It seems like all the crime is concentrated around the bar area of Courtenay Place, so be careful around there. I've always felt safe walking or driving around the city, you VERY RARELY hear about things that cause concern (like women walking through empty parks at night encountering strange characters, or the occasional aggressive homeless with a mental illness, etc).
