Captain’s Message

13A9
Senior Lead Officer Mark Hyland
Cell Telephone No: (323) 572-3462
E-mail: 24603@lapd.lacity.org

Boundaries
The boundaries for Basic Car 13A9 are 7th Street to the north, Central Avenue to the west, Santa Fe Street to the east and Washington Boulevard to the south.
 
Crime Trends
During this past month, vehicle thefts and vehicles being broken into are the two (2) major crime problems.  These crimes have occurred primarily in the area of Olympic Boulevard &
Alameda Street.

We ask that you secure your vehicle and leave no valuables within plain sight.  If you vehicle is stolen, do not wait several days to have a police report taken.  Immediately, report your vehicle stolen.  This will give officers a greater opportunity to recover your vehicle.

Gang Activity
While no active gang resides in Basic Car 13A9, gang graffiti is sprayed randomly on business walls (primarily at night) by gang members traveling through the area.  If you observe this graffiti, please call 311 for immediate removal.

Community Resources – Volunteer Program
Newton Area currently has openings for interested business people who may wish to help in an array of tasks here at the police station.  Some of the identified duties include helping Area detectives, assisting with Area youth programs and promoting community unity to support the local police.  If you are interested in joining our ranks, please contact Police Officer Talamantez at (323) 846-3937.

Quality of Life Issues
Are you having a problem with dirty alleys, trash, and debris on streets and dirty vacant lots in your neighborhood?  The Department of Public Works, Bureau of Street Services, will respond to your request if you call 311.  A clean neighborhood will keep away many of the nuisances that often lead to other crimes if not addressed immediately.  If you do not receive a timely response, please call me at (323) 572-3462 and I will submit your request at the Council Office.

Traffic Problems

Santa Fe Street and Olympic Boulevard

13A13
Senior Lead Officer Steve Carrillo
Cell Telephone No.: (323) 572-3463
E-mail: 25396@lapd.lacity.org

Boundaries
The boundaries for Basic Car 13A13 are from Adams Boulevard to the south, Central Avenue to the east, 110 Freeway to the west, and to the north is Washington Boulevard, up Maple Avenue, to 9th Street.  My area is mostly commercial district with some residential areas.  We have seven (7) different schools and share a portion of the Fashion District with Central Area.  We are also home to the largest furniture & décor district on the West Coast.

Crime Trends
During this period, thefts seem to be the Basic Cars primary problem. The Fashion District sees majority of this increase and is known for its large number of shoppers during the summertime. This obviously creates a greater opportunity for property crime related thefts. Reporting District (RD) 1321, which is LA Trade Tech College and Metro Court, continues with Burglary Thefts from Vehicles and Grand Theft Auto.  Newton Officers have worked well together with LA Trade Tech Sheriffs/Security in combating this problem.

Gang Activity
Primera Flats (PF) remain active in the area of Trinity Park and continue to vandalize the area with gang-related graffiti.  Newton Gang Enforcement Detail (GED) officers continue to do an excellent job targeting PF’s gang members.  Officers have made numerous arrests of PF gang members which has had a positive impact in the area.  I will continue to work with Coalition for Responsible Community Development (CRCD) to get the graffiti off the walls in a timely manner.

Quality of Life:
Transients are always the main concern to Newton Businesses and Residents.  SLOs continue to work with Department of Public, Bureau of Street Services and Department of Public Works, Bureau of Sanitation on many areas (alley) clean-ups.  We have recently cleaned-up and painted-out graffiti in several alleys east of Broadway and north of Florence Avenue.  If you are aware of any locations that you would like to see addressed, please contact me by phone or E-mail.

Traffic Problems:
One of the Top 5 intersections for traffic collisions is in our area: Main Street and Gage Avenue use caution near this and all other intersections.  Remember not all drivers are as careful as you.  While picking-up or dropping-off your child at school, do not double-park; follow the rules of the road.  Use caution when dropping-off and picking-up your child at school.  Do not user your cell phone or text while operating a motor vehicle, Newton officers will be watching and violators will be CITED! Buckle up and use caution!

Upcoming Events:
None.
