Two organizations related to local policing and safety issues in our area have created new or updated websites.
One of these is our local police station – LAPD Wilshire Division. They’ve set up a new website at lapdwilshire.weebly.com. The website includes information about the station, the Senior Lead Officers (SLOs), crime statistics and more. There are also links there to the LAPD Wilshire social media sites, including Facebook and Twitter.
The other is Melrose Action, which recently updated their website at www.melroseaction.org. This is a very active Neighborhood Watch group in our area, focusing on the area covered by LAPD Wilshire Basic Car area 7A1. (The SLO for this area is Art Gallegos.) This is the area from Beverly Blvd. north to the West Hollywood border, and from La Brea Ave. west to the West Hollywood border. (Click here for a map of all of LAPD Wilshire’s Basic Car areas.) The Melrose Action website includes a lot of useful information, including local resources. Melrose Action is also on social media, including Facebook and Twitter.
Along with LAPD, Melrose Action is one of the main organizers of the annual National Night Out held on the first Tuesday of August at Poinsettia Park. This year’s event is in just a few weeks, on August 5th.
Since both of these organizations deal with crime, this is an opportunity to remind everyone that one of the most common crimes is Burglary from Motor Vehicles. See our post from last year for a video message from LAPD Wilshire Captain Eric Davis and the reminder to Lock It – Hide It – Keep It.
