    You can take Woodland Hills off of that list. I just left a ONE bedroom that was 1400/month. The EAST SFV is more affordable, but not very desirable.

    I'm not with LAPD but grew up and spent most of my career working in the LA Area. I just retired so your career is beginning where mine ends. (G)

    For LA area apartment listings look at:

    You're going to pay around $1600 per month for a two bedroom, unfurnished apartment in one of the nicer areas such as Santa Monica. Given LAPD's starting salary, this is not an unreasonable price.

    The San Fernando Valley area (Van Nuys, North Hollywood, Studio City, Woodland Hills, etc.) is cheaper but it's a lot hotter during the summer.

    Because LA is a huge place, finding the best spots to live at the lowest cost is something that takea about a year. Bite the bullet, rent an apartment and then talk to your coworkers about their neighborhoods. I'll bet that at the end of a year, you will have moved to a great and affordable place.

    Thanks for the links. I had tried apts.com before without much luck but the other one seems to have a lot of potential options. A lot of the prices on apartments.com are lower than what they actually have - several places told me they didn't update it often. Anyways, I had about two weeks' notice when I got the letter the first time so hopefully that will be enough time for the second time around.

    Problems relocating for LAPD

    Hey I just got hired by LAPD but had to defer to a subsequent academy date because I am relocating from out-of-state and I am having enormous probs finding a place to live. When I first started the app process, I looked at apartments to make sure it was do-able and it was. The prob now is that rents have gone up $300-$400 per month. If there are any other Socal LEO's or LAPD officers on here with advice, or any others in a similar situation wherever, I'd appreciate any thoughts.
