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. http://www.neighborhoodscout.com/ https://www.crimereports.com/ http://www.homefair.com/
I recommend to my buyers if they are unsure about the safety of a particular area to contact the local police department, check out RAIDS.com, and also driving through the neighborhood you're interested in at varying times of day will give you a great idea of what it would be like to live there.
