Pacific C-PAB Meeting Minutes
 
 
Pacific Area
Community Police Advisory Board
Minutes – Board Meeting

November 20, 2013

Present:    Rob Kadota, Pat Karasick, Gloria Prado, Nicholas Hipplsley-Coxe, Steve Freedman, Dawn Suskin, Lori Voss, Stewart Oscars, Chris Williams, Bill Koontz, Anna Petrova.

LAPD:    Captain Brian Johnson, Sgt. Jeff Merlo, SLO Kristan Delatori, SLO Adrian Acosta, SLO Juan Ceja and Officer Lisa Gropp.

Guest:    Kathleen Thornhill and  Joseph Reyes

Call to Order: Rob Kadota called the meeting to order at 7:00 P.M.

LAPD Co-Chair Captain Brian Johnson’s Report:   Captain Johnson greeted all present at the meeting.

Captain Johnson introduced newly promoted Senior Lead Officer Adrian Acosta who will be assigned to A25’s area.  Pacific is very fortunate to have such a qualified police officer such as Adrian…… Congratulations!

Crime Statistics:

Captain Johnson reported that Year-to-Date Part I crimes are down 4% , however, violent crimes are up 9%.  There were 18 assaults reported, which includes Ocean Front Walk and LAX incident.  LAX is up 30% in thefts.  Super Block Captains need more eyes and ears working together to prevent property crimes.  We need people to take ownership of their neighborhoods.  For example, there have many calls for service in the Westchester area.

Captain Johnson’s goal is to have more engagement between CPAB and youth.  We need to engage youth in better activities….starting with developing a Teen CPAB and get younger members in Pacific involved.

Good things are happening, but more work needs to be done. A) Need to counter violence at Howard Hughes; B) 1 arrest/5 robberies on the Venice Corridor; C) Councilman Bonin held a press conference and offered a $50,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the murder suspect on Washington & Pacific.  We need the public’s help to arrest the suspect.

Captain Johnson is committed to Constitutional Policing reminding Officers to continue to do their job with respect, dignity, and legally without exception! Be engaged in the community.

We ask the community, Neighborhood Councils, Neighborhood Watch groups to help prevent crime by reiterating Lock It. Hide It. Keep It. Please, please remind people to remove all valuable items from their vehicle and remember to always lock their vehicles.   We are asking for everyone to be vigilant ….. If you see something, say something!

Comments:

More police presence is requested on Howard Street in the Oxford Triangle.  The Venice Neighborhood Council does not always agree with LAPD;  however, they are working toward a compromise.

CD #11 supports LAPD in providing public safety.  Business owners need to take a proactive approach and install lights, security cameras and “ownership” of the area.  Continuing efforts by the Captains, as well as, networking will combat these problems.

Rob Kadota: The CPAB elections are as follows:

Co – Chair : Rob Kadota (unanimous)
Assistant Co-Chair : Gloria Prado (unanimous)

Captain Johnson expressed appreciation for services rendered and stated how proud he was to have them volunteer for next year.
