The WPRA focuses its efforts on those areas of greatest concern to our members, our neighborhoods and our city. In some issues we take a leadership position, while in others we work with other interested groups.

You can help prevent burglaries from autos by not leaving items in your car in plain view when the vehicle is parked. The area around the Rose Bowl is especially vulnerable to this kind of burglary. Put any articles you don't want to keep on your person in the trunk or other place not visible from the outside BEFORE you park. People are watching and if you place things in the trunk after you park they will know just where to attack. Please continue to be vigilant and close and lock all windows and doors and set your alarm any time you leave your house, even for a few minutes.

For further information please visit In case of emergency call 911. Non-emergency line: (626)744-4241.

Area Covered by the Crime Statistics

The Pasadena Police Department has divided the city into five Community Service Areas (CSA) and can provide statistics for each CSA.

The West Pasadena Residents Association area is located within CSA 1. A map of Pasadena is here with CSA 1 in blue.  The area covered by the WPRA is highlighted in yellow and the Council District 6 is outlined in black. (The map has not been updated to include the current Council members or the current Lieutenant for each CSA.)

Notes on the Statistics

As you look at the statistics, remember that they cover an area larger than the WPRA, and include commercial as well as residential areas. However the statistics are useful in determining the overall crime trends, and also alert us to the most prevalent types of crimes.

Each pair of lines on the graph shows a different type of crime. The points on the line show the number of incidents for the month for each crime for the current year and the prior year.
