Statistics

The numbers of domestic violence and related crimes in the City of Los Angeles have been dropping consistently over the past few years.  This can be attributed to successful partnerships between the Los Angeles Police Department and the advocacy groups we work closely with.  The City of Los Angeles strives to continue and improve its work addressing the needs of affected families, so that they can receive the services needed to heal and prevent the cycle of violence from continuing.
