Crime Down in Los Angeles

By: Wallin & Klarich

The Los Angles County Sheriff’s department announced this week that the overall crime rate in Los Angeles County has dropped in 2009! According to its statistics, property crimes dropped 11% compared to 2008. Moreover, homicides in Los Angeles County dropped 23.5% compared to 2008, the biggest drop in any category.

All this comes amidst an extremely high unemployment rate throughout Los Angeles County, of which was at 12.3% in August of this year. Los Angles County Sheriff Lee Baca credits this drop in crime to maintaining a high amount of police officers and Sheriff Deputies patrolling the streets of Los Angles County, even as the State continues to be financially strapped.

It will definitely be interesting to see if this drop in crime in Los Angeles County continues.
