Overview

Million Dollar Hoods maps how much the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department and the Los Angeles Police Department spent on incarceration between 2010 and 2015. The maps do not show where arrests are made. Rather, the maps show the neighborhoods where persons arrested by LASD and LAPD live and how much LAPD and/or LASD spent to incarcerate them. Currently highlighted on the map are the thirty-one neighborhoods where LASD spent at least $6 million between 2010 and 2015. LAPD spent at least $6 million in twenty-eight communities during these same years.
