As realtors, we are not supposed to discuss safety of any particular area.
Check out neighborhoodscout.com, homefair.com,crimereports,movoto.com,spotcrime.com for the crime info. You can also check the area where you are living now (if statistics are similar, then the new area should be similar to where you are now).
Also, it's great to drive by the area in question at night - to get a feeling for the vibe there.
Hope this helps,
Beachfront Realty, Inc.
