Melrose Action Neighborhood Watch and the L.A.P.D. Wilshire Station will hold it’s first outdoor “Meeting At Your Corner” coming up on Thursday, April 27th at 7:00 p.m.  The location to start off this year’s anti-crime initiative — the corner of Curson Avenue and Waring Avenue. Click here for map location.  The outdoor
“meet up” concept allows for neighbors to get together with our law enforcement first responders — specifically the Los Angeles Police Department’s Wilshire Station officers and commanders that service our area.  This is a great chance to share your safety/crime concerns and nuisance issues.

The meeting’s purpose gives neighbors the opportunity to personally meet our LAPD Wilshire “community cop” senior lead officer Inga Wecker, welcome our new station command staff, along with our new field deputy from Los Angeles City Council member Paul Koretz’ office — Robert Oliver, plus our neighborhood prosecutor from the L.A. city attorney’s office – Nooshi Zahiri.

Our supporter — the Melrose Umbrella Co. will be on hand to provide free refreshments (while supplies last). Grab a free slice of pizza while you can– courtesy of Melrose Action and our neighbor CVS Pharmacy — again while supplies last.

Please share/forward this with your neighbors and area friends. Repost where applicable.  Download the flyer here.  Sign up to get our crime alerts and newsletter including up-to-date crime information for our area here.

Los Angeles Police Commission Wants You To Weigh In On L.A.P.D. Body Camera Video Policy

Melrose Action heard from the Deputy Director at the Policing Project at NYU Law — that is helping the Los Angeles Police Commission gather input from the community on the LAPD’s Body Camera Video Release Policy. This is very important and your views matter.

As you may know, the LAPD’s current policy is not to release body camera videos after there has been an officer-involved shooting. The Commission is considering whether to change the policy, and is looking for public input on what the new policy should be. 

This is a really important opportunity for people to provide input on a policy that undoubtedly will have a significant impact on both the community and the police. 

We are asking for input in two ways:
– Through an online questionnaire at – (click the link) www.LAPDVideoPolicy.org — the website also has a brief video we put together explaining some of the pros and cons of releasing video, as well as a comment portal in case you would like to submit more detailed comments. 

At community forums across Los Angeles. The West Bureau forum is on April 12 at 6:30pm at the (map it here >) Seoul International Park Recreation Center.

Click here to download the flyer to your desktop.  This is important policy that can shape our future — PLEASE SHARE this post

Trespass And Squatting Issues Continue To Plague Melrose Area. Does It Contribute To Crime?

If you live in the Melrose/Fairfax district then you’ve probably been affected in some way (or know someone that has) by prolific trespassers and squatters. Some swear that the proliferation of “McMansions” is the chief cause of these encampments. Could the unprecedented amount of homes and apartment buildings sitting vacant for extending periods of time awaiting demolition be harboring unsavory characters in our neighborhood? A majority of neighbors near these properties say resoundingly — yes in fact they are. Some are quick to point out that the new construction of homes — that typically last several months — play a larger role because they offer new, unmonitored premisses, free access to electrical power, portable restrooms, and even brand-new swimming pools,spas, and roof top decks.

Anywhere in the area that a home or building is vacant for a time — chances are — trespassers, transients, squatters etc have either scaled a fence, broken down a door, or smashed a window to gain entry to that property and set up shop.

Neighbors on either side of Melrose Ave say that they’ve seen encampments on top of garages underneath low hanging trees, underneath occupied homes in crawl spaces, behind garages of homes, residing on outdoor furniture at night, living inside vehicles parked along Waring or Willoughby, in the alley ways, hot-wiring electricity in some cases, and so much more.

The bigger question is — are these people dangerous? Are they committing crimes? Using drugs? Having sex on our property? Are they entering our homes when our back doors or windows are open and unattended? Again — the answer more likely is — its very possible. Why? Because this area is a transient urban area and some neighbors have no clue who lives here and who doesn’t. Piling on to the “transient” theme is the phenomenon that so many homes and apartments are now full time Airbnb night-to-night hotel-like rentals and you can see that it only gets more difficult to gain a grip on who’s an actual neighbor and who isn’t.

What can you do to protect yourself?  First and foremostcall the police if you see unusual, repetitive activity around properties that are empty, new or old. Notify our community cop — our Los Angeles Police Department Senior Lead Officer Inga Wecker and or our L.A. City Attorney Neighborhood Prosecutor Nooshi Zahiri. Contact the L.A. department of building and safety if homes or buildings under construction are not secured properly when unattended. Always check your property when you return home or before you go to sleep at night. Look for tampering of your door locks, windows or garages. Keep your fences maintained and your trees and shrubs trimmed. Install motion lights in your yards. Have a good security system. Think about a security camera system. Adopt a dog from a shelter for added safety. Try and get to know your neighbors. Keep your car doors locked at all times. Walk the area with your mobile devices hidden. The adage goes “IF YOU SEE SOMETHING SAY SOMETHING”! Be part of the solution, not the problem.

Click on the video (or link here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1OCpmcYzmho&t=26s) below to see what’s been prowling around yards and homes in the 700, 800, and 900 blocks of Vista St. Be sure to attend our first Meeting on Crime this Tuesday, March 21st at 7:30 p.m. at the Blu Jam Cafe.

Crime Alert: Armed Robbery at Gardner & Waring May Be Linked To Two Others That Same Night


manwcrimealertLAPD Wilshire is investigating — what may be a string of street robberies — that occurred late friday/early saturday morning this past weekend.

A female victim was walking in the area of Gardner/Waring late Friday evening August 12th, when 2 male Black suspects approached her and grabbed her purse. The victim struggled with the suspects to retain her purse and was struck by one of the suspects in the face. The suspects ran to a red hatchback and fled. There were two additional robberies (Clinton/Genesse and 800 block of Orange Grove Ave) that occurred within 15 minutes of the Gardner/Waring robbery. LAPD Wilshire detectives are investigating and need your help.  If you have any information about these crimes or have surveillance video of the streets near or at these sites, please contact LAPD Wilshire detectives at (213) 922-8205.

As a reminder, this is an urban area. When walking any street anywhere  always  keep your valuables (phones etc) out of sight and try not to walk alone if leaving an establishment late. Keep aware of your surrounds at all times.  Please join us for our next neighborhood crime meeting called “Meeting at your corner” on Wednesday, August 24th, 2016 at 7 p.m. at the corner of Rosewood and Stanley.  Hear directly from our local Los Angeles Police Department personnel how to better protect yourself and how not to become a victim.
