Call the local police department, crimereports.com is a good site.

There are several sites that provide this information.  Crime Stoppers USA, Crime Reports, Neighborhood Scout and a host of others.  Anyone of these can provide the information on crime in various areas.

compare your findings to the potential home with where you live right now, to have a bench mark.  

info can be found on "Local Info" tab above but the best source is the local sheriff or police department.

Try this site for crime, demographics, schools, and industry data. This can

be done by Area code, Zip code, County, or State. Very informative!

Good Luck on your search...

Try this website...

Talking to the neighbors would also be able helpful in finding out about that particular neighborhood. 

Good luck with your search.

The above link plus http://spotcrime.com/

http://www.mylocalcrime.com/

http://www.crimemapping.com/map.aspx

You can also go to the police department of the city you are considering and speak to the RSO.  They hopefully should be able to help you with specific neighborhoods.

You probably want to drive the neighborhood at different hours of the day, weekends, speak to neighbors etc.

I'd be weary about any Realtor that gives you any crime information about any neighborhoods.

Good luck,

Naima
