You can find out the crime rates for any area in England and Wales by taking a look at the website police.uk and searching for your postcode area. I have linked you to the statistics for your area at the bottom of this question.
As you will see from this page, the rate of crime in Telford saw a drop between 2011 and a significant fall between 2012 and 2013, leaving it well below the national average. In May of this year, there were 93 incidents of criminal activity reported in a half-mile radius of the town centre.
It's also important to compare any area to others of similar size. In this test, Telford performs well, with the crime rate below average again. Against other towns in the West Mercia police force region, however, it does not do as well, with the levels of criminal activity above average.

I live with 2 miles of the area and can say that there is nowhere I wouldn't walk around that area, it gets nicer as you go south, away from Dawley and towards Madeley. There are also a lot of scenic routes and paths that are great for dog walking. As with anywhere the nicer the estate the less likely you are to have problems and the bungalow-based estates are especially quiet.
