Number of Reported Crimes
City of Los Angeles
By LAPD Geographic Division, 2020

LAPD Bureaus & Stations

Note on data: Although the LAPD regularly reports crime statistics by division, these reports are only for the latest 30-day periods (not calendar months). The department has not issued calendar year crime summaries by division since 2016. The data in the table below are derived and calculated from crime data in individual LAPD crime reports, downloaded from the City of Los Angeles Open Data Portal, under the Public Safety category. The Almanac does not hold this table as official. It is, however, based upon LAPD crime data and FBI Uniform Crime Reporting Program categories. The Almanac also must note that we are unable to verify and reconcile each line of crime data from the L.A. Open database. We also have some uncertainty about how the LAPD categorizes certain incidents of crime for state and national reporting. Consequently, city-wide totals here differ from official numbers reported by the California Dept. of Justice (even significantly so, in the categories of larceny-theft and arson).
