We lived in the Boulders Apartments for three and a half years. Over that period of time, I had numerous people ask me if we had to deal with a lot of crime there, and I always told them it wasn't nearly as bad as people make it out to be. It's probably the worst part of town by Provo standards, but it's still Provo, which is isn't exactly a dangerous city. I never really felt unsafe there. We had some sketchy neighbors who would occasionally yell profanities right outside our window and such, but nothing more than annoyances.
