There isn't a lot of price difference between Adelanto and neighboring towns of Victorville, Apple Valley, and Hesperia, once you deeply analyze the big picture. Don't hesitate to put a price on convenience of shopping, public transportation, and resale value of your home.
You may also wish to consider the retirement community of Jess Ranch in Apple Valley, as well as Spring Valley lake and/or Silver Lakes.
If you would like more details, please do not hesitate to contact me.

call the police department and they will be more than happy to tell answer that question.
Let me know if you like me to show you couple of houses in the area so you can have a sense of the area you may like.

I would also check local census unemployment statistics.
If you're looking for safety, I always suggest slightly outside of population centers with a property with a well. For that, I would look to El Mirage to the west of Adelanto, or areas of Apple Valley in the county portion, such as Fairview Valley.
