The Los Angeles Police Department released its crime data for the past month.

These five neighborhoods have the highest crime rates.

These are the most important takeaways from April’s trends in crime:

The Big Picture
The total number of crimes saw a slight decline of about 2 percent in April from the previous month, and also a decline of about 2 percent in total crimes in the same month of 2017.

Farifax Crime on the Rise
Fairfax, an up-and-coming neighborhood in Los Angeles, has stayed high on the crime ranking, while the crime rate in Hollywood, a major tourist destination, has fallen.

*Important notice: Small neighborhoods, such as the Veterans Administration, appear high on our list as a result of their small populations, which can skew crime rate rankings.
