Like someone mentioned below, the best way to know the neighborhood is to drive through it. There is a police station right at the entrance to the community and police cars patrol the area all the time. All I can say is that should the crime happen they would make it there fast. Sailboat Bend is not a very family oriented community. I would recommend Plantation, Weston, Pembroke Pines. They all have A rated schools. If you want to stay closer to the beach look at Coral Ridge area, anything along Bayview Drive and Rio Vista.
