One of the biggest considerations a family reflects on when moving to another home is the community where it is situated. Certainly, no one would want to live in an area that is not safe, and where people behave unruly, and crime rates are high.

Step 1:

Research on the Internet. Research on your community safety, and security through the Internet. There are a growing number of sites that integrate crime statistics into informative text and include maps which can be searched by date, location, and the type of crime. Also, prime reports on home security system signals, directed to police stations, are also recorded; these can give you additional information.

Step 2:

Ask local authorities. Visit the police station first. By doing so, you can better your research by asking them actual hand-to-hand information regarding the crime rate in the area. Also, be aware if the neighborhood has ready- installed security systems in the perimeter, such surveillance cameras and fire alarm systems for security purposes. This is a BIG plus!

Step 3:

Talk to the residents. You can ask them what it was like for them living in the community. Surely they’ll have more than enough information that you need since they have already experience living in the area.
