Know Your LAPD Senior Lead Officer (SLO):
The SLO is a Cop in Your Corner
For general public safety issues, you should contact the Senior Lead Officer (SLO) for your area. General public safety issues include things like illegal activities, homeless, burglaries in your neighborhood, etc.
LAPD Senior Lead Officers are the police department’s liaisons with a specific part of the city. Each area in Los Angeles has its own Senior Lead Officer, who is responsible for its "Reporting Districts" for crime.
Keep in mind that SLOs usually only answer their cell phones while they are on duty, and they sometimes work long shifts and odd hours. So, it may take a few days for the officer to return your call or e-mail. Be patient.
Your Senior Lead Officer can help you set up a Neighborhood Watch for your area. I recommend that every block or area have its own Neighborhood Watch – that is the most important thing you can do to reduce crime in your community.
There are several SLOs assigned to our surrounding neighborhoods including Brookside, Fremont Place, Hancock Park, La Brea/Hancock, Larchmont Village, Mid-Wilshire, Miracle Mile, Park La Brea, Sycamore Square, Windsor Square, Wilshire Park and Windsor Village, Longwood Highlands, among others.
What’s the name of the LAPD Senior Lead Officer (SLO) assigned to your neighborhood, and what’s his/her cell number? It's easy to find out. Check out:

Wilshire Division is divided into 57 Reporting Districts (RD's) covering a total of 13.97 square miles. These Reporting Districts are grouped into Basic Car Areas.
