In announcing his upcoming departure from the Northeast Division on Monday night, Capt. William Murphy, who is being promoted to commander, referred to the Northeast L.A. housing market as a beneficiary of reduced crime during his watch, according to Patch. The story about Murphy’s departure said:
He noted that he leaves the division at a time when three Northeast Division neighborhoods–Highland Park, Eagle Rock and Glassell Park–are listed among Redfin’s top ten markets. “You don’t get that kind of action in the real estate market unless people feel safe,” he said.
Maybe the LAPD crime maps will start displaying recent home sales as well as burglaries from motor vehicles.
