More than 100 pages of details showing preliminary reported crime statistics for the unincorporated communities and 42 contract cities policed by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department can be found at

Visit the "Crime Prevention and Information" page or access them directly here.

These include year-to-date, three-month 2011 preliminary reported crime statistics compared to 2010 and compared to five years ago (2006). Reported crimes for each sheriff's station and city include homicides, robberies, burglaries and more.

As of the end of March 2011, preliminary reported crime data shows that reported overall incidents of violent crimes have declined 10.91 percent, and serious property crimes reported have declined by 8.21 percent in LASD patrol areas countywide, compared to last year at this time. These numbers combine to show an 8.73 percent decrease in overall Part I crimes.

As of the end of March 2011, preliminary reported crime data shows that criminal homicides in LASD patrol areas have decreased by 6.67 percent, compared to the same year-to-date, three-month period last year. There were 46 homicides last year compared to 41 this year.

This follows a five-year overall decrease in homicides in 2010. 2010 had the lowest homicide rate -- allowing for population changes -- in LASD patrol areas since 1965.
