LAPD | Crime Alerts and Contact Information

Monday, July 7th, 2014


If you are on the sidewalk while talking/texting on your cellphone, please be careful! We have had a few cellphone snatches this last week. Suspects target people who are very distracted with their devices.

Thieves are still targeting catalytic converters however, this last week has seen fewer thefts and with a wider variety of vehicles (not just mainly Honda Elements).

Scammers are still actively posing as debt collectors, usually claiming to be from a utility company.

Just a reminder, when your vehicle is parked: LOCK IT, HIDE IT, KEEP IT. Wilshire is constantly experiencing burglaries and thefts from vehicles. We have seen thieves targeting vehicles for break-ins for things as inexpensive as spare change and phone chargers!

FEMA’s emergency guide

Saturday, July 5th, 2014

FEMA (www.ready.gov) has some excellent resources for emergency preparedness:

Through its Ready Campaign, the Federal Emergency Management Agency educates and empowers Americans to take some simple steps to prepare for and respond to potential emergencies, including natural disasters and terrorist attacks. Ready asks individuals to do three key things: get an emergency supply kit, make a family emergency plan, and be informed about the different types of emergencies that could occur and their appropriate responses.

All Americans should have some basic supplies on hand in order to survive for at least three days if an emergency occurs. Following is a listing of some basic items that every emergency supply kit should include. However, it is important that individuals review this list and consider where they live and the unique needs of their family in order to create an emergency supply kit that will meet these needs. Individuals should also consider having at least two emergency supply kits, one full kit at home and smaller portable kits in their workplace, vehicle or other places they spend time.

  • Water, one gallon of water per person per day for at least three days, for drinking and sanitation
