I second much of what the other realtors have said. That feeling of security varies widely by individual. It would be very presumptuous of me to define that feeling for you, but there are several tools available to help you make your decision. I would definitely check the online sex offender registries. Chattanooga Police department and Hamilton Co both have overall crime statistics.

This is a very difficult question to answer. What is "SAFE" ? Everyone has their own ideas of what being "SAFE' means to them. The location next to creeks, lakes, cliffs, parks/recreations areas, traffic count, size of street and speed limits, and are there are sidewalks, curbs and street lights are just some factors to consider along with the crime rates and reports found at the http://www.chattanooga.gov website. In addition the choice of friends, playgrounds, and community involvement are all factors that influence safety. One thing to consider if you have concerns is to look at the Tennessee sex offender registry, http://www.tbi.state.tn.us/sex_ofender_reg/sex_ofender_reg.shtml . While no community is the perfect safe place to live and be crime free, taken some precautions to determine if a neighborhood is acceptable to you is a smart thing to do, but don't just take someone’s word for it! What I may think is a great place to live may be different from what you think! So best advice is to park your car at various times of the day in the neighborhood and observe the community in action. Get out of the car and visit with the neighbors ask them about the area, how long have they lived there, what have they observed and what is their experience in the everyday living that they have had.

Yes, if you visit http://www.chattanooga.gov there is a link for the Police Dept. You can follow the instructions from there. Good Luck with your home search.
