Next Wednesday — September 16th at 7:15 p.m. — the Melrose Action Neighborhood Watch Meeting At Your Corner returns at the corner of Waring Ave. and Curson Ave.
The is the first in a series of events to bring neighbors and public safety officials together outside, literally on street corners, to discuss issues relating to crime and other matters in our neighborhood.
This is an opportunity to meet with representatives from LAPD Wilshire Division and other Los Angeles officials. Those scheduled to be there include LAPD Wilshire Commander Capt. Howard Leslie, L.A. City Attorney Neighborhood Prosecutor Nooshi Zahiri, and representatives from Council Member Paul Koretz’ office.
Also scheduled to attend is our Senior Lead Officer (SLO) for Basic Car area 7A1 (west of La Brea Ave.). Depending on where we look for information, we may meet one or more of our SLOs. In case you’re wondering what that means, we have heard that our “official” SLO is Officer Inga Wecker, but she will not be on patrol during a brief medical issue. So we have an interim SLO — Officer Ray Moreno.
Come out to this Meeting At Your Corner to find out what is really going on regarding our SLO and other matters. And this event is also supported by the Melrose Business Improvement District (BID), so it really is an event for our neighborhood. The LAPD Mobile Command Post will be there to help identify the proper location when you are there.
