Olympic Division Community Police Advisory Board Update - May 2014
Since the beginning of the year, Wilshire Park has had 17 break ins, 30% have been the result of leaving windows open or doors unlocked. Others have been because properties did not had alarm systems or the alarms were not activated when the break in occurred.
In the last week, LAPD has made two arrests in our area.
Olympic Division has now gotten some additional resources to help deal with this issue. You may or may not have noticed the increased patrol in the area, and unmarked cars. Please, if you see ANYTHING SUSPICIOUS...PLEASE CALL 911 AND REPORT IT!!!
With the temperatures up, make sure you lock all of your doors and secure your windows when you leave the house...and turn on your security systems if you have them.
BE AWARE OF YOUR SURROUNDINGS AT ALL TIMES!!!
Video surveillance and security systems are highly recommended.
Install a tracking software on your iPads, laptops and computers.
Take videos and pictures of your valuables. Write down serial numbers and tag your valuables.
Do not leave valuables in your master bedrooms. Master bedrooms are the first place criminals look. If you have expensive jewelry, put it in a safety deposit box.
Know your neighbors! Tell your trusted neighbors if your going to be gone out of town and have them check on your home.
Park a car in your driveway if your going to be gone for a period of time.
Get sensor/motion detector lights to go on and off at night times.
Stop mail and news paper delivery if your going to be out of town.
HIDE IT...LOCK IT...KEEP IT!!!
Make sure you do not leave any valuables or items visible in your cars and make sure you lock your car.
Take what ever precaution you need to make your self, your home and your valuables safe!
And...let's get our neighborhood Block Clubs going...very soon!
