    OMG yes it is.  Gig Harbor is an upscale small town just west of Tacoma across the Tacoma Narrows Bridge.  The kind of crime they have in Gig Harbor is from people who don't lock their Mercedes and kids steal the change out of the cup holder.  I have serious doubts there has ever been a murder or any other violent crime (that didn't involve alcohol at Hy-IU-Hee-Hee).

    Percentage-wise growing but still between 10 and 11 thousand people means small number of crimes cause high crime rates. It is safer than nearby larger Tacoma and more expensive to live. In violent crime it's lower than average in the US as a whole.

    You cannot judge anything without a comparison to somewhere else.

    I live in Las Vegas with less property crime and more violent crime and a cheaper cost of living.

    I think ratings are better in Maple Valley, WA and about the same affordability.
