The neighborhood is safe. There is low crime other than the very occasional burglary. The area is near downtown so it is probably slightly less safe than farther in the suburbs. Wilmington as a whole actually has a high crime rate, however the issues predominantly arise in the bad areas downtown. The visibility of police differs a lot depending on where you are. In this area, the police are not very visible, but they respond relatively quickly when called. Personally, I have never had to call the police.

I like the community I live in because it's close knit. Everybody knows each other and so it's a feeling of comfort. Although it isn't a bad area, the crime rate has gone up since I've been living here. My specific neighborhood is very peaceful, but crime is prevalent only a few blocks away.
In Wilmington, the crime rate has shot up. There have been multiple homicides in the past year alone. I do believe that the police respond quite quickly, and that gives a feeling of safety.
