Another newly formed Neighborhood Watch group in CD6 is in the Alreta/Panorama City area. They held their first meeting on December 7th, and over 45 people attended! They met at the American Legion Post 817 in Panorama City.
The group formed to help address homeless encampments in the area, which dominated most of the discussion at the first meeting. In attendance at this first meeting were the Senior Lead Officers from LAPD, members of the LAPD HOPE Team, LA Sanitation, as well as folks from the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority.
This group will have a block party early in 2017, and will sponsor clean-ups throughout the year. Their monthly meetings will start in January. Contact my Field Deputy Elizabeth Jimenez in my Sun Valley office to find out how to get involved with them.
