3. LAPD CRIME REPORT
BURGLARY THEFT FROM MOTOR VEHICLE ALERT!
An automobile is never a safe or secure place to leave any valuables whether locked or unlocked. If any property is left unattended in the car, even for just a few minutes, IT WILL BE STOLEN! Even something as simple as a small sun glass case, an empty backpack or gym bag will cause your car window to be smashed resulting in hundreds of dollars in damage alone.
Car burglars are stealing a variety of small electronics and valuables. The top items being taken in most car burglaries are back packs, portable GPS systems, IPODS, cellular smart phones, lap top computers, IPADS, purses, wallets and money.
The West Los Angeles Area continues to be a target rich environment. Based on the history and information from arrests that have been made, we know there are a variety of car burglars that canvass the west side neighborhoods of Los Angeles to commit their crimes. Although many arrests have been made, the crimes continue occur. This tells us there are numerous suspects that are targeting the area.
The Los Angeles Police Department is making every effort to combat this problem. Community awareness and involvement is instrumental to the prevention of these crimes.
If valuable property is not left inside cars, eventually thieves will seek out other areas to commit their crimes. Please do not leave ANY personal property visible in the car!
Remember to Lock It, Hide it, Keep It!

A resident recently reported that her dog was attacked by another dog while they were walking through the neighborhood. Both dogs were on leashes, but one dog broke away from the dog walker and attacked the other dog, causing injury.
Please take appropriate precautions with your dogs to keep our neighborhood safe for everyone, including pets and children. Remember to hold leash firmly, stay off your cell phone and avoid other distractions while walking your dog. Your dog is your responsibility. Thank you.
