Safety is always a crucial thing to consider when looking for a new place to call home. With the country’s latest events, there are many growing threats to new and current homeowners, including COVID-19, police violence and overall daily concern. California's top 20 safest cities experience crime rates lower than the national average. FBI.gov, a website that releases crime reports yearly, released city crime stats for California.

Very ironic indeed. Too bad, I think this is referencing the city by Ontario in SoCal and not the part of Oakland.

Not too encouraged about this. I live outside OC and have looked at moving back as I lived there years ago. Just checked Laguna Niguel and just this month with in a 1 mile circumference of a unit I was looking at, just in Feb about 60 simple crime's were reported, 15 assaults, 5 vandalisms and over 40 burglaries reported. This does not include anything not reported. "Safe" is not necessarily safe. Source Trulia and the police reports listed and not even in the whole city, just the unit location.

I live in OC and my city is #2 on the list. We've lived here almost 26 years and I can confirm that it and the whole area is very, very safe. Whereabouts is the unit you were looking at (basic cross streets)?

Just off Rancho Niguel RD and North of Mountain Parkway. I also have looked al Aliso Viejo and the statistics are very similar. Still reasonably safe, but still higher than I expected.

I am glad you have had no problems.

The main one I had years ago was in North SD County with 2 break-ins when I was not at home. Then in the SF valley with an attempt to steal from my car.

Just raises the question to what does "safe" really mean? I have had fiends who have reported car break-ins like never before in the OC neighborhood's, and not reported to the police as they would do nothing. So even reporting does not give the full picture.

I lived in Laguna Niguel for a few years from 2012 to 2015. The thing is with a city like Laguna Niguel or Mission Viejo or Rancho Santa Margarita or Aliso Viejo is those cities are alot more upscale, cleaner, and nicer compared to a city like Santa Ana.
