LAPD: Community Crime Report 2/18/15 to 3/4/15

West Los Angeles Area, Basic Car 8A29

COMMUNITY ALERT!
Protect your home from Residential Burglary. A common MO that has been occurring is suspects who typically knock or ring the doorbell to verify if the resident is home. When there is no answer, the suspects enter the side or rear of the residence and force entry by smashing the window or door glass to gain entry. Suspects are targeting the master bed and bath areas of the home and removing Jewelry and small electronics.
If you are home when someone knocks on the door or rings the doorbell, announce yourself to let them know that someone is home but do not open the door unless you verify who they are and you know the person at the door.
Another Burglary trend that has been occurring is construction thefts and break ins. Items of value being targeted are construction tools, equipment, appliances and building materials. If you observe after hours suspicious activity at a construction site or major remodel location, call 911 immediately!
The Los Angeles Police Department recommends the following tips to help secure your home and harden the target.
• ALARMS: Ensure that security alarms are in good working order and set when not at home whether leaving for 10 minutes or 10 hours.
• ALARM RESPONSE: Consider a private patrol alarm response to enhance your current alarm and security system. In many cases private patrols are already contracted in many neighborhoods or associations.
• SURVEILLANCE CAMERAS: Web based surveillance camera systems will allow homeowners to view and monitor activity from any smartphone or computer which are motion sensor activated and will alert your device when there is activity. They also lend valuable information and clues to the investigation.
• MOTION SENSOR LIGHTING: Install motion sensor lighting around your home to illuminate normally dark areas around the home. This will also alert residents to outside activity around the home when motion lights are activated.
• GATES: Ensure that all gates and access points to the side or rear of the residence are locked and secured.
• DOOR AND WINDOW LOCKS: Ensure that all doors and windows are locked and secured with sturdy secured locks and that there are second locking mechanisms securing all doors and windows as a second line of defense.
• MAKE IT LOOK LIKE YOU'RE HOME…Even when you're not.
• NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH: Monitor suspicious activities in your neighborhood and alert your neighbors. Should the activity escalate to a crime about to occur, crime in progress or crime that just occurred, CALL 911 IMMEDIATELY!
• SECURITY PATROLS: Consider after hours on site security at construction sites or major remodel projects. Many neighborhoods contract with private security patrols which monitor neighborhoods and can quickly respond to burglar alarm activations or reports of suspicious activity when they occur.

Leonard Nimoy, Long Time Bel~Air Resident, Passed Away Friday Morning

Leonard Nimoy sits in the living room of his home in the Bel Air neighborhood of Los Angeles, in front of a large format photograph by Thomas Struth. He bought the home in 1987. 'I was single at the time—my marriage of 33 years had just ended—and I had been looking at modest places within a specific price range,' he says.

UPDATE: LA DWP Bel-Air Road Area Project: ON HOLD


We received word this morning from the LA DWP Project Supervisor overseeing the Bel-Air Road Area project that work in our area will be put on hold from approximately one month. A crew is tentatively scheduled to be back in our area in late March/early April to resume and finalize the project.

The remaining work will take approximately 5-weeks.

All equipment from DWP has already been removed from the area, with the exception of the steel plates necessary for the road. Those will remain at least til the project resumes, and likely throughout the remainder of the the work.
