Melrose Action Neighborhood Watch together with the L.A.P.D. Wilshire Station have set our first “Meeting at Your Corner” date for Wednesday, June 22nd. The location will be at the corner of Curson and Waring Avenue and start at 7 p.m. This neighborhood “meet-up” will focus on the increase in crime in our area as well as traffic related issues.
Our newly appointed commanders from our Wilshire station will be on hand to meet with neighbors and share data on crime trends as well as hear and learn about your concerns relating to public safety. Also present — our “community cop” Senior lead officer Inga Wecker, our Los Angeles city attorney neighborhood prosecutor Nooshi Zahiri, and John Darnell, Senior Deputy from Los Angeles City Council member Paul Koretz’ office.
The goal of these “meet-ups” is to help make our area safer by shedding light on issues that concern us all. Additionally, the mere presence of our police and neighbors gathering at a corner in our area can on it’s own be a deterrent to crime.
Tell your neighbors to join us. If you’re on Facebook please hit the share button below to help get the word out. This is the first in a series of “Meetings at Your Corner” planned over the course of the summer. If you’d like a future meeting to be considered at a corner near you or you’d like to help, just email us here.
