Crime Trends:
During the month of April, there continues to be a slight increase in stolen vehicles and burglary from motor vehicles. Prevention is key! Do not leave anything in your vehicle, in plain view that would entice a break-in. Lock your doors and roll up your windows. If possible, park in your driveway. If you must park in the street try and park under a street light.  If you leave town for a few days, ask one of your neighbors to keep an eye on your vehicle. Ask your neighbors to call for police response if they should see suspicious activity.

Several victims of car theft have reported several items stolen from their vehicle. Items such as sunglasses, cell phones, backpacks, purses, laptops, iPods and iPads. Before leaving your vehicle parked, please remove all of your valuables from plain view.

 In most cases suspects involved in burglary from motor vehicles will be apprehended due to concerned neighbors calling in suspicious activity. This is when it becomes important to be a good neighbor and telephone suspicious activity to our police department (see telephone numbers below).  If you witness something that appears out of the ordinary at your neighbor’s house or vehicle, please call 9-1-1.

Illegal dumping has decreased dramatically within the area of Flower/Grand between 92nd St thru 87th St.  The above area has been clean for the last month now. Please ask your neighbors to help keep this area clean. I have organized a number of impromptu cleanups; however I need your help! The Department of Sanitation frequently cleans that area. If you see it happening, report it.  If you have items in need of disposal, simply telephone 3-1-1 and request that the City of Los Angeles remove the trash.

Graffiti from Main Street and Hoover gang-members has increased in Reporting District 1801. If you see this crime in progress, please call 911 and report it. Both problems are considerable eyesores and can be reported to the 3-1-1 system. The 3-1-1 system is used when the suspects have left the area and a request may be placed to clean it up.

If you see problematic gang members loitering in certain areas be a good neighbor and call the police. Below are multiple phone numbers at your disposal.

Algin Sutton Park has a new makeover. Stop by and enjoy the new outdoors recreation activities. Southeast Division SLO’s and HACLA units provided traffic control for our first annual Watts 5K run. The run took place on April 22nd and was a complete success. We look forward to your participation next year.

Southeast Division SLO’s provided traffic control for our local Catholic Parishes Good Friday Procession. St Lawrence, Mother of Sorrows & Asuncion celebrated their annual Good Friday Procession. We look forward to your participation next year.

Basic Car Area 18A34
Senior Lead Officer Floro B. Pinzon
E-mail: 26758@lapd.lacity.org
Cellular Phone: (213) 793-0722

Crime Trends:
During this period, Basic Car 18A34 had a decrease of Part 1 Crimes, 2.7 % from year date. Seven more vehicles were reported stolen and eight more robberies were committed. All the other part 1 crimes had a tremendous decrease so far.  During the first three months of the year, Burglary from Motor Vehicles (BFMV) had an alarming trend. From year to date, BFMV had a decrease of 32.4 %.

Avalon and Century corridor are still the hot spots during this period for street robberies. Victims were robbed of their cellphones or jewelry. Guns, intimidation and bodily force had been the methods in committing the crimes.

Commendable Capers by Officers and Citizens:
Gang and narcotics activities have been plaguing the area of Avalon Boulevard and Imperial Highway. Narcotics users and dealers frequent this area, Due to illegal activities committed in this area, radio calls and citizen complaints had been generated. Officer Pinzon requested the assistance of the Gang and Narcotics Division (GND) to assist him in curtailing the narcotic problems periodically. On April 16, 2014, GND officers worked on this location by using their undercover officers to conduct a buy bust operation. As a result, two suspects made a narcotic transaction to the undercover officer.  The undercover officer subsequently arrested the suspects for Conspiracy in Narcotic Sales. Although, the arrests were not the ultimate solution in addressing the problem, The Gang and Narcotics Division officers are commended for their effort in problem solving, tactics, communication and excellent report writing that led to the suspects’ jailtime.

Crime Prevention Tips:
Community involvement is the best crime deterrent that a neighborhood can have.  Please give serious consideration to joining or starting a Block Club or a Neighborhood Watch Club, if you do not already have one or belong to one in your neighborhood.  Please report any suspicious individuals or activity in your neighborhood.  It is good to monitor and report; and, please do not try to take any enforcement action yourself.  Remember that suspect apprehension requires special training and many police resources not readily accessible to community members. If you believe the situation may arise to an emergency, please call 9-1-1.

Remember, prevent crimes and get to know your neighbors by starting or participating in a Block or Neighborhood Watch Club.  Watch out for each other.  For more details, call Senior Lead Officer Floro Pinzon at 213-793-0722.

Cellular Phone: (213) 793-0725

Crime Trends

During this period, there have been several shootings along the Vermont Corridor, Robberies and  Assaults in this area. The suspects are all different descriptions from juveniles to adults. The area is very busy with vehicles and pedestrians on Figueroa St, Hoover St and Vermont Ave.  Gang and narcotics activity is very high in the surrounding area. Please keep a look out for any suspicious people, lurking in your neighborhood or walking the streets. Southeast patrol units and Gang Officers are working hard to make the area safer and arrest all offenders.  However, community involvement is the best tool to reduce crime.

Quality of Life Issues
The Southeast Area Vice unit is continuously enforcing the prostitution laws along the Figueroa corridor.  The unit makes multiple arrests on prostitution related crimes on daily basis.  These efforts help to improve the quality of life for area residents and reduce crime associated with prostitution.  The Southeast Vice unit will continue to respond to this problem and make prostitution an enforcement priority. The District Attorney’s Office has filed a prostitution injunction on some of the repeat offenders on the Figueroa Corridor. This will help to control the prostitution activity on Figueroa Street.

Crime Prevention Tips
Due to numerous crimes in the area, it is a good practice to be aware of suspicious persons loitering around cars or near your place of residence.  Please call the police to report any potential criminal or gang activity.  Another good tip is to get to know your neighbors.  This will make it easier for neighbors to assist each other during an emergency.

Community Events

Crime Trends
The area of 18A49 is off to a great start for 2014.  I am happy to report that both violent crime and property crime are down for the year (compared to 2013 statistics).  However, I’m sure we’ll all agree there is always room for improvement. With that being said, here are the biggest problems affecting our basic car area.

Recently there has been an increase of residential burglaries inside and around the Imperial Courts Housing Development. The vast majority are being committed by young males who will enter the apartments/houses through a second story window (while standing on an awning that covers the front door).  These crimes are occurring IN BROAD DAYLIGHT.  If you see any suspicious activity such as this please call 911 immediately!!!  Please look out for one another!  If your house was being broken into you would want your neighbor to do the same.  Remember, you don't have to give your name or contact info (if that's what you wish).

During the nighttime hours, the areas of 103rd Street to Santa Ana & Wilmington Ave to Juniper St. has seen an increase of burglary from motor vehicles.  These property crimes are occurring during the late hours (midnight to 4am).  I cannot STRESS enough the importance of not leaving valuables in your cars overnight.  Also, make sure to lock your car doors as well, even if you are away for a short amount of time. Thieves love an easy target... so please don't become one.

I would like to remind residents in the area to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activity that they encounter.  As always when dealing with the 9-1-1 operator, your identity can remain confidential and the responding officers WILL NOT contact you, if that is your desire.  When reporting a crime (such as the above-mentioned burglaries) a description of the suspects to include ethnicity, approximate height and weight as well as clothing worn is a huge help to responding officers.  If the suspects leave the location, their method (such as on foot or in a vehicle) and their direction of travel is helpful information.  You can also call me on my cell phone.  I will keep all conversations confidential if you wish.

I have also started an email distribution that details the crimes that occur in your neighborhood.  It’s a great tool that enables you to be informed on a timely basis.  I regularly send this out once per week.  Our list is up to 40+ people and the response to this information has been very positive.  If you would like to receive this information, please feel free to email me at 36892@lapd.lacity.org or you can contact me directly at 213.793.0724.

Crime Prevention Tips
To report any crime element in your neighborhood, you can call anonymously the Southeast Area Police Station at 213-972-7813.  Please remember these important phone numbers for Non-Emergency police response: 1-877-275-5273 (1-877-ASK-LAPD) or 9-1-1 for police, fire or medical emergency.
