Default 22nd & Broadway Oakland

I will be taking a Job around here, how safe is this area? I heard a police officer was beaten within inches of his life and shot. I'm a little concerned about my safety.

That area is pretty close to west oakland which has one of the worst crime rates in the city. An elderly chinese man was robbed and killed there last summer.

I"ll be working for a company called Insights. I'm actually pretty scared to be moving to Oakland but the pay is much more than I get here.

Look into Berkeley or Sf to live, much safer and a nice piece of mind.

Actually, both Berkeley and San Francisco have high-crime sketchy areas. I'm not really sure why somebody from SoCal keeps coming to this board to educate people about a place he doesn't have a ton of real knowledge about.

Go here:
Oakland Crimespotting

In the past 3 months, there's been 14 assaults (5 which resulted in serious injury, probably stabbing), 12 armed robberies, and numerous drug activities.

Fortunately no murders within a 1/4 mile radius. I wouldn't live in the area personally unless I had a black belt in jiu-jitsu, and was trained in small arms fire in close quarters situations.
