By law Realtors are not allowed to give details to crime in one area or neighborhood, and the same goes for good schools etc., safety etc., the reason is that by law the personal opinion of a Realtor could be understood to be steering, which is against the law.... What Realtors can do is guide clients to the appropriate website in their area, where they can get information about the schools, school report cards, neighborhood and town information and also crime statistics... As a buyer you really need to do your own due diligence to make sure that an area, town, suburbs or neighborhood meets with your likes and is right for you and your family.
I always also suggest to my buyers, to drive themselves through the neighborhoods at different times of the day, a different days of the week to get a better feeling for an area if they have not lived close by before. As a buyer worried about safety a short trip to the nearest police station gets you good information there...
Hope this helps, many of the above website you can find by just using google search.
