Safety is such a subjective topic because some people feel safe in areas where others do not, and vice versa. The best way to answer this question is to see the crime statistics yourself, which is very easy to do! Here is a great link that I send my clients so they can see for themselves exactly when and what types of crimes are perpetrated in any area of LA:
Just enter the property address, or go to this page to see all of Highland Park crime:
This is a great website that will show the exact type of crime and date on the map & slider bar (which you can drag to see past dates- research as far back as you'd like!), and if you click on a marker on the map it will give you the exact address and time of day the crime was reported. Please let me know if you need any further help and I will be happy to assist.
What a coincidence you are writing from Dimondale! I grew up in London, Ontario and went to college in Windsor, ONT. :)
