I feel completely safe. I could go out for a jog alone at night if I wanted to. But then, I live in a suburb. I probably wouldn’t want to walk through the park alone at night.

I live in a small college town. I consider it very safe and I regularly walk my dog alone at night.

I definitely bought my house with safety/schools in mind.  It sort of all goes hand in hand imo cause usually better schools -> more expensive area -> generally safer.  The most interesting blurb in the police section of my town in the last few months is reports of a vandalized mailbox.  My friend that lives here also was getting a ride  home from a cop cause he locked his car keys in the car at a park and heard the dispatcher radioing for a cop to “talk to some kids over on xxx road that are using foul language”.  So not too worried, but still always cautious… in reality anything can happen at anytime anywhere.

Yeah, I live in a old-people neighborhood (seriously, there is so many old people here, b/c the neighborhood association makes people pay a fee for their lawn to be mowed and snow plowed, so the old people love living here cuz they don’t have to worry about that themselves. We can hardly wait to try and sell this house next year!) Anyhow, and we live in a very safe, small, city in the suburbs. It’s almost annoying sometimes, cuz the police dont have much to do, so you actually have to worry about them harassing you for stupid things like jaywalking. (I guess I’d rather this than live somewhere not safe…so I’m not complaining.)

We live in the suburbs… and part of our decision to buy a house where we did was the extremely low crime rate. Our neighborhood is gated with an attendant that takes down the license plate # and name of every car that comes in, so I feel safe here… I’d feel safe running alone, even after dark.

Relatively. I live in a big city, and near an interstate, so there are a fair number of car thefts and burglaries. During the day I feel perfectly safe, but I wouldn’t wander around late at night.

Yep completely safe, we live kitty corner from a elementary school and further down the road about half a mile is another elementary school.

Yes, but not as safe as I would like. Our neighborhood is definitely showing signs of a downward trend, which is part of why we decided to buy our forever home in another part of the county that is more rural. But even though it is not as safe as I would like, it’s still far better than the neighborhood we lived in previously. Over the 8 years that we lived in our old neighborhood it changed from a street filled with mostly the original owners to a street with a drive by shooting and fights in the middle of the road. I was so glad to get out of there. It’s amaxing how a neighborhood can go downhill.

Yeah I feel super safe in the new area we are in.  It’s very quiet, only residential so no shady people wandering around at night.
