The best place to ask about crime statistics is the City Of Los Angeles, Police Department in the area you are considering.

I am unfamiliar with that part of Los Angeles and am unable to tell you which precint to check. However, you can all Parker Center downtown and they wil be able to tell you whom to contact.

When looking at statistics it is important to consider what the neighborhood is like.

For example, in Westwood the crime statistics are very different when comparing east and west of Westwood Boulevard.

The east side is mostly single family homes while the west side is apartments and condos. The incidents of car breakins is higher on the west side and can be attributed to the higher density. And it being "studentsville" is also a factor. College students tend to be less careful about what is going on around them.

Hope this helps!
