For some reason, this map takes you to crime in San Francisco.

Anyway, don't worry about wildlife unless squirrels and pigeons are a concern.

I know people who have lived in Englewood (including the southeast area) for years with no incidents. Every town has their share of miscreants, druggies, and the like, and certain places they hang out. This week's crime report includes a violent shoplifter at Walmart, a transient trespassing at the City Center, and a vandalism. Though I don't live in Englewood I'm there often, attending their free concerts at the City Center light rail station, shopping at their WalMart, and other activities. I feel perfectly safe doing these things. I don't roam their streets at night as I'm usually dozing in front of the TV.

If you type Englewood, CO into the location on the crime map you will get the Englewood, CO crime map.

Excuse my too many questions, I would like to again ask about something I found on the internet about crime rate in Englewood...Moderator cut: link removed, linking to competitor sites is not allowedin this website it's written that "With a crime rate of 59 per one thousand residents, Englewood has one of the highest crime rates in America compared to all communities of all sizes - from the smallest towns to the very largest cities. One's chance of becoming a victim of either violent or property crime here is one in 17." ... so I see almost everyone here and on other websites say that Englewood is quite safe, so how true is this para in this info on that website? The info on that website did worry me a lot!
59/1000 = (property and violent combined); broken down it is 57/1000 = property crime, 2/1000 =violent crime. IMO, I have nothing to back this up other than common sense, this just means that Englewood reports property crime at a much higher rate than the typical reporting community. (hypothetical) in Englewood someone driving off without paying for gas would be reported as a property crime, in Brooklyn NY someone driving off without paying for gas would be considered a civil matter and no reported as a property crime

Hello everyone again,

I'm starting to plan for few more things and I recalled someone here were saying it would be recommended to avoid Alexan City Center. I was considering this place typically to rent a flat in their community, someone recommend it for me, it's just across the street where my work is. I would really like to know what everyone's opinion about this community in terms of safety & (coyote existence as well).. I see it's a community with parking & shops around (it's directly in front if Englewood City Center. The Alexan City Center website say there are security as well so I guess that means security for the residencies buildings?

The advantage of this place is that it's near Walmart, near work, near many other things around too. So for me it's a huge plus, except if this area is not safe. I also thought busy areas like these would be safe because it's busy and a lot of people around and Walmart is open till mid-night.

Plead give me your insights about that place and those ideas..

Thank you all so much

Seriously stop worrying about wildlife. It's not an issue.

Safe is relative.

Most of the Denver is very very safe.

The rest of Denver is very safe to pretty safe.

There are probably coyotes in that area. It is near the South Platte River and Little Dry Creek runs under and near the property. The only threat they pose would be to pets who are left outside all night or pets that are "lost." However, it is much more likely the pet would get hit by a car on Hampden or Santa Fe.

What you REALLY need to worry about is the packs of stray dogs that control the city.

Ok thanks. So what about the safety in that place and the rest of the thoughts about it (skipping away the wildlife issue as you say)... any thoughts? Thanks again.

I have 2 friends who live in that building. Neither has ever offered me a word of complaint.

That area concerns me more then most other parts of Englewood but I wouldn't consider it to be unsafe. The concerns have to do with more homeless people in that particular area due to the proximity to light rail, the ART shuttle (free shuttle), Café 180 (Pay what you want cafe on Broadway) and a homeless day center in the area. The things that I have seen in that area are people on drugs or drunk in the middle of the day or just grown men loitering acting more like teenagers then grown ups. They don't make up the majority by any means and no one has ever bothered me. I just find it annoying more then anything else. Nothing serious. You may want to check out the crime map. I would never hesitate to walk through that area or visit any stores during the day. At night, I'd be more cautious regarding walking around but I wouldn't hesitate to stop in a store or the library, etc.

RAIDS Online: Regional Analysis and Information Sharing Type in the zip code, 80110 and then you can select the crime you'd like to see, the dates and then zoom in on the area (Inca to Broadway, Floyd to Hampden) The most serious crime that will show up on the map is a sexual assault that looks like it took place at Walmart. It didn't. They offset sex assaults and don't show the true address due to privacy. This assault happened at a teenage party at a house nearby, not at Walmart.
