Venice Beach Write in Campaign for Safety: Week Three

Have you noticed Venice getting better? Are there less aggressive transients around town? If you have not noticed a change (I haven’t) then we must continue with week three of the write in and call in campaign. 20-40k people read this site each week, and if 10% of you care enough we can make change happen. Do this if you have not already.

For the last two weeks Yo! Venice! posted about a “write in” campaign intended to make Venice Beach a safer place for residents. It is only through continued efforts that this campaign will be taken seriously, so we are reposting this again to let residents know about it. You can read some of the responses from last week by clicking here and reading the forums. If you wrote in last week and do not feel the situation has changed, write in again this week.

Homeless on the Venice Canals, Venice Beach

It is recommended that you add the LAPD dispatch line at (818) 734-2223 to your cel phone speed dial and report any and all crimes that you witness in Venice to the LAPD. It is only by reporting and demanding that the LAPD and elected officials enforce existing laws that Venice may recover from the present situation it is in. We can not ignore the safety issues that exist in Venice anymore. This is NOT a developer backed gentrification effort, this effort is being led by concerned residents and anything you hear contrary to that is a blatant lie.

Reposted from last week:

A “pissed off” Venice resident tired of being “pissed on” has decided to start an old fashioned write in campaign to get the community together for the greater good of safety by petitioning local politicians and police members to actively try and improve the living conditions for all Venice residents.

Here is the “write in” letter from Venice Resident Steve G:

The Subject Line Should Read:
VENICE RESIDENTS REQUEST MORE POLICE SUPPORT!

(Personalize this or Cut and Paste if you like but this is what I am writing:)

Dear Mr Mayor, Mr Rosendahl and Captain Peters,

As a long time Venice resident I cant help but notice the growing number of Transients, Homeless and RV Dwellers that have invaded Venice in the past year. It is sad that some of these people have fallen on hard times, but some are Mentally Ill, Substance Abusers or just “Homeless by Choice” Why is the City ignoring the requests of victims (taxpayers) of this squalor. Puke on the sidewalks, “homeless” people, addicts and RV dwellers harassing actual tax paying residents and tourists is simply unacceptable.

I have learned that there has been a request for a special police unit dedicated to the Transient/Homeless people living in Venice. This is my official request as a tax paying Venice resident. WE NEED MORE POLICE OFFICERS DEDICATED TO THE TRANSIENT/HOMELESS ISSUES WE ARE EXPERIENCING HERE IN VENICE! There is a fine line between Civil Rights Taxpayers Rights, Human Rights and Quality of Life. WE need more officers to do their Job thoroughly, accurately and efficiently and separate the Criminals from the people who need help and are willing to accept help. Please protect the rights of your constituents and give us the police support we desperately need. Let the police enforce the laws on the books: LAMC 85.02 No Person is to live in their vehicle day to day on city streets. or LAMC 41.27 “No person shall drink any malt, spirituous or vinous liquor containing more than one-half of one per cent of alcohol by volume, upon any street, sidewalk or parkway, park, playground.” You do not need any more motions or laws just let the officers do what they are paid to do…enforce the laws and let the city attorneys prosecute.

Mr Mayor make a commitment towards some real solutions before its too late.

PS: Pacific Division Police Department, Thank you for your efforts last week with the beach sweep I hope this will continue on a regular basis for a safer Venice.
