Ever wondered why all those police cars were on your street last week? Do you miss detailed crime blotters from your local small town paper?

Last Thursday, LAPD announced the redesign of their already slick site with even more slick features such as dynamic Crime Maps and E-Policing. That's right, just type in your address and view incidents in your neighborhood. Sign up for E-Policing and get e-mail updates from your SLO (that's police talk for Senior Lead Officer). A SLO is your go-to-officer that is assigned to your neighborhood (called Basic Car Areas) for community relations.

At the moment, E-Policing is only available to West Valley residents, but if you sign up now, you'll be the first to know when it starts up in your area. LA Fire Department applauds the new effort as they recently launched their e-mail list for those who live in Red Flag areas)
