I was linked to this by an officer in the neighborhood where my wife and I are buying a home:

DenverMaps Report

it shows Current reported crime going on in the immediate area near an address or intersection, as well as history going back to 2005. He suggested using a minimum 1000' search area. Other suggestions were common sense, his direct quote:

One thing we recommend is that before purchasing, you spend some time inthe area, at different times of the day/night, and cruise around about a6-block area. Everyone has a different comfort level for neighborhoods,but look for signs of graffiti, abandoned homes, people traffic, and ofcourse, how many businesses and homes have bars on the windows.
Someone had posted a years-old .pdf collection of change in crime that i'd found highly useful, hopefully this will be useful to others in the future.

Incase the link fails in the future, search for "Denver Crime Offenses Website".

Why would "people traffic" raise a red flag?
