In announcing his upcoming departure from the Northeast Division on Monday night, Capt. William Murphy, who is being promoted  to commander,  referred to the  Northeast L.A. housing market as a beneficiary of reduced crime during his watch, according to Patch. The story about Murphy’s departure said:

He noted that he leaves the division at a time when three Northeast Division neighborhoods–Highland Park, Eagle Rock and Glassell Park–are listed among Redfin’s top ten markets. “You don’t get that kind of action in the real estate market unless people feel safe,” he said.
