1. WEST LAPD FUNDRAISER EVENT
Please join Sharon Stone, Jimmy Smits, Wanda DeJesus, Rod Martin, PACT, and many other supporters on Saturday, November 1, 2014, for West LA Night, at the historical Hyatt Regency Century Plaza Hotel. The purpose of the event is to raise awareness and funds for the West Los Angeles Community Police Station’s youth programs, and the police officers who “protect and serve” the Holmby Westwood residents each day.
PACT (Police and Community Together) is asking for your support of this event. We’ve proudly supported the West Los Angeles Community Police Station for over 43 years; however, we need your help as a sponsor and/or attendee.
The evening will feature static displays by various Los Angeles Police Department entities, such as SWAT, Bomb Squad, the K-9 Unit, as well as local West LA businesses. Expect one of a kind, silent and live auctions that will amuse and entertain you.
Sponsors for this event will be featured on the West LA Night website (www.WestLANight.com), at the event, and on social media. It is anticipated that more than 300 people will attend this worthwhile fundraiser.

4. BICYCLE SAFETY – NEW LAW
As of last week, the “Three Feet for Safety Act” (Assembly Bill 1371 of 2013) goes into effect in California. This act specifies for the first time a state standard for safely passing bicycles.
The measure requires motorists to pass bicyclists by at least three feet, or, if that’s not possible, to slow down until there is an opportunity to pass safely. Violators face a $35 fine, which goes up to $220 if a driver passing unsafely collides with and injures a bicyclist.
