On a day to day basis it's fine. Actually, it's ranked 173 safest out of 322...so slightly higher than the national average. There are decent parts of the town. I've driven through some nice areas of Rialto. So it depends on the area.

Thumbs up I used to live in Rialto

I used to live in what I call North Rialto, which is where you are talking about, in fact, my parents still live there. Let me state now that this is the only area of Rialto that I would live...and stay away from the apartment complexes people...that's just begging for something to happen!! Anyways, the most that ever happened was our mail was stolen once, and someone tried to open a card in my fathers name, but they ended up getting caught, and we put a new mailbox with a lock on it. That's all that ever happened to us, but the idiot was caught...I also think it helps having very protective dogs to keep the idiots away (we have a pit bull and a jack russel terrier...the one that will hurt you is the terrier...but the pit scares people even though she is a very lovable dog). When the gas prices got extremely high not to long ago...my parent's neighbors had their gas stolen from their car. I liked living there, it's close to the 210 and 15, and shopping centers (especially all the stuff that is still being developed in that specific area, it's going to make it that much more enjoyable for residents). But the way I see it...no matter where you live, there is always going to be some crime in the neighborhood. Not all people are nice, law-abiding citizens, it's a fact of life.

i would say stick to north Rialto, anything on the other side of 210 is ghetto ... regarding comments in fontana it depends on where you are, north fontana is like rancho cucamonga I been living here for 5 years and its been nice except for the wind. My husband fix-up car for a living and he normally parks his car outside with a 3000 dollar rims, or sometimes customers car and good to know it hasnt been stolen or anything like that even with the neighbors. In LA (walnut area) we park our car 2 straight days outside and the 3rd day its gone.

One of my employees lives in Rialto and so far, since he moved there, there has been numerous drive by shootings, one murder by way of shooting, and one stabbing. All of this occurred in or just outside his apartment complex! I wouldn't move there if the house was free!

I had two cars stolen in 6 months. One of them was never found... the other one was found IN RIALTO, stripped to the bone... nothing left. The Officer that took the report for one of my stolen cars, called Fontana and Rialto "Felony Flats" - that's their nickname for that area!!

Rialto is ghetto.
and anyone telling you different is really playing a horrible joke on you. And as for that Home Depot, I have seen people pissing, shi$$ing, drug deals, prostitutes getting their "work" on all behind and around that Home Depot. Rialto is a **** HOLE!

Do you want my honest opinions of Rialto? Rialto is on the same scale as Victorville or Lancaster. A lot of empty space, followed by a few strip malls, then a isolated housing development followed by more empty space. It's like the Cerritos, or Long Beach of the 1950's before all the new development.

Great place to live. My family and I have lived here over 20 years and I wouldn't rather live anywhere else. It's great.
