2011 Annual Crime Statistics Released During the past year, La Mirada experienced the lowest number of Part 1 crimes of communities in southeast Los Angeles County and northern Orange County. In 2011, there were 897 Part 1 crimes reported compared to 798 in 2010. The rise was due primarily to an increase in larceny, auto theft and burglary. Although the number of Part 1 crimes slightly increased last year, the City continues to be one of the safest cities in Los Angeles County. La Mirada’s Part 1 crime rate was its third lowest in the past 10 years. The ten year crime analysis indicates that crime decreased 16 percent over the last 10 years. La Mirada’s safe reputation can be attributed to proactive policing by the La Mirada Public Safety Team and the team’s strong partnership with residents and businesses.

Crosswalk Pedestrian Safety Operation Last week, La Mirada used funding provided by a Justice Assistance Grant to conduct a Crosswalk Pedestrian Safety Enforcement Operation. The operation involved deputies dressed in plain clothes crossing the street at marked crosswalks on Biola Ave. and Adelfa Dr. Other traffic enforcement deputies stopped and cited motorists who failed to yield to the pedestrians. The goal of these operations is to educate the public and to reduce the number of accidents between vehicles and pedestrians.
