I suggest signing up for the email alerts from free services like spotcrime.com (the Rowland Report from 11Alive news) and enter the address and area and you will get emails of the crimes, I do this alot when checking out new areas and want the daily crime report. Also check out watchdog.
I've sold in the Highlands too and it's a lifestyle, great city location. I live close by in 30319 and yes, there is crime in the city, be safe and buy smart! Brockbuilt is a wonderul product & building team.
