My husband's job is in Rancho Cucamonga now and we currently live in Corona. We are now wanting to move to Rancho Cucamonga for a closer (less traffic) commute. As I'm doing my search, I've noticed whenever I use crime search tools, seems there's lots of it in Rancho. Is this correct? If so, What are areas I should stay away from? What are the high schools like? Is there a big difference or would I be ok no matter which one my kids attend?

It's safer than Corona.

Rancho IMO is one of the most desirable towns to live in, more so than Corona. That's why it's so danged expensive. Many towns in the IE could take a lesson or two from Rancho Cucamonga.

RC is MUCH safer than Corona.

Avoid any areas below Church St and you'll be fine. The areas around Hellman can get a little scary the lower you go, especially below Foothill. You may want to consider getting into the Alta Loma part of RC- it's an incorporated city within RC and has great schools and very safe neighborhoods. What's getting a lot of attention is the fact that for the past few years RC has been blanketed with break-in's, thefts and the like. I highly recommend that you join Nextdoor.com and connect with the people who live in the areas that you are interested in.

I lived in RC and it's neighboring city for 34 years, my husband grew up in RC and all of my family is still out there so I know what I'm talking about.

Rancho Cucamonga crime ridden? Hardly. Not to say that crime does not happen in Rancho Cucamonga, but what city does not have crime? But, Rancho Cucamonga probably has one of the lower crime rates in the Inland Empire cities (and cities with population over 100,000). I grew up in neighboring Upland and my parents now live in Rancho Cucamonga and have for 12 years now. I think the more north you go in the city, the better. There may be some slightly dingy areas like areas south of Foothill.

Rancho Cucamonga is crime ridden? That's a joke. RC is one of the nicest communities in the Inland Empire.

I know, I couldn't believe it myself, but for example, if you go on Trulia.com to search for homes in Rancho Cucamonga, turn on the "crime" mapping feature they have and you'll see what I mean.

Yeah but with all the construction going on lately that 30min can turn into almost an hour. It can take 30mins just to get on the freeway on ramps. We considered Eastvale, but with those high property taxes, we pass.

Crime is everywhere. But Chino Hills, Rancho, Redlands, Upland and a couple others (Norco) probably have the lowest crime in the IE.
