NoHo L.A.P.D. STATION Opening July 1997

We go WayBack in Time to 1997 when
Richard Riordan was Mayor and Joel
Wachs was our City Council Member.
July 14, 1997 the public and dignitaries
come together to celebrate the North
Hollywood Division's new Station
on Burbank Blvd and Irvine Ave.
It stands on the grounds that were
once our Little League,
Leko-Lankershim Field, that was awhile ago way before
the freeway when there was just a wash behind the Score Board.

I would like to thank the L.A.P.D. and The L.A.F.D.60s for their
concern and compassion when my Mom passed a few years ago.

CraigsList: Free Rent at NoHo 14 for the Right Female!

A recent post on CraigsList makes one heck of an offer for a female looking for housing here locally:

$1 / 890ft² - Free Shared Housing and Board for Female (North Hollywood/NOHO Arts District)

I am a Middle Eastern (Persian) 33 year old single male looking for a female companion to share my one bedroom one bathroom apartment with in exchange for light housekeeping, cooking and running errands. I live in the NOHO 14 building in North Hollywood (NOHO Arts District). This is a very new, beautiful highrise building with lots of great amenities. Google NOHO 14 for description of building. 420 friendly. This is for a friends with benefits situation. Let me know if you are interested.

Trading sex for housing is illegal. CraigsList has been hit with this before.  Apparently they have a self-policing system but it's not foolproof. Many bad things that have come out of his site including trafficking in young girls and real estate fraud.

This is the kind of crap that has really caused the site - which is an otherwise great idea - to lose all credibility.

NoHo Crime Update

Crime update – (Week ending June 25TH, 2011 )

Violent crime in North Hollywood Division has decreased 10.49%
Property crime has decreased 13.58 %
Overall repressible crime for the Division year- to- date has decreased 13.20%

My basic car area covers Oxnard to Magnola and Colfax to Clyborne. I have also seen some decreases in property and violent crime BUT the decrease is not as drastic as the overall numbers of the division. They are good but I’m seeing an increase in crime start to appear. This is especially noticed along the Magnolia Blvd and the Burbank Blvd. corridor.

A few concerns where we see a pattern of crimes involve BIKE THEFTS and DISTRACTION type crimes. Bike thefts have exploded in my area. I don’t know if the warm weather, the high price of gas or more people trying to go green. If you like your bike- secure it. Almost 100 thefts have been reported in the division this year. What stands out is the majority of victims DO NOT have their bike serial number written down. This is essential in getting your property back to you if and when we recover it.

The crimes involving distractions usually victimized the elderly. It involved someone acting as an employee of a City agency (DWP / GAS) knocking on your door and advising the homeowner they need to be escorted to the rear yard to inspect something. While this is going on, another suspect enters the residence and removes the victim’s property. On a few incidents, a child has been involved. An adult knocks on the door advising their child is in need of the restroom or a glass of water. As the homeowner is distracted, another suspect enters and searchers the property.

Be aware of any suspicious activity. Use your cell phones to take photos if it can be done safely. Forward me any information you think may assist us in deterring or solving crime.

Nation Night Out is August 2nd at the North Hollywood Park. This is a yearly nationwide event that brings the police and the community together. The event will include entertainment, food and tables sponsored by some local area business and City organizations. The event starts at 6pm. Hope to see you there.

Please let me know if you have any questions, comments or concerns.
