Also attending the conference will be surviving family members of loved ones who have recently lost their lives in collisions, which have occurred in the South Los Angeles Community.

Crime Alert Information regarding a fatal hit and run collision that occurred on February 23, 2002, which resulted in the death of Rena Fields, a 39 year-old resident of Los Angeles, will be presented. Photographs of the vehicle being sought will be displayed, Fields’ sister and daughters will be in attendance, and plan to provide statements pleading for the public's help in locating the hit and run vehicle and driver. Issues of public safety and traffic awareness will also be discussed.
