Jonesborough would probably be safer than Johnson City. The Gray/Boone's Creek area would be pretty safe as well.

Churches and schools are trying to help, but it would help equally I believe to have counseling programs for the parents/families to better understand how to survive and cope with the stress of changing communities.38115 is so far above the national average with violent and non-violent crime that more needs to be done in many areas. The family unit needs to be stronger so it can sustain during the tough times.

The stress around unemployment, keeping up with your bills, keeping your kids safe and getting them on the right track for their future is overwhelming for many - also living in fear not knowing if it is safe to go outside like in the past. As a community, the churches could do more to help in this regard which may have a positive effect on the crime rate over time.

I, too, would suggest doing your own research into the area, speaking with people who currently live there, and determining your own level of comfort when it comes to safety. However, online crime rating sites don't give it good ratings. gives it an F for crime rate. I would also suggest checking sites such as and Trulia's property overview for the area ( Best of luck in your home search! ... more

I know that some communities have security systems set up. However, since some don't, I would say that you should probably check with the community to see if they do. And then if they don't provide any services, I'm sure it wouldn't be too difficult to get something installed in your home to help with your security! ... more

The answer you got is not accurate. I live in Crossville. There have been several murders. If you check with the county sheriff's department you will also see that Cumberland County has a huge problems with drugs, prescription and meth. There IS no Utopia but whomever answered the question previously, perhaps thought they were giving accurate information but they indeed were not. There was a murder just around the corner from me last October which just went to trial last week and there was a triple murder in Crab Orchard, 20 minutes away over the winter. Check with more credible sources: The POLICE DEPT. ... more

The Lakewood Park area isn't bad. Lakewood Park, on the other hand, is a place to be really careful with. I'm not sure if I had a client that had a family if I would feel good about locating them in Lakewood Park. There are many, many other areas that would be a better fit. ... more

We moved to a townhome on Peabody Drive in June 2013 and are so sorry that we chose this area. It is noisy, constant parties, loud and crudely obscene musicblasting until wee hours of the morning. We have had the police here almost daily, even knocking on our door by mistake to respond to a complaint made by someone.

We are a retired married couple and this is only a temporary arrangement for us. We will be moving to California in the fall and will be so glad to get out of here! The day we looked at looked at this rental the streets were quiet but it was definitely NOT a representation of the status of this area. Our very first night in our new home a street fight between two black women resulted in several police cars out front in the middle of the night. I knew then that this was a bad choice and was very sorry the property management agent had not tried to at least suggest that this area might not be the best choice. He could have steered us to one of his properties in another neighborhood of which he had several available but he didn't.

If you want a nice area to live in that is safe and quiet, DO NOT MOVE here!!!
