But don't just take it from me, Ray the Realtor. I spent several years as a Deputy Sheriff in Fontana, Rialto, Bloomington, & Rancho Cucamonga & then more as a Police Officer in Pomona. When it comes to gangs and crime, I've seen it all. When I take buyers out to show homes, the things I look for that many don't notice are the telltale signs of crime. Many times, when buying a home, the excitement can block your view of things that I notice right away. And I use my particular set of skills, education, expertise and experience to help my clients find the right place to live.
Take a drive around at different times of the day and night and on weekends, especially Friday and Saturday nights. Go to the police station and ask to speak with the officer that handles that beat during swing shift. He or she can give you far more insight than anyone else here.
Also, take a look at the following website for more detailed info on crime in this and any other area you may be interested in:

You look like you are covered for Palm Springs . However there will not be much of anything in Palm Springs in that price range. If I were you I would look in Cathedral City, Desert Hot Springs or Palm Desert. You can google crime stats for any of these locations. I can also send them to you if you would like.
Best of luck in finding your desert home!
You can actually go to the police web sites and look up the crime statistics. For your price range are u looking for a stick built home or a manufactured home? Desert Hot Springs is not as bad as it is made out to be. Thousands Palms is in that price range also. It really depends on other factors. Please call me , I would be happy to discuss your options further.
