Recently, we were asked the question, “How Safe Is Queen Creek and San Tan Valley Arizona?” If you are considering moving to an area, but are unfamiliar with the location or community, then the best way to obtain crime data for a specific region is to call the local law enforcement office and ask. If you are inquiring about a property located in The Town of Queen Creek, in Maricopa County, then you would call the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office

Crime statistics, an imperfect measurement at best, provide some indication of the level of criminal activity in an area.

6 Sex Offenders
Since June 1996, Arizona has maintained a registry and community notification program for convicted sex offenders. Prior to June 1996, registration was not required, and only the higher-risk sex offenders are on the website. The presence of a sex offender in the vicinity of the property is not a fact that the seller or real estate broker is required to disclose.
