If you hover over the number in the shaded area itâ€™ll bring up a box listing the reported crimes. It looks like all were suspicious vehicle, suspicious subject or noise complaint. I donâ€™t really like the way those maps are because they donâ€™t differentiate between crimes or just calls to the police. If one neighbor has a dog that barks all the time and another neighbor calls the police several times a certain area can look like itâ€™s a high crime spot when itâ€™s not.
Rio Rancho has a pretty low crime rate. Iâ€™ve lived here more than twenty years and the city has almost tripled in size in that time. As the city gets bigger of course there is more crime but relatively speaking Rio Rancho has a pretty low crime rate.
