Message from the Area Commanding Officer

Community Members:

I hope you are all having a relaxing and safe summer!  This July, as we enjoy the fireworks, parades, and barbecues that commemorate the adoption of the Declaration of Independence (July 4, 1776), we are reminded of the importance of responsible celebrating.  Before reveling with friends and family, please take a moment to consider these safety tips:  1) Plan a safe way home before beginning the festivities; 2) Designate a sober driver; 3) Leave your car keys at home; 4) Call a taxi, friend, family member, or consider taking public transportation; 5) Call 911 if you see a possible drunk driver on the road; and 6) Take the car keys away from someone who is about to drive impaired and assist him/her in arriving home safely.  In addition to traveling safely, the Los Angeles Police Department and those of us in 77th Street Area would like to encourage you to attend a professional fireworks show instead of using illegal fireworks which can cause devastating injuries and fires.        
 
I am happy to report that even in these warm summer months, our crime statistics are still remarkable with continued decreases in rates of violent, property, and part I crime compared to statistics for 2013.  To date, violent crime decreased 8.2%, property crime dropped 13.5%, and total part I crime continued the trend with an 11.9% decrease.  Clearly, these unprecedented statistics are a commentary on our community-police partnership which is stronger than ever.  Thank you all for doing your part to make our community safer!

It’s always a pleasure updating you on the community events and youth activities that our officers and volunteers work so hard to organize.  This month our personnel are dedicating time to summer youth activities at the South Los Angeles Sports Activities Center located at 720 S. Figueroa where kids from the community are learning arts and crafts, going on field trips, receiving tutoring, and having fun making new friends.  On July 4th, cadets from our very own cadet program here in 77th will be proudly carrying the American flag in the City of Rosemead Independence Day parade.  And later in the month, we will be unveiling our new and picturesque 77th Street mural, created exclusively for 77th by the wildly talented Los Angeles-based artist, Ryan Graeff (Restitution Press).  The artwork will depict landmarks and images associated with South Los Angeles and will honor and reflect the history of 77th.

Finally, in upcoming news for August, and to give you a little preview of what’s around the corner, we are actively preparing for National Night Out, “America’s Night Out Against Crime.”  The campaign began in 1984 to promote community involvement in crime prevention activities, police-community partnerships, and neighborhood camaraderie to send a message to criminals that crime will not be tolerated.  We are making plans for station tours and other exciting events so stay tuned! 

Happy Independence Day!  I wish you and your families a safe and festive holiday.
