A Times investigation into the Los Angeles Police Department's crime statistics found the agency routinely under reported violent crimes. Serious offenses were classified as minor, artificially lowering crime levels reported to the public. The articles prompted a city audit of LAPD crime data and resulted in the department changing its crime reporting procedures. Since those reforms, the LAPD has documented its first increase in crime in more than a decade.
