Crime in Melbourne,FL
Star Rating - 3/9/2017
Could someone tell me how the crime rate is in Melbourne? Are there murders? Is it a safe place to live? We are thinking of retiring there. Thank you everyone.

Anna, it depends where you go. Viera and Suntree are great, but they are 'unincorporated territory' so they often are officially considered part of Melbourne. Melbourne itself has a rather high crime rate. Everyone owns guns. When you hear about a home invasion on TV it almost always end with "..and the home owner shot the robber dead". If you have the money, again Viera or Suntree are great. Beachside is great. Avoid Cocoa and Palm Bay for certain.
