If your looking for the best answer... the local boston police station in west roxbury could give you the best information. I tell all buyers that I work with to visit the local police station!... more
Brokers are not supposed to give their opinions about the safety of an area. I'm sure you have read the good advice below to check the crime stats and local police. Just want to add that I live in Roslindale with two children and so far it has been great! Convenient to the city, and plenty of programs for children through the Roslindale Community Center, plus many more programs available in West Roxbury and Hyde Park for Roslindale residents.
Best of luck,
One of the best resources for neighborhood crime and safety is the local police department or county sheriff's department. They have access to the most current and accurate information and are generally very willing to be helpful.
