Your question came up under 91040 zip code and not sure if you are only inquiring about that zip code. 91040 is split between Shadow Hills, Tujunga and Lake View Terrace neighborhoods. I am involved in Sunland-Tujunga neighborhood council and other community organization as a volunteer and we have monthly meetings were we discuss all aspects of the area. Two separate senior lead officers in LAPD foothill division are handling these neighborhoods. They both usually attend those community meetings. I would encourage you to come to least one meeting and get to know some of the neighbors and local police if you are seriously considering moving into this area. It is a great community to be part of, and I live in Shadow Hills as well. Please feel free to contact me and I will give you the information.
