That is a great question that we are asked often. I encourage you to review the Durham Crime Mapper link: http://gisweb.durhamnc.gov/gis_apps/crimedata/dsp_entryform.cfm Contact the Durham Police Department at their non emergency number (919) 560-4600 and meet some neighbors. Let me know if you have additional questions. Best of Luck!
You may discover crime statistics for any area of Durham by accessing the Durham County Sheriffs website. It would be more informative for you to access this website your self rather than me passing information along on a second hand basis.
Please call me if you want to take a look inside the property.
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.
