Hi Lisa, and welcome to Vegas!
As agents we are not allowed to "profile" different areas of town. All we can do is provide you with the Las Vegas crime statistics web site so you can draw your own conclusions.
It's pretty cool once you get used to how it works. To start, simply enter a property address at the top to search. When that specific property's area map opens, you can adjust the criteria by using the tabs above the map for crime types, dates, etc. The date will only go back for the past six months, but if you use the same criteria consistently it will give you a great idea of how much relative crime there is within a certain radius of a given address.
I like to search by zip codes myself. You can plug in the address as "89102, Las Vegas, NV" and pull up everything within a mile radius.
There are lots of master planned communities in the Valley, in both Las Vegas and Henderson, and typically they have parks and walking trails for the residents to enjoy. You didn't say where you were working on the Strip, but you should be able to get Google map driving directions from your job address to determine which neighborhoods would work best for you.
Hope this helps!
