In other words, just three robberies took place here in 2011.

In November of 1982, when voters voted to become LA County’s 83rd city, the name “Las Virgenes” was one of the name considered for the new city. The name finally became Agoura Hills and its original city hall was a leased storefront building on Canwood Street. A lot has changed since way back then, and Agoura Hills is now considered one of the finest and wealthiest communities in the larger Los Angeles Area. Once inhabited by Chumash Native-Americans for thousands of years, Agoura Hills is a thriving suburban city with tons of history. Many of the Indian artifacts and Chumash history can also be seen at the nearby Chumash Indian Museum. A popular Agoura Hills limousine and party bus destination is also the Reyes Adobe Historical Site, which was built in 1850 and is beautiful piece of California history. In the early 1900’s, the community also functioned as an extremely successful movie location due to the Morrison- and Paramount Movie Ranches.
