Crime in Orlando

I moved here from Detroit, Mi and this isnt crime here Orlando....I happen to love Orlando and the Metro West Area. I have had no problems with crime. Everyone who thinks they know crime vistit Detroit or Chicago and maybe they will change their mine. There is crime everywhere you live. Some areas have more than others. People think crime is always happening in areas where it's low income...Not true!!! Its happens anywhere where someone is not paying attention to their surroundings or not being cautions. I dont care where I live I am always on the look out for anything that can happen.

Orlando/Kissimmee 192 crime & YUCK

OK - If your a tourist -stay on property! It is your safest bet. If you are staying off property & along 192, keep to the tourist area (west of 535) once your east 535 that area things go down hill for about 12 miles. There are many abandoned buildings (34%) that the local homeless people have been squatting in (viking motel). the whole Kissimmee area gets slum like/ blighted after hoagland blvd. & even the county is formatting a plan to give to the feds to fix up the blighted 192 area. One other thing- Days inn next to Old Town ( which is great) is known by the locals as "Club Meth" since the rooms smell like someones been cooking meth in them - spend an extra 10 bucks & get a better place to stay

rkopel (user on this site) is a Racist from FL

Be careful of the racism. A member on the Orlando Crime forum named "rkopel" is a racist from Fl and a KKK member who posts nasty things about people of color on this site. His comment is on the page about crime in Orlando. Watch out for people like him in Florida And on this forum.

crime

for the most part orlando is a safe place to visit but for the tourist unfamiliar with the area there are high crime areas in orlando that you must be aware of. one of these areas is the parramore section just west of downtown orlando. this area is boardered by I-4 to the east and south, SR50 (w. colonial drive) to the north, US 441 (orange blossom trail) to the west. when visiting downtown do not venture west of I-4 especially after dark. another area that should be avoided is the pine hills section of orlando. locals call the area "crime hills". pine hills is west of downtown orlando between SR50 (w. colonial drive) and clarconna-ocoee road. there is some crime in the tourist areas but if you stay aware of your surroundings and keep an eye on your valuables you should not have any problems. because of very good security the major theme parks are virtually crime free. to see crime statistics by orlando neighborhood and zip code see the attached website.

Skip the trip to Orlando, go to a County Fair

I moved out of Orlando due to the high, senseless crimes, not to mention the traffic. I dare you to walk out of your hotel/home/condo/apartment after dark. Don't even consider using an ATM during the late hours, I wouldn't even use it during the daylight hours. You stopped at a yellow light? How dare you! The driver behind you is in a hurry, therefore he will either ram your car or pull out his handgun and kill you. Are you bringing your young children to the parks? Sexual Predators are numerous, they will find your daughter, they love little girls. Don't be surprised if your sleeping child has been taken right out of their hotel bed in the wee hours of the morning. Heading to one of the retail shopping areas? Oh, they will kill you there too and take your car and your money, perhaps even you wife or daughter, and they don't care that you have your 6 month old strapped in a carseat in the back seat, they'll still take your minivan. A Magical place no longer. If you tip the United States on it's side, all the sludge ends up in Florida. Watch an episode of 48 hours, I guarentee the person who is being charged with murder is associated with The Sunshine State. Sad, very sad....

Orlando does have crime!

Recently our family took a trip to Florida. On the way to the airport we stopped at the Black Angus Steak house directly across from Wet 'n Wild on International Boulevard. It was about 12:30 in the afternoon. We went in for lunch. When we came out all of our bags had been stolen from our rental car! The rental car was locked when we got back to the car (we know it was because the kids were whining that it was hot and wanted Dad to open it up faster for them.) So, in the middle of the afternoon on a highly populated street, some thugs stole all of our stuff (even our 5-yr-old's new Ariel baby doll). Then locked the doors to the car before getting away. We were parked directly in front of the restaurant too. (The restaurant has NO security cameras outside). Beware in Florida, folks. Criminals don't vacations even when we want to! And oh, we waited 1 1/2 hours for the police to arrive then we had to catch our flight home. No police ever showed eventhough we saw two marked cars pass by the restaurant on our way out. Makes me really re-consider Orlando for vacation.

heroin alley

state road 436 from curry ford road to the south and to SR50, (colonial drive) to the north is called herion alley by orlando locals. this major north-south road from the airport to central orlando is perfectly safe to travel on but the neighborhoods to the east and west of SR 436 are infested with gangs and drug dealers. also late at night people race on this section on 436 which is a safety hazard. you will have no problem if you drive to and from the airport on SR436 as long as you avoid the neighborhoods that boarder this road. for orlando crime statistics by neighborhood and zip code see the attached website.

Nav and camera break in

Festival Bay Mall at International Drive
5250 International Dr.
Orlando, FL 32819
(407) 351-7718

My wife and I were in orlando, at the above mentioned mall. We came out after about an hour of shopping to find the driver's window of our s.u.v. smashed and the contents rifled though. I later found out that the mall was in a "not so great" part of town. The cowardly robbers took my digital camera, which they thought was a "TOM TOM" Nav unit. The O.P.D. officer who showed up on the scene told me that because I left the cradle on the windshield, I put up a red flag that apparently read "please break in to my car". He also told me that the mall was a daily cars thieft spot, Nav units are stolen DAILY there.
