Los Angeles is a wonderful city full of lovely people. I wouldn't worry about being robbed, mugged, or even pick pocketed. We do have a homelessness problem so be careful in Santa Monica or Downtown, but the worst I've ever seen is someone being yelled at by a stranger suffering from a mental illness. I've lived here for 13 years and while the people are not nearly as friendly or welcoming as I've noticed in other parts of the world, they are generally not dangerous. My only safety warning goes to women who are at clubs or partying, just watch your drinks.

One block you can be in an utopia, across the street razor wire fences and muggings in public.

Lived here for 7 years. It can get pretty ugly. I'm glad I left!

L.A. is the entertainment capital of the world and is generally safe for visitors or tourist.

L.A. is a big city with a lot of things to do and people. Crime rate here is moderate and you should be street smart here too.
