When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local police department with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.

Anna M Brocco answered:
Your best source of information regarding safety is the local police department--why not visit/call and ask all your questions--hear all there is to hear firsthand--if you are not familiar with the area, drive around the neighborhood more than once and at different times of day, look at everything that is important to you and chat with the locals if the opportunity arises and inquire--then make your own determination--keep in mind opinions are often suggestive and what's good for may not necessarily be the case for another. ... more
