Update on the May 5 homicide

Following the homicide in South Robertson on May 5, SORO NC is working closely with West LA Police Department and CD 10 to keep the community informed. Click to download an update from Captain Evangelyn Nathan of West LAPD from Friday, May 7 in both English and Spanish. The flyer is also being distributed throughout the immediate neighborhood.

SORO NC is currently organizing a community meeting for residents to speak directly with the LAPD. Further information will be posted here.

CERT: Emergency Response Team Training

Monday Evenings from 6:30-9:00 pm
May 3, 2010 through June 14, 2010

Location:
Simon Wiesenthal Center
Third Floor
1399 S. Roxbury Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90035

Once again, SORO NC's Emergency Preparedness sub-committee and C-PAB Neighborhood Watch are sponsoring a FREE emergency preparedness training course from the Los Angeles Fire Department.

CERT Training is vital for a large city like Los Angeles. Learn how to be prepared for earthquakes, acts of terror, civil unrest, fire and any natural disaster. In the event of a disaster you need to be prepared to be on your own for 72 hours or more. Los Angeles City First Responders (911) will be overburdened and may not be able to help.

You need to be prepared to help yourself, your family and your neighbors. This course will teach you how.

REGISTER NOW!

Hamilton High Incidents

The press is reporting that two youths (not Hamilton students) were detained yesterday trespassing at Hamilton High. They were taken to the West LA police station by School Police after refusing to cooperate.
 
Threatening messages, warning of violence on 4/24 (today), were also found in the boy's bathroom, although it is not clear whether they were linked to the trespassing incident. The school administration has beefed up security and is actively working with LAPD on their investigation. A reward has been offered for information resulting in a conviction.
 
Hamilton administration acted promptly, the school remains open, and classes are proceeding as usual.
 
You can find more details at the links below; we'll keep you updated as more information becomes available. 
 

Public Safety Committee

Public Safety Committee

If you have concerns about any of the following—crime, emergency preparedness, school safety, gang violence, first aid/cpr or graffiti—then this is the committee to attend. 

Meetings are usually attended by our City Council members' Field Deputies, the neighborhood attorney from the City Attorney's Office, LAFD, CERT and LAPD's Senior Lead Officers, so stakeholders can have meaningful interaction with those people responsible for protecting our community.

The Public Safety Committee has been very active over the years- planning and promoting various safety related programs and issues, such as:

  • Neighborhood Watch Programs
  • Emergency Preparedness Fair at SORO FEST
  • CPR/First Aid/AED Classes
  • Coffee With A Cop Events
  • CHP Car Seat Check Events
  • Bike Safety
  • Active Shooter Presentations
  • Community Emergency Response Team / Neighborhood Emergency Team
  • Emergency Communications Demonstrations
  • SAFE Passages program for Students
  • Fire Department Pancake Breakfast
  • Safety Patrol
  • LAPD Cadets
  • Town Halls on Disaster Awareness
