Hi There,

Besides finding out the crime statistics, a really good way to feel out a neighborhood is to go there and feel it out in person. Go there and walk around on a weekend and weekday - and evening. Talk to the neighbors that are out, they usually love to talk. Go grocery shopping there or visit a local restaurant. Otay Mesa is composed of different neighborhoods, so be sure you check them all out.

You can also sign up for crime alerts on the City of San Diego Police Dept. website for a particular address too. That way you'll know what types of crimes have been committed in the a couple of different areas, and you can choose which types of crimes to be notified about.

Hope this helps!

Warm Regards,

These are 2 sites that I recommend to my clients. Also check the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department Imperial Beach Station. The Imperial Beach Station is located at 845 Imperial Beach Boulevard, in the City of Imperial Beach
I also suggest that they go t the Megan's Law site to check for sex offenders.

If you would like for me to help you find a home I would be glad to work with you.

I am never too busy for your referrals
