It would be a great community if there where government involvement. There are parts of La Puente that are ignored and are considered "unincorperated" areas and there is an extreme isolation, which is not bad at times because we aren't pestered with "community events", but at the same time our opinions and concerns aren't voiced.

There is no "La Puente Police Department", but there is a Sheriff's Station that is quick to respond. Crime isn't too common, but there is the occasional violent encounter with law enforcement and parties are often shut down.

Rent is very high from what I hear in the open complex near my house. The closest grocery store is about 10-15 minutes away. The one that was walking distance went out of business due to high rent. There are a few mom and pop stores walking distance but just like a liquor store, jack in the box, donut shop, nail salon, laundrymat. There are no restaurants within walking distance. The majority of "life" is located about 6 miles away.
