Is there any place to look for crime statistics concerning RV'ing, in parls or other places?

I don't know - never looked. Crime in or related to RVs is something I have never given a moment's thought to. We have been doing it for almost 20 years and have never felt threatened.

Most cities municipal Police departments and Sheriffs have websites, and you can look up local crime statistics as reported to the FBI National Data Base within "reporting districts" of city or county limits.

This will give you excellent info on such things as certain WalMart Parking lot locations as well as RV parks and Campgrounds. They will list assaults, rapes, burglary, and even murders! Interesting info! But be advised that while this may give you valuable insight as to how safe a particular area may be, crime can occur anywhere! Being aware of your surroundings and taking precautions is also important! Pepper Spray is legal just about everywhere, and chemical mace can be carried with a permit.

I like to keep as many friends with us as possible when in a strange place...Mr. Horace Smith & Mr. Daniel Wesson and Mr. Gaston Glock are all great traveling companions!

Seems I read somewhere that upwards of 90% of RV's on the road travel with this type of security system. It must work well.

When camping I just tell clients that I am working at "Corporate Headquarters"

I doubt it. When crimes are reported (break in, theft, etc.) there is no special designation for RV's that I know of, at least in Pennsylvania.

In over 40 years, and 180,000 RV miles, we've never had, nor seen, any crime while camping. We do stay in campgrounds mostly, and try to stay away from huge cities.

If police reports are reported in the newspaper, you would need to know the general area, like the 100 block of CR 123 is the way it is reported here in the paper. With certain addresses you know which one is the Walmart (no problems with parking lot problems except purse snatching, just shoplifting or employees helping themselves or someone leaves their purse unprotected as they load their car and wonders why their purse is ripped off).
