How is crime in and around college station? I live northwest of houston (Magnolia/The Woodlands area) and crime is getting increasingly worse in this area...break ins, car jackings, robberies, etc....We are considering locating to a rural area just outside of college station as my husband has a job offer there. We are thinking anywhere between 1 to 10 acres. What are the best areas, as far as crime and nice housing? We have 4 small children to consider.....

Thanks for any help you can give!

(Also, If you have any info on the best non-denominational churches in the area?)

College Station, being a college town, supposedly faces minor drug trafficing/drunk driving issues compared to most cities. It has less drug traffic than Austin, but for the amount of people living there it's still pretty high. (According to a Police Officer friend)
Other than that, it's supposedly similar to any other small town except you have the influence of the college environment.

Look below for 2006 data:

I hear (from friends and students at A&M) that just above everyone in CS feels safe. Violent crime is rare and unusual. College-kid crime, as you might expect, is most of it.

The data above seems to confirm that.

I respectfully disagree. The crime in College Station has gotten worse in the past two years. They had a mugging over by the Kroger in College Station not too long ago.

The problem with College Station is that the good and bad neighborhoods are mixed, so there's not really a bad side of town to avoid, just pockets to avoid.

There's been several muggings over by Southwest and Highway 6.
