Neighborhood Watch follow-up

LAPD Sr. Lead Officer Eve Wight has a follow-up to Monday’s Neighborhood Watch meeting in South Shores for all that could not attend:

1. We continue to address the issue of trash scavengers in the area, one guy was recently cited, both in South Shores and in North Western San Pedro where his vehicle was impounded.

2.  Crime in South Shores has been pretty low for the last couple of weeks, and a lot of that has to do with you folks.  Clearly you have been diligent about locking your doors and windows, and not leaving valuables in plain view in your vehicles and homes.  GOOD WORK! Lets keep it up.  Unfortunately, however, the rest of San Pedro isn’t doing so great.  So it is important to maintain your good security habits when you are out and about around town.

3. The Albertson’s on 25th and Western has been seeing an increase in what we in the Police business call a “Beer Run.”  Kids come in and grab a six pack then make a run for it.  These crimes are thefts, but they can wind up being reported as a”Robbery” when the suspect is confronted by and employee or citizen and uses force to escape capture.  There has already been one robbery of this type reported at the Albertson’s.  Be mindful that just because the Daily Breeze crime report says robbery, it doesn’t necessarily mean bad guys with guns and ski masks.  I have already spoken with the management at the store and we discussed come possible solutions to the problem.  The most obvious of course in increased security.  I urge you all as I did at the meeting to write a letter to Albertson’s Corporate Offices.  Let them know you don’t feel safe shopping there and that you are hoping that the Corporate office can give the store some support in getting extra security.

4.  Rec and Parks will be making some updates and improvements to Alma Park [21st St and Meyler] in the hopes that it will reduce the amount of criminal activity that has been developing there.  I will let you folks know how the improvements are going.

5.  We recently had an issue with supposed “Charity” curb repainters.  They come by and leave you a notice that says if you don’t want your curb repainted post this sign on your door.  If you don’t post the sign, they repaint your curb and expect you to pay.  You are under no obligation to pay for a service that you did not request.  Don’t let these guys intimidate you.  If they come down to the neighborhood and you feel as though they are getting aggressive, call 911.

6.  I attended a meeting today regarding the landslide.  There is going to be some work done over the next two months to clear up the area, secure the raw edge and create some drainage for water, hopefully before the rainy season really gets under way.

7.  We also talked about the cyber block captain program that we are trying to get started here at the station.  The CBC would be our main contact person for their block or area and they would maintain an email list of their neighbors.  We here at the Station could then forward out crime or suspect information to the CBC who would then be able to share that information with his or her email list.  We are asking for volunteers for this position.  It would require you to “pound the pavement” a little bit and get some additional names and emails, but once the lists get going we think that it will be an awesome resource.  Please email me if you are interested in volunteering as a CBC on your block or in your area.

8.  Rec and Parks has received the request to trim the greenery in and around Bogdanovich Park, so they have it on their list and hopefully will get to it sooner rather than later!
