Police to Conduct Zero-Tolerance Task Force in Van Nuys Area

"Police to Conduct Zero-Tolerance Task Force in Van Nuys Area"

 

Los Angeles: On Wednesday, October 23, 2002, dozens of Los Angeles Police Department officers from Operations Valley Bureau will focus on violent crime and community quality of life issues in an effort to reduce crime in the San Fernando Valley.

The targeted area is roughly bordered by the Southern Pacific Railroad tracks on the north, Victory Boulevard on the south, the 405 Freeway on the west, and the flood control channel east of Woodman Avenue. Operations will commence at 7:30 a.m. and will continue past midnight. There will be zero-tolerance for traffic violations and criminal acts in the affected area.

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

Other future 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 Michael Moore, Commanding Officer of Operations Valley Bureau at 818-756-8303, Captain Robert McNamara, Commanding Officer of Van Nuys Area at 818-756-8332, or Captain Greg Meyer, Commanding Officer of Valley Traffic Division at 818-756-8722.

This media advisory was prepared by Public Information Officer Jack Richter, Media Relations Section, 213-485-3586.
