Well, one could rely on authority, e.g. if a national police authority
designated certain areas as high risk. 

Not saying that OSM should do it, just that it doesn't differ that much
from postcode areas, where a certain authority has designated a certain
number to a certain area, although there is no ground-truth that could
be independently verified.
