We break down the L.A. Times crime-mapping data for the week of Oct. 1 - Oct. 7 for Echo Park and environs.

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.
