LAPD

August 2011 Captains Message:

As I attend meetings and social events in Pacific Area I am often approached by concerned citizens about crime in their neighborhood and what can they do about it. My best answer is always “Neighborhood Watch”.

Neighborhood Watch programs are still the most effective means available for keeping crime out of neighborhoods. Pacific Area Neighborhood Watch programs unite officers with local organizations and individual residents in a community-wide effort to recognize and reduce crime. Neighbors working together with officers are a formidable crime fighting team.

In this working partnership with Pacific Area Officers some ground rules have to be in place. The community is the eyes and ears of the team, observing and obtaining vital information. Pacific Area Officers are the hands-on apprehension of the team. They have the training and equipment to affect an arrest. By adhering to this rule we can form a dynamic crime fighting team in your neighborhood.

Contact the Pacific Area Senior Lead Officer in your area at (310) 202-4515, and they will assist you in starting a program in your neighborhood. A Pacific Area Senior Lead Officer will be available to assist at your first meeting and discuss crime concerns and quality of life issues specific to your neighborhood or community.

It is my belief that belonging to your Neighborhood Watch group will be enjoyable and fun. By working together, we can continue to make Pacific Area one of the safest communities in Los Angeles.

JON F. PETERS, Captain Commanding Officer Pacific Community Police Station

District News
Note: The crime statistics quoted are taken from a report published weekly by the City Of Los Angeles’ Information Resources Division. These statistics are the most current available and represent the period of July 1, 2011 through July 31, 2011.

Basic Car 14A11 Venice Beach District
Senior Lead Officer Theresa Skinner – Cell Phone # (310) 622-3968
Basic Car Coordinator Sergeant Merlo – # (310) 482-6334

Crime Trends:

The following are the crime statistics representing July 1, 2011 through July 31, 2011:

Aggravated Assaults: 4
Burglary / Theft from vehicle: 14
Robbery: 7
Burglary (Residential/Business): 13
Grand Theft Autos: 7
Sexual Crime: 1
Homicide: 0
Theft: 45

During this rating period Theft (Petty) has become a problem in the Venice Beach Marina Del Rey Peninsula areas. Last period aggravated assault was our main focus of concern and we cut that problem in half. This period Petty Theft needs our attention. Petty theft is the taking of property without owners consent. Petty theft is often a crime opportunity, meaning the suspect observes property he or she may desire and just takes it. Teach your family to place all items of value away (Garage, Storage-box, Basement, etc.) in their proper place. Lock and secure all doors and windows along with any storage areas. If you observe any suspicious activities call the police right away.

Home safety tips:

Remove advertisements from your front porch or door as quickly as possible. An accumulation of fliers is a very good indicator to a burglary suspect that no one is home.

Reminder:

• PACIFIC RESERVE MEETING Thursday, August 11, 2011 @ 7:00 p.m. Pacific Community Station 12312 Culver Blvd., Los Angeles


Basic Car 14A13 Oakwood District

Senior Lead Officer Theresa Skinner – Cell Phone # (310) 622-3970
Basic Car Coordinator Sergeant Merlo – (310) 482-6334

Crime Trends
• The following are the crime statistics representing July 1, 2011 through July 31, 2011:

Aggravated Assaults 1
Burglary / Theft from Vehicle 6
Robbery 0
Grand Theft Auto 2
Burglaries (Residential/Business) 6
Sexual Crime 0
Homicide 0
Theft 13

• During this rating period Theft (Petty) has continued to be a problem in our area. I am proud to say overall crime for the third consecutive period has continued to decrease. Petty theft continues to be a problem in our area. Petty theft suspects often times described as opportunist criminals because they take what is left outside or unsecured items that are usual hand held small items. Teach family members to place all items where they belong, lock and secure all items in the garage or storage bin. Lock and secure your property any time it is not occupied. If you observe any suspicious activities contact the police right away.
