The local police would be the best source of this information. Trulia does have a crime map on their listings, (the last I looked) so that might be a starting place, but get some more specific information on the neighborhood you're interested in from the local police.... more
You can view crime rates etc. online for different areas, but as the others mentioned as Realtors we are not allowed by law to say which areas are safe. Search "crime rates" and what area. Hope this helps.... more
After reading the answers to several agents, they all have great ideas. In the Los Angeles area, there is are a few websites that will break down the type of crimes (i.e. auto theft, burglary, etc.), however, whenever, I've called the local department, for the zip code i'm inquiring, the answers are all very illusive. I am not aware that the general public can specifically find out what type of crimes happened in an area unless you go down to that local station.... more
Im about to seal a deal on a beautiful bright House in Monessen. Its the last house on a treed no-through road on (Parkway Ave) near all amenities and plenty of front of house parking. From bedroom windows you can see the main River and wildlife.. there is forrest & bush surrounding the home no immediate neighbours, a very quiet street. beautiful gardens (which will need basic upkeep) and new Roofs and plumbing. ready to roll.
Not sure how much rent is average for the area. but will find out for you/us
i think it's under $400. per month.... more

Have a good night.
