Crime reports provided by the L.A. County Sheriff lag behind events,
in some cases for a few weeks. Sheriff's officials have said clerical staff shortages delay
the processing of addresses needed to map crimes. Because of the delay, The Times’ Crime L.A. database
does not provide short-term analysis or alerts about recent rises in crimes for areas patrolled by the sheriff.
Below is a list of crimes reported for Palmdale in the latest seven days.
Keep in mind that the number of crimes reported for this time period may increase over the
coming weeks as the Sheriff provides additional data.
