Neighborhood Watch Walk

This evening I joined about a dozen or so residents and about eight LAPD officers for a neighborhood watch walk. We passed out flyers with contact numbers, advice to prevent crime and a Yahoo! Groups address to inform people of community events and criminal activity in the area.

I looked over the site and found out that one recent tactic has teams of criminals knocking on doors asking for help to look for a cat and while the person is distracted the other criminal steals jewelry and other small valuable items.

We need to all watch out for each other and keep informed.
