It is a fact that criminals do not (in most cases) live in the areas they commit their crimes.....there is crime everywhere, some crimes (many times) of opportunity....some area may have less crimes than other areas...A Gated community can address some of your concerns..... more
You can call the local police department and they can give you crime statistics on the area you are interested in. You may want to speak to the neighbors too and drive by during the day, evening ang weekend. I hope this helps!
