|(Jan. 11, 2019, 7:40 p.m.) -- The area from 4th St. to 7th St. and from Long Beach Blvd. to Atlantic Ave. (near St. Anthony's Church) is the LBPD crime reporting district with highest number of 2018 "Part 1" violent crimes against persons. LBPD's 2018 crime stats (released Jan. 10) show that the area had 23 robberies (averaging nearly two per month), 18 aggravated assaults (averaging one roughly every six weeks) and 1 rape.
It's part of LB's 1st Council district, represented since mid-July 2014 by Councilwoman Lena Gonzalez, whose Council district accounted for the highest, the third highest, the fifth highest and the sixth highest 2018 totals of Part 1 violent crimes against persons among LBPD's 280+ neighborhood crime reporting districts citywide. Gonzalez's Council district also had eleven homicides in 2018, an average of nearly one a month and the highest number among LB's nine Council districts.
Under federal crime reporting standards, LBPD reports "Part 1 crimes against persons," a category that includes murder, rape, robbery and aggravated assault. Aggravated assaults include but aren't limited to shootings.
Not all LBPD crime reporting districts are of equal size; most within LB's downtown and central LB area are of similar size; others have irregular shapes. To view a map showing LBPD's crime reporting districts, click here.
