There is a lot of information on local crime available online, and here’s the latest way to make sure you’re getting the most up-to-date crime and policing information about our neighborhood, directly from the LAPD.
Just sign up for the Northeast LAPD Newsletter. It’s very easy to sign up – just go to lapdonline.org, then click on the "e-policing" icon and add your address/zip code. You’ll immediately start getting the latest e-mail blasts and newsletters on local crime trends and issues, upcoming police events, and neighborhood-by-neighborhood updates by Northeast Division LAPD Captain Bill Murphy.
There are also some interesting location-based crime-mapping tools – use the “crime maps” button – that are really easy to use. It’s pretty interesting stuff, showing that most of us in Mount Washington are lucky to live in a relatively low-crime area. Finally, the Northeast Division has opened a sub-station at the LAPD Museum on Mondays and Fridays between 11:00 AM to 3 PM to make it easier for those who might find this location more convenient (or less hectic!) than the Northeast Division to file a report or simply to answer your questions.
