Hi! This is more difficult to answer than you might think. One person's perception of a lot could be different than the next.
Comparing to the state average is a good idea. I've seen statistics for the entire county that show that some crimes are lower in our county than statewide, and other crimes are slightly higher. But, again, this can confuse your perception. Statistics are calculated different ways, and sometimes what one county counts as a crime, another county counts as a misdemeanor. There are also more crimes in some areas of the county versus other areas.
I know that doesn't help much, but if you could let us know what about the crime issue is important to you, we might be able to answer your question better.
