Great article – do we have the numbers for 2015?

Eastside’s Target is a “target” for shoplifting, but I’m surprised at the number of strong-arm robberies. Could it be that our older residents have something more to worry about?

does this crime rate include development approvals???
just sayin.

y’know, it’d be neat to have a politico-esque campaign promises vs actual action rating on all council members that we can reference regularly

ideas anyone?

Sheriff Report card? Peeks my interest!

Let’s continue to ignore that extended meter hours in the West Side have forced people who work at bars and come to WeHo to visit the bar district to park further East. These people, especially bar workers with pockets full of tips, are easy targets as they now how to walk 1-2 miles or more from work late at night. In fact, a local bartender interviewed regarding this exact crime/meter hour issue predicted this — Google it. This wrongheaded meter hour policy — which Heilman supported over D’Amico’s objections — continues to demonstrate why he does not deserve re-election. I’m… Read more »

Maybe we are just the most diligent about REPORTING crime.

Many of these crimes are easily preventable. Locks, alarms, video cameras, common sense of not leaving valuables in car and being aware of your surroundings.

WTF is that all about? Man o man and this clown Heilman wants back on. Fugetabout it. I knew this would be the case. I just knew it. Besides reading about the crime stories here on a WeHoville I just feel the City has gotten a bit more skanky with more visible tagging, homeless all over the place, etc. West Hollywood should be at the bottom of this list by virtue of our demographics and wealth. But nope – it’s an outside problem in that the skank trouble is coming in from the outside and that my friends is a… Read more »

SaveWho, the west side, the area with most bars has seen a decrease in crime! The problem is the out of control homeless issue on the east side of town coming from Los Angeles. The LAPD does little to monitor the La Brea corridor because it is a collection of homeless shelters, food pantries and warehouses.

The new development is great for the City but the city planners should force one of these developers to make room for a substation!

It’s well known that any area with lots of bars, clubs, nightlife will bring in the seedy element. It lures more undesirable people that are prone to illegal behavior. Not to mention Weho is now one of the most expensive places to live. Add in our overdevelopment and cramming as many people as we can into the city…and don’t forget the hundreds of “temporary residents” via AirBNB. You’ve basically opened the door for criminal activities.

I certainly feel less safe than I did say 10 years ago.

This doesn’t paint a pretty picture of “The Creative City” ™ does it? I don’t feel unsafe, but I do think that cars and other property are constantly at risk for break-in or vandalism. Perhaps it’s time for a new approach. Maybe more foot or bike patrols around the neighborhood streets. Maybe more engagement along the commercial corridors. I’m not sure, but for all the money we spend on the Sheriffs contract, you’d think we might have better results. I don’t see Universal City on this chart. Considering it has far more non-residents at the theme park or City Walk… Read more »
