I wasn't familiar with this area before renting a house in a newer (15 yr old)neighborhood with "nicer" houses. Didn't realize that ALL around our cute little neighborhood were homeless camps tucked behind the levee and bike trail. We are trying to move as soon as we can. Have had theft from our front porch, homeless use our street as their main thoroughfare, going through our garbage. Garbage/discarded furniture and stray dogs everywhere. Within a 2 mile radius there has been at least 1 shooting per month, we hear the gunshots and have heard about it on the news the next day. I'm moving, and will pay the extra couple hundred bucks per month to live in a safer, cleaner, more pleasant neighborhood.

Police are regularly seen and there is a police and fire station in the neighborhood. There are very few crimes, and the ones that do occur are nothing serious. Although, there is a lot of noise generated by passing criminal justice vehicles. The sense of safety is pretty good during the day, but at night it may feel uneasy to walk around.
There is not a lot of availability of nutritional food in the area. Most food stores are large markets. The stores have a lot of variety, but the quality of the services such as beauty and cosmetics may not be so good. Popular stores are mostly the supermarkets and they outshine smaller stores.
