what one person may consider as minor another person could view ti as a major issue for the area. So the best idea is to get the statistics and for you to decide whether it si safe for your children ro not.
The best place to go for thsi information is the Charlotte mecklenburg police department website. Here is a link: http://charmeck.org/city/charlotte/cmpd/Pages/default.aspx. On the drop menu bar on the top go to your safety then click on crime mapping ro crime statisitics....
This should give you the information you are looking for to make a descsion....Wish I could be of more help...
