Do you feel safer in Lynwood?
You should as statistics show that crime in the City has decreased during the first quarter of 2019.
Lynwood has experienced:
– 15 percent decrease in aggravated assaults
– 14 percent decrease in burglary
– 11 percent decrease in auto thefts
According to Los Angeles Sheriff’s Lt. Michael Del Real, this is a trend the Sheriff’s Department hopes will continue throughout the year. “The decrease in crime can be attributed to several factors, including increased code enforcement by the City and increased foot patrols and engagement by the Sheriff’s Department.”
He added that the addition of the LASD’s Summer Crime Enforcement Team, which was approved by the City Council, will help keep the City’s crime rate low. The Team will start on June 2 and work toward reducing gang, narcotic and theft-related crimes.
“We are grateful for the hard work of many who are helping make Lynwood a safer city,” said Lynwood Mayor Jose Solache. “We will continue to be vigilant in efforts to reduce the number of violent and property crimes in the months ahead.”
