Any fairly competent police agency would be ashamed to submit this information since it shows they have no control over their obligations. Unfocused and disorganized.
Reviewing this blotter makes me wonder why this city experiences such uneven law enforcement. About a year ago my apartment was burglarized. I was handed a “report” but there was never an investigation. No signed statement was collected from me, nobody took notes at the scene, no fingerprint lifted off opened new surveillance camera boxes, and no questioning of the suspect that I identified. To make matters worse, this person has stolen my identity, stalked, harassed, burglarized, assaulted, and slandered me. I have submitted at least six more complaints and no investigation. I even have a safe full of evidence.… Read more »
I appreciate Larry that you have brought back the crime blotter that for so long was missing from the news source that your predecessor use to do that is very important to know weekly crime statistics that the city council really doesn’t want to speak upon so much as of late or only recently brought in the discussion! Where else would we residents get the statistics, on a spread sheet during a public safety commission on a Zoom call, That is not always available? We need this available to local residents and citizens in the neighborhood since we can be… Read more »
Time to REfund the police. F the false narrative that all cops are racist or that there’s some systemic plague infecting all law enforcement. What a load of bs
When were they defunded?
Any reasonably competent police entity would be mortified to report this information as it clearly illustrate they have little competence in and control over their responsibilities. A great lack of scope and discipline.
Thanks WeHoVille. Please keep posting the crime stats. People need to be aware and they need to be outraged about the rise in crime. We need sheriffs foot patrols on the streets (especially on weekends in the nightlife
district), we need to support the police and we certainly don’t need to defund them if anything they need more funds for more staffing and training.
Don’t worry. WeHo is working on a kiosk that should put an end to all of this crime.
“We need sheriffs foot patrols on the streets (especially on weekends in the nightlife
The LASD could EASILY implement this. So why aren’t they?
The city dictates how the Sheriff’s Department will deploy the patrol deputies, down to the numbers per shift, how many are on the bike team and on the specialized units. It’s all spelled out in the contract, easily found out if one wanted to discover this. It’s just easier to bash the Sheriffs instead of educating oneself.
This simply is not true. Please stop spreading misinformation.
And who was bashing the sheriffs? What are you talking about?
Check with city hall then sweetie, I spoke with 2 previous captains (Lynda Castro and Kelley Fraser) and confirmed it with WeHo Public Safety. The city dictates the number of patrol positions and pays by contract minutes.
If you are keeping aware of what is going on, the new Public Safety Commissioners referred a 7-0 vote to the Council to consider replacing the Sheriff with our own PD which would be a nightmare. People don’t stop to realize the resources we have with LASD and they need to review the cities that dumped their PD’s in favor of LASD because of the corruption. There are bad “apples” everywhere but with LASD they can be transferred out. And yes there was defunding but I don’t have the stats on how many we lost because of it. Having our… Read more »
