Hi Sheila, we as Realtors are not permitted to discuss safety as it could be construed as steering you toward one area or another; and blacklisting that neighborhood. I would recommend you Google the area and call the local police department. I believe if you Google "crime reports" and the zip code, you should find a website with reports.
Hope this helps! If you are serious about finding a home in this general area, contact me!
