Police to Conduct Crime Task Force in Foothill Area

 

Los Angeles: On Tuesday, March 19, 2003, dozens of Los Angeles Police Department officers from Foothill Area, Valley Traffic Division, and Valley Bureau Headquarters will focus on violent crime and community quality of life issues in an effort to reduce crime in the San Fernando Valley.

The first target zone is the area considered the Van Nuys Corridor. That is the area two to three blocks on either side of Van Nuys Boulevard from Foothill Boulevard to the east. That are includes the San Fernando Garden housing development and the Pierce Apartments. The second target zone borders Filmore Street to the north, Branford Street to the south, Woodman Avenue to the east and San Fernando Road to the west.

Operations will commence at approximately 7:30 a.m. and will continue past midnight. There will be a zero-tolerance policy for traffic violations and criminal acts in the affected areas.

Recent past task forces in other parts of the Valley have resulted in hundreds of traffic citations and vehicle impounds, and dozens of arrests.

Other similar task forces to combat violent crime and improve the quality of life will be conducted in other parts of the San Fernando Valley.

For further information, contact Commander Michel Moore, Assistant Commanding Officer of Valley Bureau at 818-756-8303, Captain Kris Pitcher, Commanding Officer of Foothill Area at 818-756-8860, or Captain Greg Meyer, Commanding Officer of Valley Traffic Division at 818-756-8722.
