Recent Crimes: Wilshire and Olympic Divisions


The following crimes occurred recently in the greater Hancock Park and Wilshire areas, including both the Wilshire and Olympic Divisions.

The list of burglaries from motor vehicles is long and not included here, but Senior Lead Officer Joe Pelayo from the Olympic Division told us,  “…the common trend is unlocked doors.
