Officer Yanez - Two weeks ago there was shooting on 114th and Compton. Three suspects were arrested hours later, and the gun that was involved in the shooting was recovered.

Sergeant Petillo – addressing the higher number of shootings in the housing developments. Gang related homicides in Nickerson Gardens as well as Imperial Courts the past couple of weeks/months.
IV. Guest Speaker 1:
Reverend Deborah Mann’s – “Virtuous Woman Ministries: Project Destiny”
Reverend heads projects covering Domestic Violence and Human Sex Trafficking. The project works directly with run aways, prostitutions, and sex trafficking. Attending “Cease Fire” meetings, in which gang members meet to discuss prevention of gang crime. Attributing the increase in violence to younger gang members. In LA County alone, there are over 1600 missing children (run away from a foster home). This epidemic leads to more commercial sex trafficking. This increase in runaways is spreading into “the home.” California census indicates that there are over 200,000 homeless citizens in the county of Los Angeles. Children as young as nine years old have been found to sell commercial sex. These children are not villains, but victims. Rev Mann’s is putting together an agenda to combat sex trafficking, domestic violence, and prostitution. Adults within the community need to take responsibility of the children. “No longer ignore what you see, and call your local law enforcement.” The organization is attempting to educate parents as well as students in middle school to prevent the onset of the behavior.
