Non-emergency contacts

For general non-emergency City services (graffiti removal, etc.), call 311.


Los Angeles Police Department

If you see or are the victim of a crime, it is extremely important that you report it to the LAPD. They can't dedicate more resources to our area if they don't know what's going on. You can file a report on the phone or in person—or you can use one of the anonymous tip lines at right.

Police divisions like West LA are divided into basic car areas (patrol zones). You can see the four basic cars that cover our area on our Mapping SORO page. Each basic car area has a Senior Lead Officer who is the primary community point of contact.
