I've lived in the Village Green for 12 years and I and I'm pretty sure nearly all of my neighbors feel perfectly safe here. If you click through to the Trulia crime maps, you'll see that there isn't any significant crime that happens within the Village Green itself, or in the immediately adjacent neighborhoods. Inside the Village Green, we are mostly older retired people and young professional families. To the south, there is a quiet hillside residential neighborhood and then the Kenneth Hahn Park. To the west, there is a major commercial center (Target) and then the super-hot (and safe) Hayden Tract and Culver City Arts District. To the north there is a quiet residential neighborhood hemmed in as a big cul-de-sac by the Expo Line tracks (very safe). To the east, there is the rapidly gentrifying Leimert Park neighborhood. The only semi-dangerous neighborhood nearby is the Baldwin Village area (a.k.a. "the Jungle") a few blocks away to the southeast, which in years past was notorious for gangs and drugs, but has since quieted down significantly. We do also have 24-hour security provided by the HOA that helps to keep a close watch on things, but it's safe regardless. The worst that we suffer is the occasional car break-in on the perimeter.
