My family and I are new to Jacksonville, and I want to make sure we find military housing in a safe area. Where are the safest areas in the cities to live?

Jacksonville sometimes gets a bad rap, but overall the city is pretty safe. If you are worried about safety, look for NAS apartments that offer gated access with units that are prewired for security systems. Use our search features to find a community with specific safety features. Some Jacksonville apartments offer on-site security officers as well.
