Buying a house and crime stats

#1
I tried a forum search but it's difficult to know what to search under, so apologies if it's been done to death.

I found this site

and one of the things they let you do is look at the crime stats for the area compared to nationally. A good experiment is to try looking at areas you know well yourself - the numbers are spot on. That leafy suburb where you think, "Burglary will be high, assaults and theft from vehicles and of vehicles will be low - all new cars with alarms and mobilisers" - sure enough, you're spot on. Shitty area, nobody is ever out, burglary will be pretty low/average, assault and robbery high - sure enough.

A useful tool. Combine that with google streetview and you're sorted.
