Melrose Action Neighborhood Watch is starting a new meeting program, “bringing them to a street corner near you.”
Starting next Wednesday, August 27th, the Los Angeles Police Department’s Wilshire Station and Melrose Action Neighborhood Watch will hold meetings about crime on actual street corners around the Melrose/Fairfax corridor area of Los Angeles. The goal of the “Meeting at your Corner” program is to bring residents out of their homes — almost
spontaneously — to see what’s going on and, hopefully, build stronger community relations
The meetings will be hosted by LAPD Senior Lead Officer Art Gallegos. The LAPD Wilshire Station will have its Mobile Command Post Vehicle there plus special guests.
The first “Meeting at your Corner” will be at the corner of Waring Avenue and Curson Avenue on Wednesday, August 27th at 7:30 p.m.
The Melrose Action Neighborhood Watch area is bounded by Beverly Blvd. on the south, Romaine Ave. on the north, La Cienega Blvd. on the west and La Brea Ave. on the east. This overlaps with the section of Melrose Village west of La Brea Ave., and this first meeting will be in Melrose Village.
