I have lived in Lancaster over 20 years, 12 years at my current residence. I have not had a problem being a victim of crime.

To find the answer to your question you will need to do some research. Several good websites were provided in the comments below. You could also speak with the local police force.

When moving to a new neighborhood, visit the area and ask question of the people living there.

I moved to Lancaster in 2006 and have never had any problems with crime. I have never felt unsafe during my time here. Lancaster is a nice, growing community with a variety of different neighborhoods to choose from.

I was robbed 3 times before moving into my house here in Lancaster. I lost over $3000.00 worth of tools that I was using to fix the house before moving in. I took drastic, security measures and haven't been broken into since. The city is now after me for breaking the code ordinances. If I knew, then, what I know now, I would have NEVER moved here.

Hi Juanita,

Yea joe is correct.

We are not allow to say whether its a safe area to live in or not as Realtors. Its against fair housing law.

Please check with http://www.crimereports.com for crime stats.

Good luck
