I would'nt know, but you can check the website of LV Metro Police,
I know they have a tool on there to view criminal statistics.
Or if you are moving into a particular apt community,
you can try finding it on one of the apt rating websites.

Hope I helped

It's not too bad. Used to be pretty nice about 20 years ago. Lot of Mexicans there now. I would not feel it is dangerous.

Also naming an entire Zip code in vegas can be a bit weird. You will find some very nice neighborhoods in that Zip code and some not so nice ones. It's not a bad area though.

Not a bad area of Desert Inn Road. This is how I look at it, on Decatur Blvd/West Desert Inn Rd, town of Spring Valley,there are lots of newer apt complex, newer single family homes and custom built homes, the farther you go West on Desert Inn. As far as Decatur Blvd/East Desert Inn Road, town of Paradise, it is mostly older apt buildings and the farther you go East on Desert Inn, the more the area gets rundown.

On Desert Inn Road with Decatur Blvd being the median, West Desert Inn (Spring Valley) is definitely a more desirable area than East Desert Inn (Paradise). What is the cross street of the area on Desert Inn are you thinking of moving to?

As Hiker says...troubled to the east. Better to the west. Not great anywhere in that zip but stay west as far as possible.

Pro is good strip access.

Depends on what you consider to be bad. It's not the worst neighborhood in Vegas by any means. My cousin actually lives right there. 20 year ago that area was pretty nice but gone down hill. It's really not that bad though. I'd walk around at night in that area.
