Stay out of Downtown Jackson, south side of Jackson, north side of Jackson, East Jackson, Bemis, areas of Jackson. Have you considered moving to North or South Dakota?

Jackson is like any other place. You just have to be aware and conscious of your surroundings. North, south, east or west each have their good and bad. The good far outweighs the bad. Welcome!

I live in North Jackson between Highland and 45 Bypass. Great neighborhood! North of the interstate is far better than south of the interstate as far as crime is concerned.

Everybody thinks South Jackson is ghetto. It is NOT. We are upstanding people, educated, and good people. Best home prices are in South Jackson. Yeah, crime is everywhere in Jackson and worse in some places than others. Memphis has moved into Jackson with crime but it is everywhere even in churches.

South Jackson is ghetto for the most part.Crimes rates are higher in the south area of jackson. But Jackson in general is bad. I live around the Forrest Point area and ive had no issues of crime. But i also have security lights all the way around my house and guard dogs. I moved to jackson in 2005 and i tell you i wish i would have moved elsewhere. The taxes are to high the JEA is the biggest joke of a electric company. And until the new Chief of police stepped in are Police department was bad. I see some good progress with the JPD and my hats off to them. Just be sure you are making the right choice moving to this area.

To Jackson Resident,Have you lived in south Jackson? I doubt it. You have no idea what you are talking about. I take offense to what you said and so do others. East Jackson has the highest crime rate unless you are a Private Eye and know something I don't know. You are GHETTO for making that remark. JEA is not a joke. They rate higher than any other Utility Company around. Apparantly you have nothing better than to sit around and judge things you know nothing about. Maybe you should find somewhere else to waste you time and energy on something you know something about cause this "ain't it" buddy!!!

Oh and by the way you feel so safe in your area but you have security lights and guard dogs? Sounds like you do not feel very safe. Crime is everywhere and no one is exempt. Get a Life!!!!

I have to agree with South Jacksonian. I live in North Jackson and if you feel so safe, why do you have security lights all around your house and what is the need for guard dogs? Maybe you do not feel that safe. Think before you type.

Security lights and security dogs have nothing to do with making me feel safe. But it does make criminals look at a house that has no lights on! Thats common sense lady and i also have plenty guns in my house if a POS does enter. If you would've read my whole post instead of trying to pick it apart i said its all bad! I guess i was stepping on your toes when i stated south jackson is worse. I simply stated facts when i said crime rate is higher in south jackson.

I myself can say South Jackson is bad because i lived in that area for 9 years. My home was broke into 3 times in a 4 year period. I moved to the North Jackson area due to this and have been in that area for 3 1/2 years and had no issues. I also have security lights and 2 guard dogs . I work in Security and can tell you that no matter what part of Jackson or any where you are if you have a dark house and no dogs criminals will target you before the house with lights. People don't be so blind to things take measures to make your home safe.

I had to reply to your comment to Jackson Resident, I have lived in south Jackson! I purchased a house back in 98 and starting around 03 is when things really started to go down hill. I come home one day to find a man climbing in my window. He ran off once i entered but did steal several things the cops never found him. Around 4 months later i had the same thing happen this time he figured my schedule out. So then i installed Security Lights which it stopped after that for a year. Guess he was locked up in that period to make a long story short i finally was able to sell my house but lost around 30,000 due to property declining in that area. I purchased a home and not once have i had any issues and lady you better believe i have security lights just like Jackson resident. I have a friend that works in Law enforcement and he has told me the exact areas crime are at.Do some research but out north off 45 bypass not out south. Save yourself and your family the headache of trying to sell or worse coming home to someone in your home. But it can happen any where in the world!

I advise the family up top to move on the outter areas around Jackson. Just my Opinion but i lived in the Southern area and it made me want out of Jackson all together. So i live in Bell TN in the country its about 15 20 minutes from Jackson. I just work in this Weird town that is more and more like MEMPHIS. And that isn't a good thing.

YOU ARE ALL STUPID and do not have a frickin clue what you are talking about. Enough said, I have lived here all my life and live in a nice large neighborhood and never once had a problem. No nore comments. Can't argue with idiots and who said I was a LADy. I may be a Gay man for all you know, but I guess you would have a comment about that too. Signing off to all IDIOTS.....

Move to BFE, not north, south, east, or west. Then everybody happy, but no one anywhere is safe and that is a fact.
