Four neighborhoods reported a significant increase in violent crime. Westwood (A) was the most unusual, recording three reports compared with a weekly average of 0.4 over the last three months.

West Los Angeles (E) was the lone neighborhood with a property-crime alert. It recorded 17 property crimes compared with its weekly average of 8.5 over the last three months.
