While the online tools are new, neighborhood crime watches aren't. Rising burglary rates in the 1960s led to formalized neighborhood crime prevention and eventually to the formation of the National Neighborhood Watch in 1972. You probably know the logo — an ominous silhouette peering out between hat brim and upturned lapel. Since then, community crime prevention has grown alongside technology. Today, neighborhood safety resources leverage publicly available crime data and the power of crowdsourcing.

Whether you are looking to move, are in the process of moving, or are well-established in your cul-de-sac, tapping into neighborly resources can help you understand — and actively improve — local safety. The best online tools to monitor nearby crime combine civilian tips, news reports, and government data with up-to-date reports from local authorities.

The best neighborhood safety tools for when you are:


You know relocating is on the horizon, but none of the specifics is nailed down. At this point, you're probably curious about the crime statistics for the various neighborhoods you're looking at, as well as all the other elements that go into a positive community experience: schools, weather, the neighbors themselves. All of the above will affect your quality of life as well as your home's resale value.

Real estate websites like Trulia include some of these highlights, but the following resources provide a better drill-down:

With over 35000 cities and neighborhoods scored, AreaVibes allows you to compare the destinations on your list with nearby and national averages. The custom search function allows you to pinpoint the crimes that concern you most.

What is 'The Neighborhood' about?

According to the official CBS website: 'The Neighborhood' stars Cedric the Entertainer in a comedy about what happens when the friendliest guy in the Midwest moves his family to a neighborhood in Los Angeles where not everyone looks like him or appreciates his extreme neighborliness. Dave Johnson is a good-natured, professional conflict negotiator. When his wife, Gemma, gets a job as a school principal in L.A., they move from Michigan with their young son, Grover, unfazed that their new dream home is located in a community quite different from their small town. Their opinionated next-door neighbor, Calvin Butler, is wary of the newcomers, certain that the Johnsons will disrupt the culture on the block. However, Calvin's gracious wife, Tina, rolls out the welcome wagon; their chipper younger son, Marty, thinks the Johnsons could be good for the community; and their unemployed older son, Malcolm, finds Dave may finally be someone who understands him. Dave realizes that fitting into their new community is more complex than he expected, but if he can find a way to connect with Calvin, they have an excellent chance of making their new neighborhood their home.
