For the most accurate data, check the govt website of the city you are interested in and they should have a section for the Police Dept, in there they will either publish crime data or tell you which online service they publish their data to.

Most cities in CA publish data online these days.

Hello, is my favorite crime reporting website. It allows you to type in an address to look up crime in the neighborhood. It looks like there haven't been any reported crimes within a mile of this home in the past 6 months.

I'd be happy to help you get more information on this home or others like it if you'd like.

Hope this helps!

You can see individual crime statistics by date of occurance for 94954 by going to this site and entering the zip code. The data seems to go back about 6 months.

This other site shows crime statistics for 94954 verses the national average. Petaluma crime is lower than the national average.

Hi Barbara: There's a website called RAIDS Online that you can check.... It's got official reports on criminal activity.
If you need any additional information about real estate in this part of Santa Rosa, contact me. I'm a 4th generation Sonoma County property owner and 10-year licensed agent. I'd be happy to help.

Hi Audrey,

Its been such a buyers market and continues to be here in Petaluma and Sonoma county. I work directly on an REO sales team. We have a continuing supply and some of these homes in your price range are really great deals. Let me know if you would like a list of what we have or what is coming!

Hi Elizabeth, you should really check with the local police and sheriffs departments for this data. They will have the most accurate information. A realtor can't really give you a fully "legal" opinion on this issue for a variety of reasons related to real estate laws and professional liability.

If you could use a referral for a really great agent in your area, please contact me through the trulia form.

Hi Summer, You should be excited about purchaseing a home. We have a very large inventory of available home in Santa Rosa and quite a few that are excellent deals. Santa Rosa covers a pretty large area. Yes some parts are less desireable then others but that said there are quite a few areas that I would not be concerned moving my grandmother into. I do believe that what you hear about in the paper, on the radio and tv is blown out of proportion as that is how media works they have to sensationalize to get and keep the publics attention. You can always contact the Santa Rosa Police Department or the Sonoma County Sheriffs Dept depending on which part of Santa Rosa and discuss crime statistics. Every community has information available to the public regarding crime at the local law inforcement offices.

If you already have a Realtor representing you he/she should be able to help you with where to go to find crime related information for the area. If you do not have a Realtor representing you then you need to find one. Everyone deserves to & should be represented by a trustworthy & knowledgeable agent that has experience assisting buyers in the area they are looking to buy in.

Steve answered:
If you view the town as intersected by Hwy 101 and Hwy 12 created four quardrants, avoid the SE quarter almost entirely (lots of newly developed units in there with some nice pockets, but area as a whole has issues). Avoid the SW corner near the 101 (further west is fine). The upper half of the NW corner is fine, and most of the NE corner is fine above 4th Street.

That's just a general guide. If you find something specific you're interested in, look for stats for that area.

Janet Greninger answered:
There are homes available in this price range in other areas of Sonoma County as well; perhaps in areas where you do have friends living - I'd suggest you shop all areas to get a feel for some other areas and then you can compare to Anteeo area; also, consider driving through this area at different times of the week to get a feel for obvious activity that may be present. ... more

The best resource for questions of safety are the local police or the county sheriff's department. They have access to the most current and accurate information and are generally very willing to be helpful.

Good luck

Ellen Chung answered:
Sorry for the lateness of this reply but in case you were still researching this topic I thought I'd provide a few helpful links that give you some statistical information. It looks like Santa Rosa's crime rates when averaging all the different types of crime (violent & property) are about average or "on par" with the rest of the nation. For some actual numbers: ... more
