Is crime an issue in San Rafael?

Asked by Stephan, San Francisco, CA Mon Apr 23, 2007

How safe is it or does it feel to walk around? And, is this the case across the city, or are there differences in different areas?

It seems all statistics are for the city as a whole, not a hole - ha ha. Anyway, "… links to history 1999-2004, "" gives you 2006 and a national comparison. But, big but, the variation from neighborhood to neighborhood is enormous. I recommend you find a property then check it. If you get that far talk with the San Rafael Polic Department.

Facts aside I think Eduardo is dead on.

That's like asking if there is a lot of crime in Beverly Hills, and if it's a nice neighborhood...:)

As I mentioned above, there are a few pockets where crime is more prevalent, close to the city center and in the lower income areas, but on the whole, I think compared to other parts of the country there is very little crime. And yes, it feels safe to walk around the city.
