It’s been peaceful in the Elysian Park area--at least on the ground.
(We can't speak for all those choppers lately.)
No Crime Reported At All in Elysian Park
There were no property crimes and no violent crimes in the neighborhood near Dodger Stadium during the week of Oct. 1 – Oct. 7.
According to the L.A. Times crime-mapping data, that neighborhood—site of the Bryan Stow beating in March—had gone 25 straight days without a violent crime report.
With the Dodgers done for the season, it wlll be interesting to see if rates go up or down after this summer’s increased police presence.
Very Little Violent Crime in Echo Park Too
Meantime, over in neighboring Echo Park, 1 violent crime was reported, an assault on Oct. 1 in the 1400 block of Sunset Boulevard.
According to the L.A. Times data, the week also saw 9 property crimes, below the area’s 13.6 property crimes per week over the last 6 months.
Incidents included a burglary in the 1800 block of Cerro Gordo Street on the evening of Oct. 5 and a grand theft auto in the 1200 block of Glendale Boulevard.
