LAPD records reveal flaws in crime reporting

LAPD 2012 assault audit

This 2012 LAPD audit found that 3% of the cases ex­amined had been mis­clas­si­fied as minor as­saults dur­ing a one-month peri­od. If those in­cid­ents had been in­cluded, the de­part­ment’s tally of ag­grav­ated as­saults that month would have been about 10% high­er.
