Most every city has it's own local free newspaper, in which they normally have a page that lists all police activity in the area since the last publication. Sometimes called "Police Blog". You can find these newspapers at most local merchants in the area of interest such as supermarkets, 7-11, etc.

When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local police department with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.

Rita gave some good advice to visit the new website. Safety is such a personal choice, it is hard for a Realtor to answer for you.

I do prefer the functionality of the old website, but it looks like the new one is what we have from now on.

You can go to my website and check on the crime mapping area on the left side. This might help answer your questions and concerns.

Hi Peg,
Due to liability a Realtor can't really say if an area is safe or not. There are many resources with crime data statistics. And if it's any comfort, I raise my three small daughters here.
