Southwest C-PAB Meeting Minutes
 
 
Los Angeles Police Department
Southwest Area
Community Police Advisory Board Executive Committee
Southwest Division Police Department
March 13, 2014 - 6:30PM

MINUTES


Call to Order:  The meeting was called to order by Sergeant Jim Barlow.

Introductions:  Sergeant I Andre Wright was introduced as the new SLO, (married, five children been in the community for the last 20 years). Also introduced was Shari Farmer, Field Deputy for District Attorney Jackie Lacey, for the Victim-Witness Assistance Program. Ms. Farmer was born and raised in Leimert Park.
 
Welcome & Introduction of Members: Civilian Co-Chair Mr. Johnnie Raines was introduced and requested that other C-PAB members mention who they are and where they are from.

Captain’s Comments:  Captain III Paul A. Snell, Area Commanding Officer
Want to thank members for adjusting the meeting so that he can actually be here to hear from you. It’s important that we share the items we are trying to get done. We are doing tremendously well with crime this year. Out of the 21 divisions reduction of 15.6% at number 7, as a result of our partnership with the community and our SLO’s. In the 1st ten weeks of the year we have met all goals week after week.

We’re looking into predictive policing analytical program down to specific blocks, draft missions to predict where crime is happening with a great degree of certainty.  Allows us to identify problems for the officers, map it for them, and eliminates the crime before it happens. LASER focuses on the violent crimes and can concentrate their efforts there and has seen significant impacts in areas some as high as 28% decrease. We’re “policing smarter.”

Constitutional Policing: We have to continue to talk about the importance of constitutional policing. There is the belief that many of the constitutional policing complaints have been race based. This is just untrue and can be counted on one hand in the city of LA. We are now advocating “communication resolution” bringing the parties together to talk the issue through.  Miscommunication is the number one cause and this communication process is helping instead of just filing a complaint.

Teen C-PAB Comments:  Co-Chair Omar Prudencio, also a part of the Youth Board which is the next up from Teen C-PAB, spoke about the first Southwest Community Police Youth Conference on March 20 at the Expo Center. There will be information on community policing, static displays, lunch and breakfast.  30 schools are expected to attend this event and we are really hoping to have a big impact.

Next Teen C-PAB meeting is Thursday March 27, 2014 at 1:30 PM at the station in the roll-call room.

Basic Car Reports:

SLO Sanchez (Basic Car A1), being hit with thefts at the Target parking lot. Keep your valuables in your trunk or take them with you. Used a bait car but were not able to apprehend anyone. But the presence will make a difference and we’ll be doing another next week.  For women shopping, please keep your purses on your shoulder and not in your cart basket.
SLO Tracy Banuelos (Basic Car A15) West Adams, overall violent crime is down 27%, property crime down 23%, There was a shooting at 27th and St. Andrews Sunday. It involved a Rolling 20’s gang member who was shot and we are focusing efforts there. The last week of February saw several grand theft autos, robberies, and there is a Black P Stone force working in the park.
SLO Nicole Gardner (Basic Car A59) University Park Task Force, lately pretty quiet because we’ve been strategizing a lot with special problems units. Focus is more on campus and building relationships. This is helping us free up other resources. Ofc. Renee Gonzalez, 30 officer unit. Past month, targeted crime Hoover/Adams area. USC has new uniforms that are very similar to ours with a few differences in badges and patches, but almost identical. Unarmed USC security will remain in their green uniforms.
SLO Sunny Sasajima (Basic Car A73) Leimert Park, YTD crime is down in all 24.6 categories except rape. There were 4. One ex boyfriend others internet based. Take care in what you release out in social media. Burglaries are down 20 last year YTD this time, yet this year we are at 10.

Committee Reports:

Blight and Homeless Committee: Meet and produce a report every month that tackles issues of homelessness and blight. In matters of blight, it is only a physical property or location. The report is documented and photographed and followed up with city resources and personnel.

February report approved unanimously.
