It's the kind of thing that could happen anywhere, though - it wasn't someone going on a crime spree, it was violence at a family gathering.

True. though certain areas are prone to problems more. And sadly much, if not most violence occurs between people who know or are related to each other.

I've never understood this sort of response regarding crime. Sure, crime can happen anywhere. But what people are seeking information on is the rate. The crime rate is not equal across the city. Some areas are very, very safe. Some are moderately unsafe. The fact that one can get struck by lighting anywhere doesn't mean I have the same risk level right now sitting in my house as I would if I were on the top of Mt. Elbert in a lightning storm.

Can happen anywhere? Sure. Equally likely to happen anywhere? Of course not.


OP: The southeast quadrant of the city has the most crime. The northern suburbs probably have the least, which is typical of vanilla suburbs. Most of Colorado Springs is quite safe, and even the bad areas aren't that bad.

Use the crime maps, but be aware that commerical areas will skew the numbers.
