Year to date, around 1,000 citizens of the Hollenbeck community have been victims of auto-related thefts. To help prevent this number from rising, the Los Angeles Police Department’s “Lock it, Hide it, Keep it” program will be a key component of this effort
by keeping the community informed of the number of vehicle related crimes, grand theft auto and burglary theft from vehicles, that have occurred.

This year the Boyle Heights Neighborhood Council and the Police Advisory Board, in conjunction with LAPD Hollenbeck Area, would like to further reduce those incidents by providing steering wheel locks and license plate security screws to community members of the Hollenbeck Area.

For further information please contact Sergeant Minh Nguyen, Officer-in-Charge, Hollenbeck Community Relations at 213-793-0747.
