Crime/Neighborhood Watch

Crime Fighting Resources and E-Policing

Rob Schraff

Your Mount Washington Association has been active this year on the public safety front, hosting LAPD Neighborhood Watch public outreach officers to guide us through the process of creating Neighborhood Watches, and working with the ASNC to attempt to get Neighborhood Watch signs. We are also lucky, even with recent modest surges in property crime, that Mount Washington remains a relatively low crime neighborhood.

Crime Report

Anna Carpenter

During the holiday season the biggest concern seemed to be keeping the UPS, Fedex, and other packages from being stolen, since there were people following the delivery trucks. In fact, thieves were caught on video (again by Eric on Glenalbyn) checking out his neighbor’s front door, then taking down one of his cameras. (You can check out the surveillance video on the MWA Facebook page, if you wish.)

Summer Burglaries and the Neighborhood Watch

Anna Carpenter

This summer has been a bit turbulent in terms of break-ins and car thefts, with a high spike in July. I heard about home burglaries almost daily and when I went on the crime timeline on the yellow dots sprinkled over the map and the timeline gave me a confirmation of what was happening.

Neighborhood Watch Information

Natalie Seaman

During the last few months in Mount Washington there appears to have been a spike in petty and not so petty crime. I live on Avenue 37 and we have had four or five incidents ranging from stolen batteries to stolen cars. We have a pretty tight community on this street but we realized recently that we have become a bit lax when it comes to security, specifically in relation to our possessions, and we have not really been paying attention to the suspicious activities taking place in the neighborhood. We needed to get together and stat! We needed a Neighborhood Watch Meeting.

Burglaries Alert for Mount Washington

Anna Carpenter

Five residential burglaries have been reported in the Mount Washington area this week. Please forward this info to your contacts immediately so that any suspicious activity is reported to us. We need the community’s assistance to find the suspects.
