Crime stats do not show what are safe or dangerous areas; downtowns are often quite safe, even though there's a lot of crime - per person, not so much.
Being out in the middle of nowhere, there might not be much crime, but an opportunist probably has a better chance of committing a crime than they would in a NYC subway.
Ask the neighbors.
As a Realtor we are unable to answer such questions. If you want answers you can contact the local police department or google for crime statistics in the area.
