How safe is South East London?

How safe is Lambeth in South East? I know it sounds really stupid asking this then I am planning to go there and I was told it has one of the highest drug rates or robberies?

I live about 20 minutes away from the “safest” borough in London (Richmond) which with had 75 percent less attacks compared to most parts of South London or South East London.

Update:

Edit: I don’t know what section to post this question

    You posted in the right section, but there is no 100% answer to your question. People live in Lambeth for years and never see a hint of trouble, but you might walk through Knightsbridge and see an armed robbery taking place.

    Be street smart and it's very, very unlikely you'll be caught up in any trouble.

    It depends on which part. The London Eye and Waterloo station are in Lambeth borough. I also worked close to the borough for several years at the Elephant & Castle. As long as you aren't planning to hang around some council housing estate, especially at night, you should be fine.

      I went to Lambeth North, Near Imperial War Museum. I’ve searched up the Crime stats and the Crime rates is significantly lower in my area compared to Lambeth North by almost half.
