The Los Angeles Police Department released its 2018 crime map this week, which is pretty darn accurate.
The LADOT Crime Map provides a detailed overview of the most dangerous neighborhoods in the city.
It also provides the most accurate crime statistics since 2008, which makes the new map even more valuable.
Here are some highlights: The LAX area is the most densely populated and violent, with 2,715 violent crimes per 100,000 residents in the last five years.
For comparison, the San Francisco Bay Area had a crime rate of just over 1,000 per 100k, and Honolulu had a murder rate of 1,717 per 100K.
Los Angeles is also the most crime-ridden metro area in the nation, with 1,845 violent crimes for every 100k people in 2017, and 1,931 violent crimes in 2020.
Overall, the LADOCs crime map ranks as one of the safest cities in the country, and it’s a great addition to our city crime map.
LAPD Chief Charlie Beck said that crime data has been “improved for a number of years.”
Beck also said that the LASD’s Uniform Crime Reporting program has helped make the LACPD’s crime map more accurate.LAPD Commissioner Ronal Serpas said that police agencies around the country are “working to make the city’s crime maps more accurate, more comprehensive, and more accessible to the public.”
The LAPD’s new map was made possible through a collaboration between the Department of Homeland Security, Department of Justice, the U.S. Department of Education, and the LAPD’s Office of Professional Accountability.
Beck said the LAPD is also working to make its map more “data-driven,” and the department is currently working on a “crime-by-the-home” crime map that will be updated as technology evolves.
