Safe to one is unsafe to another.
Drive the neighborhoods and look.
Ask people walking around what they think.
Park your car and see if anyone notices you sitting in your car.
Walk around and talk to those who are in the neighborhood.
Interview the local principal, coaches, convenience store employees, police getting coffee, ....

There is a lot you can do for yourself.

I would also contact a local real estate professional to save time and money.

I agree with Laura. Your best source is your local authorities and sometimes local police websites show this information as well.

Overall, Boston is a wonderful and safe city! When compared to other American cities, we have very few bad neighborhoods, at all. I have lived in West Roxbury and found it safe, friendly, and cluttered with nice little restaurants. Look at a map to see the actual location of West Roxbury, it may not be located where you expect it to be!

I can't comment on the area itself, however the crime statistics will be helpful in making this decision. In addition to the crime statistics posted online, I recommend talking to the local police as well who can give you more insight regarding safety.

If you would like to discuss personally, please feel free to call me directly at 203-280-3838

Thank You

When inquiring about crime statistics, real estate agents by law are not allowed to comment on safety in neighborhoods. I suggest that you contact the local police to hear the amount and types of crime activity so as to hear it first hand.

Here are a couple of links to crime statistics in West Roxbury that you may find helpful:
