If you are moving from Connecticut I would suggest looking in SE or SW. NE and NW are newer but there aren't as many houses or close to shopping.

Crime is all over Lee County. It's not just in certain areas of the Cape or of Fort Myers. It u sed to be that way. There used to be a time where ppl could just point out areas on the map to stay away from, not any more, the crime is all over. It's not all violent, but most if it is drug related. You have home invasions, purse snatchings, breaking and entering, car break ins and more and these are happening all over Lee County.

It used to be that you could say that the Cape was a safe place to live, but don't let anyone fool you, there is crime there and quite a bit of it. All those things I mentioned above? They've happened on the Cape over the past year. And yes, even a few violent crimes have happened too.

There is crime all over the United States. Compared to the rest of the US Cape Coral has low crime rates and extremely low violent crime rates.
Much of the crime is drug related so if you are not involved with drugs you have an even smaller chance of having a crime committed against you.

These statistics are a little dated...

Sorry, I've lived in Lee County since 1976 and I'm not buying that info. Cape does not have low crime rates. You may not have a murder a day, but you do some other crime going on each and every day of the year.

Of course there is more crime than in 1976 because there is a much larger population. But per capita crime rates are lower than the national average.

I live in a populated area of NW Cape Coral near Mariner High School, the new NW Library and the softball fields and love it. Our neighbors are great and we've never ever ever felt unsafe in our neighborhood. That being said, we used to rent in the NW but past Kismet and I would never do that again. It is so far out there and there are no street lights and our block was hardly occupied. Where we live now is busy and there is only one unkempt house on the street (trashy renters) and no crime.

Anyone arguing about Cape Coral crime statistics needs to visit this site. The F.B.I. Uniform Crime Reports is THE source. Law Enforcement agencies report their data to this program. All I can say is, I'm glad we got out of Cape Coral, seeing these statistics.

Table 8 (Florida) - Crime in the United States 2008 (http://www.fbi.gov/ucr/cius2008/data/table_08_fl.html - broken link)
