Community: Overall Violent Crime Decreases 7%, Ppty Crime Increases 2% in LASD area in first 6 mo's 2013
Hi Bel-Air Association,
Overall Violent crime decreases in LASD area in first 6 months of 2013 compared to 2012

119 pages of details showing preliminary reported crime statistics for the unincorporated communities and 42 contract cities policed by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department can be found at www.lasd.org. Visit the “Crime Prevention and Information” page or access them directly at:
http://file.lacounty.gov/lasd/cms1_148405.pdf

These include year-to-date (YTD) June 2013 preliminary reported crime statistics compared to 2012 and compared to five years ago (2008). Reported crimes for each sheriff's station and city include homicides, robberies, burglaries, etc. To review the statistics, open the file, right click with your computer mouse and use the search engine:

Year to Date Violent/Property Crime: As of the end of June 2013, preliminary reported crime data shows that reported overall incidents of violent crimes (Part 1) have decreased 7.11 percent, and property crimes reported (Part I) have increased by 1.96 percent in Sheriff’s patrol areas countywide, compared to last year at this time. These numbers combine to show a .07 percent increase in overall Part I crimes.

Five Year Crime Comparison: In comparison, the five year (2013/2008) change in YTD crime rate for June, preliminary crime data shows that overall incidents of violent crimes reported (Part 1) have decreased by 24.63 percent, and property crimes reported (Part 1) have decreased by 9.60 percent in Sheriff’s patrol areas countywide, compared to five years ago. These numbers combined to show a 12.58 percent decrease in overall Part 1 crimes.

Homicides: As of the end of June 2013, preliminary reported crime data shows that criminal homicides remained the same in Sheriff’s patrol areas (81 YTD in 2013 compared to 81 YTD in 2012), and have decreased by 37.78% (134 homicides) compared to five years ago (2008). 2012 had the lowest homicide rate (allowing for population changes) in Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department patrol areas since 1965.

Help to Prevent Car Burglaries: To help prevent car burglaries, PLEASE always lock your car doors and do not leave property that looks valuable in plain sight in your car. Don’t be an easy target for opportunist thieves. Laptops, purses, iPads, portable navigation, and other electronic devices continue to be popular targets. A surprising fact about recent thefts from vehicles: Many people leave valuables in plain sight, or keep their cars unlocked. Keeping items hidden, or secured in the trunk (or in your house) can prevent opportunist thieves from gaining access to your valuables. Don’t forget to lock your car, but remember that car windows won’t stop a determined thief.

Pupulation Sources: Population source for crime rates per 10,000 population: 2001- 2009 population projections from the Chief Administrative Officer's (CAO) Office of Urban Research and California Department of Finance. 2011 and 2012 Year-To-Date (YTD) population source from the 2010 United States Census Population count.

East LA Station: Note: The LASD East Los Angeles Station has policed the unincorporated area of East Los Angeles and the city of Commerce for many years. Beginning July 1, 2010, East Los Angeles Station added the policing of the cities of Maywood and Cudahy. This should be considered when comparing 2012/2013 crime statistics to 2008.
1960-2012 Crime Statistics: To view the LASD 1960-2012 homicides and ratios, and 1960-2012 charts of Part 1 crimes and rates on the official website of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department (http://www.lasd.org), click on the following link:
