Past discussions have indicated this is not something which can be
objectively mapped in the OSM database. A posted sign warning of a high
crime area, as well as things like graffiti, the
dilapidated/deteriorated state of buildings, etc. could be mapped or
tagged on existing objects as appropriate. Crime data by police
beat/precinct could be overlaid onto a map generated from OSM data as well.
