Pomona has a lot of gangs and some are really active especially in the south side you just gotta be careful were you walk and always be on your toes. there is also alot of unsolved homicides and most are gang related. this is due to pomona pd corruption they have no trust with us the pomona residents because of the harrasment. especially over here on laurel ave and dudley.
It seems that the murders in Pomona go unsolved. Why is this? Kirk Winter and others have been murdered in Pomona this year and no arrests in the Pomona cases are reported. Reeinforces my opinion that Pomona is a dangerous place to live and visit.
Strange how the crime rates are much lower than it is in Diamond Bar, which is the "nicer" city to live in but maybe that is the very reason...
it's not the nicest place to be or live, but everytime i roll through it takes me back to better days and nicer weather.
My home town
i am 12 I think its a good place to live you just have to pick a good area to live in.I lve in pomona and i like it. i just stay away from gangs. overall i like it alot
Pomona is a typical Southern California city. I lived in Pomona for 16 years until I moved to Northern Michigan to be with family. Pomona is and always will be my home. Then again the schools aren't so great. I went to school in Covina cause of all the gangs in Pomona.
I love Pomona, Good and Bad areas, but all an all I love the Hispanic culture :)
Pomona is defitnely in the san gabriel valley
I Love Pomona there is nice areas as well as bad areas, but overall it is an okay city, but would not want my kids growing up there, due the gang problems, POMONA in my eyes is not a good area
ah pomona is where i want to go only if i want to get robbed. every time i go to the downtown area, my car gets robbed.
From the perspective of a Cal Poly Pomona student:
There are actually many distinct neighborhoods within the city of Pomona. For instance Phillips Ranch, East of the 57 and West of the 71, is a newer suburban community with curving roads and trails integrated into the residential neighborhoods. Many Cal Poly students live in Phillips Ranch after their Freshman or Sophomore years. Also Downtown Pomona is being revitalized with the renovation of the Fox Theater, the Glass House attracting large musical acts, and the growing "Arts Colony" with its very own Art Walk. Just north of Downtown, by Holt and Garey there are a few Fraternity Houses as well. Unfortunately many parts of the city are rundown but there are really great neighborhoods in Pomona that remain undiscovered by so many people.
We recently moved to the Wilton Heights Historic District near White Ave and Orange Grove Ave. Our community on Columbia Ave is great and very united. There are natural disaster and emergency plans set up for our block. Though our community is amazing the rest of Pomona is in dire need of change. The Downtown area has lots of potential with its historical buildings but I assume due to the crime in the area major businesses avoid Pomona. We have to do most of our shopping in Covina, LaVern, or Montclair. I think the city has to due a lot more to lure major supermarket chains, eateries, and department stores.
