You have not submitted any information about the neighborhood's specific location, but here's a website that breaks down crime stats by Zip Code. http://houstoncrimemaps.com/zip/
As Realtors, we're not permitted to comment on whether an area is "safe." In addition to viewing sites such as the one above, you should drive through the neighborhood at different times of day, just to get the feel of it. You should also stop and talk to people ... they'll tell you flat out, whether it be good, bad or ugly.
If I can be of further assistance, please feel free to contact me at (713) 213-6350 or ... firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to hearing from you.
