Tonight’s Senior Lead Officer Summit at LAPD Harbor Division headquarters introduced the new Cyber Block Captain program as a way to bring Neighborhood Watch to more people. This program will utilize email, Facebook groups and/or smart phone apps to connect each area’s Senior Lead Officer with Block Captains who will in turn contact neighbors on their list.
If you are a coastal San Pedro resident and are interested in being a Cyber Block Captain or learning more about the program please contact Senior Lead Officer Eve Wight at firstname.lastname@example.org or 310-869-2168.
L.A. City Council District 15 has created several Facebook groups to get things started: Coastal South San Pedro Neighborhood Watch, Central San Pedro Neighborhood Watch, and Northwest San Pedro Neighborhood Watch. Anyone with a Facebook account is welcome to join these groups to warn neighbors about crime that has happened or ask about a suspicious car or person.
LAPD Sr. Lead Officer Brian Cook reminds neighbors of the following numbers:
- 911 Emergency call from a landline
- 213-928-8228 Emergency call from a cell phone in the Harbor Area *Program this into your cell phone!
- 877-ASK-LAPD Non-emergency calls
