The most efficient, and reliable way is too call Lakeland police depart. But they're are a couple sites that can give you a general idea. I've attached one in the web references. Another is melissadata, it isn't completely up to date (2008).
Also, sex offenders, can be viewed accurately at http://offender.fdle.state.fl.us/offender/searchNeighborhood.do?actionPerformed=neighborhoodSearchMain
I'm very familiar with the area, call me if you have any questions.

www.PolkSheriff.org lists recent crime alerts. Nothing was listed as a crime watch problem for that area as far back as 11-07. In the 90's that was a high crime - drug area. I know they cleaned it up since then, but haven't heard anything about the area recently to know if it stayed clean or reverted to drug area. There is a local substation of the County Sheriff's dept at the Medulla COPS Station - Medulla Community Center Phone (863)-499-2400 that should be able to provide you with more local information.
