Hi alenbell9,
No matter where you live in the world there will always be someone somewhere prepared to break the law... This forum does have another post regarding gangs on the North Isle which you might find helpful. I haven't lived in NZ yet but visited last year and never came across anything nasty, but NZ is not perfect or crime free. When something like a murder does happen, because it is relatively uncommon it does tend to make big news.
As with any relocation to a new town or country, you need to do a lot of research about the local area before renting or buying a home. Look up crime rates etc on the interenet when you do know the region you will be moving to.

Best of luck! :D
