police activity in west los angeles.

does anyone know what was happening on south barrington near pico blvd last night? around 2:30am my bf said there were cops everywhere and that he thought he had heard a crash at one point. two cops were parked in the middle of the street in front of out building, not letting people drive north on barrington after gateway/ocean park.

is there a police blotter site i can check? i'd love to know what's happening in my city!

thanks!!!

i don't know, but if you find a police blotter site type thing i'd LOVE to know. soooo often i see police chases from my house, nearly have 10 speeding cop cars drive through me, etc....and then it never even makes the news. the other day i saw AT LEAST 15 cop cars, two police helicopters, two fire trucks, and possibly an ambulance on venice and 5th(? maybe 4th?) avenue, closing off a street (and seriously disrupting my commute grr) and somehow whatever happened isn't news to any of the news outlets...i would really like to know what's going on in my own neighborhood.

isn't it frustrating not being able to find out what all the commotion is about?!? if i ever find a site i'll post the link to the community!

yeah, the entire street (the closed off part, obviously) was pretty much parked cop cars with lights on. the police themselves were clustered at the other end of the block (near the fire trucks) from the intersection i was stuck at as the late-comer sirens roared over (i swear, it seems like there's always 2 or 3 that show up to any big incident late just because it's more exciting than whatever they were doing), so i couldn't really see what they were doing, but it must have been something...

seems weird that they'd have that many squad cars available for one incident, and one incident that wasn't big enough to hit the news.

we must find out about these things. :D
