WHERE:
Jackson Family Residence Area
Hayvenhurst Avenue between Libbit Avenue and Ventura Boulevard
Encino, California  

WHO:
LAPD West Valley Area Police Officers
Residents on Hayvenhurst Avenue Area Businesses
        
WHY: To facilitate the media covering the activities at the childhood home of Michael Jackson and current home of members of Michael Jackson’s family.   

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

Since the untimely death of Superstar Michael Jackson, there have been several locations in
Los Angeles where people have gathered to pay their respects.  One of the locations that have become a primary focal point is one of the childhood homes of Michael Jackson and current home of members of his family.

The house exists on a street which is a primary evacuation route and a designated thoroughfare for emergency services.  Under normal conditions, there is no legal parking on that portion of Hayvenhurst Avenue.  Parking violations on Hayvenhurst Avenue normally result in a citation and impound.   However, due to the extraordinary events on Friday, the media and mourners have been accommodated by the closure of the street to all vehicle traffic, except media, local residents and emergency responders.  The Police Department and the Department of Transportation have exercised significant discretion in not citing or towing vehicles.   

UPDATED INFORMATION

These protocols were prepared by the Los Angeles Police Department, in cooperation with the Radio and Television News Association of Southern California.

Effective at 12 p.m. today, Hayvenhurst Avenue will be remain open between Ventura Boulevard and 4714 Hayvenhurst Avenue.  All roadways, except where closed, will be subject to regular parking restrictions.  There is no parking on Hayvenhurst Avenue between Ventura Boulevard and Libbit Avenue.  This means that all vehicles, including media vehicles, will be subject to parking enforcement, up to and including citation and impound.  Some media outlets have indicated that they have negotiated a parking agreement with local residents.  Private written agreements are acceptable only where the concerned vehicle and equipment are entirely removed from the roadway.  Cable runs should be properly covered for pedestrian safety and should be off of the landscaping of the other property owners.                

Effective at 12 p.m., today, the media staging and parking area will be from 4630 Hayvenhurst Avenue (South of the Fire Hydrant) to 4624 Hayvenhurst Avenue on the east side of the street only.  

Only essential media broadcast vehicles are permitted to be parked between 4630 Hayvenhurst Avenue (South of the Fire Hydrant) to 4624 Hayvenhurst Avenue.  This means Satellite and Microwave broadcast vehicles are allowed to park.  

In the event of an emergency, such as a fire, all vehicles must be capable of being moved within five minutes.  This means that all vehicles must be attended by a properly trained and licensed driver, equipped to operate the respective vehicle.

As a continued gesture of respect to the residents, generator use overnight (10 p.m. to 8 a.m. local time) shall be limited to on air time only.  

Media crews are requested to bag and remove their own rubbish.  

To minimize radio interference and health and safety concerns, Satellite trucks must have licensed operators.  A copy of the licenses must be on site.

The space acquired by departing vehicles will be used to downsize the staging area.  NO ADDITIONAL VEHICLES WILL BE ALLOWED.  All media may continue to walk to the staging area.  

These new requirements are necessary for public safety.  The primary public safety issue pertains to the crime fighting resources which are being used to accomplish a street closure.  Other issues are the impact to the residential and business communities in the area.  

Questions regarding this news advisory should be directed to the LAPD Media Relations Section at 213-485-3586.
