This is a question that a Realtor is not able to answer. It is best to call the Bakersfield Police Department and ask that question.
Also, I see that Sheryl , lender who answered below, gave a website you can view for statistics.
If there are neighborhoods that you are interested in living, you should drive those neighborhoods. Drive them at different times of the day/ night and go on a weekday or two as well as weekends. That will be your best determination.
Should you have further questions, feel free to contact me directly.
