Lights On in Wilmington

Wilmington Neighborhood walks to take their streets back

Monday, February 6, 2012, thru Friday, February 10, 2012, during the hours of 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Where:
The community meets in front of Holy Family Church, 1220 Sanford Avenue, on the corner of L Street and Sanford Avenue and walks on “L” Street between Watson Street and Avalon Boulevard

Who:
Councilman Joe Buscaino, 15th District
Harbor Area Command Staff
Harbor Area Community Relations Officers

Why:
There was a time when children were able to play outside without their parents worrying about them. There was a time when a woman could walk down her own street after dark without being afraid of being attacked. There was a time when people would go away on vacation and not worry about locking their doors. There was a time when families could sleep in their own beds without wondering if someone might break in. There was a time when people in communities looked out for one another in the spirit of friendship and civic duty. Many people long for those days gone by, especially those old enough to remember. The people of Wilmington do remember and have decided to do something about it.

As a result of the recent increase in violence in the Wilmington Area of Los Angeles, community members, neighborhood activists and the Los Angeles Police Department are joining forces to take back their streets.  

“The solution to crime and violence has never been police or government only”, said Captain Hayes, Commanding Officer Harbor Area.  “They have an important role to play, however, crimes occur when families and neighbors are disconnected and youth feel no one cares. Connected neighbors have stopped bullies, vandalism, drug dealers, predators, burglaries and other self-destructive behaviors as they work together to create a safe neighborhood.”
