About The Data Desk

This page was created by the Data Desk, a team of reporters and Web developers in downtown L.A.

Wel­come to The Times’ data­base of Los Angeles County crime re­ports. Crime L.A. de­liv­ers the power of neigh­bor­hood crime ana­lys­is to your com­puter. Us­ing data from the Los Angeles Po­lice De­part­ment and Los Angeles County Sher­iff's De­part­ment, Crime L.A. cre­ates maps and reports for the hundreds of cit­ies and neigh­bor­hoods covered by these agencies.

With daily up­dates, read­ers can keep cur­rent on loc­al crime and com­pare crime levels across more than 200 neigh­bor­hoods and loc­al­it­ies. When vi­ol­ent or prop­erty crimes rise sharply in LAPD patrolled neigh­bor­hoods, the sys­tem de­liv­ers a crime alert. Long-term statistics, like the rankings to the left, are available for areas covered by LAPD and the sheriff.

If your neigh­bor­hood or city is not yet in­cluded, stay tuned. The Times has con­tac­ted all law en­force­ment agen­cies in the county and will con­tin­ue to ex­pand Crime L.A. as more agen­cies be­gin to provide data.

This is part of the Map­ping L.A. project, which launched in 2009 with The Times’ map of 87 neigh­bor­hoods in the city of Los Angeles, re­drawn with the help of read­ers who redrew with our ini­tial bound­ar­ies. More in­form­a­tion can be found in our FAQ.
