If a Realtor is familiar with that area, and they tell you,
Yes, it is a low-crime area, or they tell you,
No, it is a bad area for crime;
Either way they can be held accountable, and get in trouble.
This is a question that you should ask the local police: It is their job and their responsability.
And they won't get into trouble for answering you.
Good luck and may God bless
