BASIC CAR 17A35 Crime Trends and Locations

SLO_Dario_Del_Core

Good news for the Basic Car area as we continue our downtrend in Residential Burglaries and Burglary from Motor Vehicle activity.

The local neighborhoods have been quiet and, through this first quarter of 2014, we have reached the lowest number of vehicles and homes being broken into I ever seen in my time here at Devonshire.

Having said this we need to be more diligent in securing our property and keeping track of the smaller valuables as we are seeing an increase in miscellaneous thefts especially involving cell phones & wallets (while being left unattended) and thefts of delivery packages such as UPS, FED EX etc. especially when they are left on the porch for an extended period of time.

Neighborhood Watch Events:

Our next meeting will be on Tuesday, May 13, 2014 at 7:00 PM at Saint Euphrasia Church, 11767 Shoshone Avenue in Granada Hills.

Crime Prevention Information:

Don’t open your door to strangers – this includes all solicitors. Ask what their business is without opening the door. If they claim they are there to do repairs or maintenance ask them to leave a copy of the work order outside the door way. Confirm the work order with the legitimate agency before granting access to any serviceman.

RULES FOR DOOR TO DOOR SOLICITATION

Legal if-

· Occurring anytime between 8 AM and 8 PM

· The solicitor has the product immediately available

· The solicitor can provide ID if over 18 years of age

· The solicitor has a business license (if he/she is in-fact offering items for sale) – enforced by Office of Finance.

Report all prowlers and suspicious activities to the L.A.P.D. direct dispatch (non-emergency) by calling 1-877-275-5273.

Alert! Imposters Are Scamming LADWP Customers By Phone

Phone-Scam-Flyer-041414thumb

Persistent phone scammers are deceiving LADWP customers into paying non-existent water and power bills with threats of immediate service shut off. Don’t fall victim to phone scammers posing as LADWP “collection” personnel.

  • LADWP employees will NEVER ask for personal payment information over the telephone. They will never ask you to purchase pre-paid cash cards from a convenience store to pay your utility bill.
  • Payment by telephone can ONLY happen through the Department’s voice automated payment system, not with live employees. LADWP personnel do not accept payment information verbally over the telephone.
  • If you get a call asking for a cash card or credit card number or other personal financial information, hang up and call LAPD.

Safety and service excellence are of utmost importance to LADWP. Victimization of our customers will not be tolerated. Impostors can expect to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Read more »
