Rancho Santa Margarita offers the best of two worlds: it has all the advantages of a small city plus the peaceful quality of life in a rural village. One of Orange County's youngest cities, Rancho Santa Margarita is a master planned community set near beautiful mountains. The city is populated by about 49,000 residents and it officially became Orange County’s 33rd city in 2000.
Rancho Santa Margarita contracts with the Orange County Sheriff’s Department for all of its law enforcement needs. OCSD uses their San Juan Capistrano Station to service Rancho Santa Margarita and the Orange County jails for lock-up when necessary.
Their police are very proud of both their methods of crime fighting and their ability to maintain an atmosphere of community with the public. There is wide range of community policing programs available to residents and businesses alike. Locals are encouraged to participate in the effort to preserve Rancho Santa Margarita’s quality of life.
