    You may be interested in reading the Edmonton Police Crime Stats by Community.

    When I go to purchase a new home I call the local police station to find out what the community crime is like. As in any large city, Edmonton has areas where crime is more prevalent than others.

    This article in the Edmonton Journal recently gives you the location and details of 2008 shootings. You will see where the crimes have been concentrated in the city.

    It is apparent from these statics that certain communities seam to be safer than other such as the area east of DT and south of the river where such communities as Goldbar, Terrace Heights, Bonnie Doon, etc are located. Also the SW tends to a low violent crime area. Also every community has it's share of vandalism.

    I guess the largest concentration of drug related offenses are just north and east of the DT core - east and north of 95 St /Jasper Ave, along 105 Ave , parts of NE and N Central Edmonton.

    I suggest reading the Police stats report to form your own opinion of where you'd feel the most comfortable living.

    Hopefully this has answered your question.

    Good Luck.

    Yes, Junebug's answer was right on the money. Look into the Goldbar, Forest Heights, Terrace Heights, Bonnie Doon areas. These areas are beautiful, with mature landscaping, and neighbours tend to know each other quite well.

    North Edmonton has a drug problem, East Edmonton has a gang problem, South Edmonton has a crime problem, West Edmonton has a guns problem. Downtown Edmonton is a pollution problem.

    Pick your poison.
