The Thin Blue, On-line

It's been a good week for e-access to your local government. Yesterday, the Los Angeles Police Department re-launched its web site, giving Angelenos a new look at law enforcement in L.A. There are a number of new features, including the "Our Communities" page, which provides links to your local police division; the promise that emails to division commanders will be returned; and, most useful, an incredible maps section that allows you to map crime within 1-5 miles of any address in the city over any 1-7 day period. Inspired to take action? Visit the new "Get Involved" page to find out more.
