Depends on the type of crime.

Crime to vehicles is very low. Most vehicles around here aren't worth it.

I do not believe violent crime is terribly high. It seems to come in spurts, starting randomly and ending due to the diligence of Mansfield PD.

It appears much of the crimes are committed by people who know the victim, or even live with them.

In my experience, you cannot leave anything unlocked. Don't leave a car unlocked, window cracked or the classic Mansfield plasticwrap over a broken window.

It used to be that you would feel safe walking at night alone anywhere in the entire city. That is almost still tue; however, when those random burst of crime flare up... this is almost always someone "new" moving into the area, and a month or so later, you will be treated to the sight of Mansfield PD. It's usually a group of the same people, and Mansfield is too small for them to hide.

Mansfield is a safe place with some diligence on your part. You are far, far more likely to have a run in with a heroin addict than anything else.

Each one of your sensors is a zone. Your front door is probably zone 1. So if your front door is kicked in you will have a burglary zone 1. Your zone 4 could be another contact such as a window that was opened or a motion sensor that went off. ... more

I've been here all my life, I found when you get robbed its by someone you know, mainly because you let them in your business to often. I raised a 28 year old son, whom graduated from college with honors and he's a Physically major minor in Marketing. I love my neighbor, we wave and talk to each other but we're not up in each other's home, we do watch out for each other. I took a test one day and asked a neighbor has anyone been over my house today she said yes and gave me four different car's and how often they came over, who knew ? We take in garbage cans, put lg. Packages on their back porch, snow blow your neighbors driveway's when mine was down, bringing in each other's mail when it's hanging out the mail box. We even feed each other when needed, we help take care of another's sick child, and no it's not a dream you just have to pick your neighbor. Thank You ... more

My family and I have lived in Delaware for 27 years. I truly don't think the 40 some rape statistics is correct. I have only heard of a couple in all the years we've lived here and, I raised 4 children here, 3 are very pretty girls. Just to be sure though, I would take Anna Brocco's advice. Now, we have had many car break-in's. We've had our car's broke in twice. I just don't keep anything valuable in cars and we keep them unlocked. That way they don't break our window's. Oh and we live in Lantern Chase, west of Grady hospital, behind Kroger's. I hope this helps? Good luck. ... more

I think you should invest in a home in Cleveland Heights or Shaker Heights. Only the areas along the Cleveland border have crime, but there are lots of police around this area, much more than in a neighborhood in downtown Cleveland. The Southern part of Cleveland Heights is very nice, and there are many places to eat around Coventry Rd, and Lee Rd. Shaker Heights is very safe, and has a very good police force, as well as Cleveland Heights. The schools are very diverse and are very good. Shaker Heights is more residential, and some parts are much newer, especially towards Beachwood. Overall, both suburbs are a good to live in, and are very close to places to eat, and shop. There are many places nearby like Beachwood Place Mall, and Legacy Village, at Richmond and Cedar Road. There are is also shopping centers at Cedar and Warrensville Center, where there are chain food places, Macy's, Target, Whole Foods, and other shops. There is also a close proximity to downtown, and the Shaker Lakes parks. ... more
