Based on my experience and currently, Enfield is a very safe place and has only become more safer, most likely the reason because of many new homes are replacing the older homes (finally) but was always safe, as well. I have never had problems down my street, breakins, etc.
We lived in Enfield for a few years. Close to the city and priced well. We did have alot of sleepless nights tho. The local trash seem to come out at night and cause problems. Cars on fire, fights in the street, domestics in the street etc. Great bakery tho!
