"Feeling safe" is a relative term to most people. One person's idea of a safe neighborhood can differ greatly from another based upon their experience. As Realtors, we are discouraged from making generalized statements about neighborhoods and crime rates, as we are not considered "experts" who can give this type on information. This is why you are receiving referral information to contact the local police department for more detailed information. The only problem is that most police personnel do not feel comfortable making generalized statements about the crime or safety of a neighborhood, as crime trends can often be short-lived and give the wrong impression.
The location that you have questions about lies within the North Service Area of the Grand Rapids Police Department, one of the most professional law enforcement organizations in the nation. The commander of this area is Captain Pete McWatters (616-456-3877). They have developed a crime mapping tool for your use. It is located at http://grcity.us/police-department/Pages/Crime-Mapping.aspx.
It is a fairly user-simple interface.
