The Board of Supervisors on Tuesday ordered an independent review of Los Angeles County Sheriff Department crime statistics, following on the questions about the integrity of LAPD numbers showing crime being historically low. The county's inquiry will be conducted by LASD Inspector General Max Huntsman. Supervisor Mike Antonovich pushed for the review, saying the weekend report in the LA Times about the LAPD under-reporting violent assaults was very troubling.
The LAPD's inspector general will investigate the crime stats compiled and reported by that department.
