Weekly Crime Update with SLO Lavenson and More

Special olympics 2.jpg

I hope to see some of you at the Felicia Mahood Senior Center today at noon as the UCLA Jazz Ensemble entertains our seniors.  I am so proud to work with the WLANC, WLA Civic Center Revitalization Committee and the West LA Community Coalition we have made the Civic Center, clean, kid friendly and most of all safe.  We have a production company that would like to use our center for a major movie shoot.  Thank you, everyone who has contributed, this is a fantastic team effort.  We have had movies and concerts in the band shell for our beloved seniors and kiddos.  We could use more support and donations to make the outside safe as the concrete benches and tables pose a hazard. They need to be removed and rendered safe, this project will take some additional resources.  Thank you for your assistance and support.

WLA had a great day as we carried the Torch for the Special Olympics through the streets of West Los Angeles.  I was fortunate enough to attend the opening ceremony on Saturdayin Long Beach.  It was a true gift to watch the smiles on the faces of these special athletics as we celebrated their accomplishments. 


Thank you all for the information that was related to several crimes that we had last week.  This week was quite busy with our quality of life issues, e.g., homeless and narcotics related.  I am glad to report that our Narcotics unit has made several good arrests.  Our patrol units have been extremely diligent dealing with a plethora of issues.  I have several area that are receiving extra patrol from our patrol officers.
