Monthly Message from the Area Commanding Officer
Summer time is here! As a public service announcement we always ask that you especially keep an eye on the elderly, children and pets for signs of heat related issues. Too often we have experienced tragedies related to heat that were preventable. If you know of anyone in need for shelter services from the heat please call the 77th Street Area front desk, your Senior Lead Officer, or our community relation’s office. The summer also brings school break. If you are looking for activities to keep kids active during the summer we have an impressive list of programs. Please stop into our station and check out our brochure of services or follow us on Facebook.
We will also once again be supporting the Summer Night Lights (SNL) Program every Wednesday through Saturday from 7pm to 11pm beginning June 26, 2013 to August 9, 2013. At the following locations:
Mt. Carmel Recreation Center
Harvard Recreation Center
Van Ness Recreation Center

iWATCH See Something, Say Something!
WHAT is iWATCH?! - iWATCH, iREPORT, i KEEP US SAFE (iWATCH) is a community awareness program created to educate the public about behaviors and activities that may have a connection to terrorism.
This program is a community program to help your neighborhood stay safe from terrorist activities. It is a partnership between your community and the Los Angeles Police Department. We can and must work together to prevent terrorist attacks.
To learn about the iWATCH program and about the behaviors and activities that you should report, view the videos and review the list of examples. You can also read and download a brochure that explains the program.
Remember that the iWATCH program is about behaviors and activities, not individuals.
Here are examples of behaviors and activities to report:
• People drawing or measuring important buildings.
• Strangers asking questions about security or building security procedures.
• Briefcase, suitcase, backpack, or package left behind.
• Cars or trucks left in No Parking zones in front of important buildings.
• Intruders in secure areas where they are not supposed to be.
• Chemical smells or fumes that worry you.
• People asking questions about sensitive information such as building blueprints, security plans, or VIP travel schedules without a right or need to know.
• Purchasing supplies or equipment that can be used to make bombs or weapons or purchasing uniforms without having the proper credentials.
