If you've been wondering why there are more LAPD cars roaming around Echo Park, Silver Lake, and Atwater Village these days, check out the Eastsider LA blog. . "The LAPD has temporarily assigned about 50 extra officers from its CREW unit (which stands for "Crime Reduction Enforcement Warrants") to flood the area between Echo Park and East Hollywood, said Northeast Division Capt. Bill Murphy." According to the blog, the CREW unit focuses on "hot spots around the city." [Eastsider LA]
