Modernizing the Online Cybercrime Reporting System

Councilmember Blumenfield led the initiative to modernize the current online crime reporting tools in a way that increases accessibility and usability. Cybercrimes are ever more prevalent and, as seen with fake Covid-19 scams, pose a financial and public safety risk. Online reporting also improves access to enforcement for community members who are unable to, or do not want to, visit an LAPD station. ITA and LAPD will expand the types of crimes reportable and work to integrate the reporting tool with MyLA311. Integrating Crime Stoppers into MyLA311 more people will have access to identify and report red-flags.
