The best source for this information is the local police department or the county sheriff's department. they have assess to the most current and reliable information and are normally very willing to be helpful.
That is a valid concern and one that is on the minds of many people when relocating to a new area. If you would like to see the crime statistics in that city and other cites you can go to my website at http://www.mgrimm4homes.com. At my website, you can select any city or if you prefer, you can look up crime statistics by zip code. And you can do it 24 hours a day seven days a week from the comfort of your own home. I would recommend taking this approach and checking out several cities or zip codes.
