I love using a site like Sometimes they have past historic info that you might be looking for, other times they might not. Try going to or searching the zip code you're looking for and see if they have crime stats on there. ... more

Barry Jedburgh answered:

Pueblo West would be a great choice! Unfortunately, there is often a common mistake of combining Pueblo West with the City of Pueblo demographic, education, and crime data. Technically Pueblo West (81007 zip code) is not a suburb of the City of Pueblo and it was never intended to be by our founder Mr. Robert P. McCulloch, Sr. Although a number of our residents work in the City of Pueblo, we are our own separate local government with separate elected officials. Pueblo West is part of the D70 school system and has the highest academically ranked high school in the County and an incredibly successful athletic program. Pueblo West also has significantly lower violent crime than the City of Pueblo, higher income and education level per capita, and we reside directly next to Lake Pueblo State Park with an incredible view of the mountain vistas. ... more

Mr. Landy, anyone who knows anything about your beautiful neighborhood The Preserve at GV will know that there are no meth dealings anywhere in the neighborhood. However, I understand your concern. Unfortunately the problem with these real estate websites is that there are no true, valuable, reliable, and consistent websites. That's why buyers and sellers find value in a Realtor who knows the area and will properly guide buyers and sellers in the right direction.

To anyone looking to find accurate crime statistics, I suggest you take a look at

What is it you're wondering about? Keep in mind, agents are prohibited from commenting on crime/safety or racial makeup of a neighborhood. It's best to do your own research using the city or county websites.

Contact a local Realtor for assistance. You can go above to the agent directory to choose an agent by reading specialties and reviews from past clients.

Good luck!

I can tell you the best option for you to do is check with Colorado SPrings Police Department by calling their non emergancy number and get the crime rates.

Richard Pinckney answered:

Fair housing laws, which protect individuals as well as communities, prevent agents from giving their opinion on anything not directly related to a home. Our opinion on the amount of crime or whether or not an area is "bad" can be misinterpreted as steering people to or from a certain community. That said, you can and should check with the Aurora police department and neighborhood reporting websites to decide if the area you are interested in is a place you want to live.

Here are just some resources you can use to get started:

Good Luck!

Terry Naber answered:
Last time I checked the stats, Colorado Springs has a lower-that-average crime rate for cities of its size. I can honestly say there is no where in town that I would not walk in the daytime, and very few areas I would not walk at night.

In addition to checking with law enforcement, you can also knock of the doors of neighbors in areas of houses you really like-ask if they or their neighbors have had problems with crime. You have certain amount of time to investigate (the inspection objection period) the neighborhood and home after you are under contract. Also, look for a home that is not on or near a busy street, close to high-density apartment buildings or large retail centers. Location within the neighborhood can increase or decrease your chances of being hit with a crime. Choose a home that is tucked inside a neighborhood rather than on the outskirts. A cul-de-sac location might be safer as well-criminals want more than one way out in case they have to flee quickly. Being across the street from a school might make you more vulnerable to vandalism. Look around the neighborhood-are there a lot of burglar bars on the windows? That might be clue, but if 1 or 2 have them, it may just mean that those owners are paranoid!

Happy home hunting!

Sorry for the typos in my posting below!

To "Flag" a listing, look below the photos. You'll see several options, including "More" in blue font. Click on "More" and you'll get a dropdown menu. The last option is "Flag". Select this and Trulia gives you the option to flag the listing and provide more details.

Good luck everyone!

Dan Tabit answered:
I agree with my colleagues, check with the local police for the most reliable crime information. I looked at the listing you attached and also suggest you make sure you are dealing with the legitimate owner of the property. There are scams on this and many others sites. Whatever you do, don't send money hoping to get keys back in the mail. It just doesn't happen. ... more
