How do I know if a neighborhood is safe?

Safety is subjective and only a prospective tenant can decide what “safe” means to them when looking for housing. It may be helpful to contact the 1st district police department and request they look up the address that is being considered for safety statistics. The contact number for any police department is 414-289-CITY. If doing this, check the individual address statistics – not the district. Additionally, try to visit the unit once during the day and once at night. This may help form an opinion about the safety of a specific unit. Check all the locks on the house and doors as well.
