Even since the economy began stalling several years ago, there have been dire warnings that crime would rise. But in Southern California, crime continues its long decline despite the weak economy. Indeed, 2011 brought new worries about a "double dip recession," yet streets in many parts of the region were the safest they've been in decades.

Reporting from Sacramento - Los Angeles County prosecutors said Thursday they would not pursue misdemeanor charges against campaign treasurer Kinde Durkee for allegedly claiming to be an accountant when she did not have a license. Durkee already has been charged in federal court with mail fraud in connection with the alleged embezzlement of a client's money, the Los Angeles County district attorney's office noted in a statement. "In light of the significant prison time she faces in that case, misdemeanor charges are not warranted as the … violations are not likely to result in additional punishment or time in prison," the statement said.

GLENDALE — The Commission on the Status of Women this week agreed to join forces with a newly-formed community organization that has formed to develop more domestic violence resources and public outreach. The commission has been a staunch supporter of eradicating spousal abuse in the city, so members said joining the Domestic Violence Task Force on Monday was a natural fit. "This is an attempt to search out the needs of our community and to help the support groups' work together to provide more and better services to the community," commission Chairwoman Paula Devine said.
