III. Senior Lead Officer Updates:
Officer Pinzon – crime went up 5.5% in his area (2013). The current problems include burglary of motor vehicle. School started at Lock High School, and the violence has returned. The violence at Locke High has spread and patrol is thin.
Officer Martinez – crime is down in his area. “We need to get on board with the senior lead officers.” The community needs to provide more input (town hall meetings etc) the officers only have a certain amount of resources. Burglary and GTA were up last year, but officers anticipate reducing these crimes for next year.
Officer Valdez – crime is down by around 6%. With the assistance of the community the hope is to reduce it even further. There is a smart phone application called “My LA 311” which is an application that you are able to submit requests to. This app allows you to take a picture of the location and the item that needs to be taken care of, and they will be updated.
Officer Hamaoka – crime is down both in property and violent crime. Primary concern is going to be in the imperial court areas. A lot of robberies have been occurring in the area.
Officer Chavez – want to get more community involvement. Also wants to focus on illegal dumping and illegal food vendors.
Officer Lopez – A lot of street robberies have been occurring in his area. A lot of robberies have been occurring form the market to the train station. Patrol has been able to make several arrests from the videos from the security (103rd).
Sergeant Petillo – the chief has declared that 2014 is the year of traffic. The public needs to be educated more about the dangers of each intersection and traffic laws.
