Public Safety in L.A.'s Koreatown Improves

Korea Times, Posted: Feb 17, 2009

LOS ANGELES Koreatown in L.A., a major center of Korean commerce and culture in the United States, has experienced a decline in violent crimes after a new police station opened up, reports Korea Times. According to the crime statistics released by Los Angeles Police Department on Feb. 14, compared to last year's crime statistics of the area, arrests have risen by 60 percent and violent crimes have declined by 13 percent in the areas served by the LAPD's new Olympic Station. The new station opened its doors about a month ago to serve the residents and businesses in Koreatown and adjacent areas. Before the opening of Olympic Station, the Koreatown was divided into more than three police service boundaries. Businesses and residents had complained that the decentralized police jurisdictions impede LAPD's efforts to combat crimes in the area.
