I live in Clay township and it seems to be the best area compared to the other neighborhoods. I lived on Pulaski st. on the west side, now that was scary! Never again...Then we moved to Portage ave near Diamond and it wasn't THAT bad, but I wouldn't go off of my porch after dark. Living in Clay township, we haven't heard any gunshots(aside from New Years of course), haven't witnessed any fights, no drive-bys...very peaceful

I have only been here for a few months and the number of home invasions in the South Bend area is really disturbing.

Don't neighborhoods have "neighborhood watch" so they can look out for each other. The local law enforcement agencies need to get a handle on this; it already seems to be out of control. What are the gun control laws here? Can people have guns in their homes to protect themselves? Not that I like the solution of having a gun, but what can you do if your law enforcement is not able to protect you?

If you are not safe in your home, where are you safe?
if you think south bend is bad on crime try to move from there to california. you can't go anywhere without locking your doors or windows. you have to lock your doors in the middle of the day. everytime you heard a loud bang your are dropping to the ground or running for cover because youi think you are going to get shot. i am ready to move back home for good. i've been here for 18 years. no place like home.

This happens everywhere. These are mainly isolated incidents.
