Community Alert: Hillside Burglaries

James RumaryThese LAPD Community alerts/E-Police newsletters I signed up for are pretty good – except they arrive in my mailbox inconsistently, and not that often. Fortunately, it appears that other people are receiving them – the following was forwarded to me through my neighborhood council, who had this forwarded to them as well:

COMMUNITY ALERT NOTIFICATION: HILLSIDE RESIDENTIAL BURGLARIES

There has been a recent increase of property crimes in the Hollywood Hills.

The E-Policing system could be extraordinary, and from the blogging level especially useful because it can allow neighborhood bloggers to post the info online to a receptive, targeted audience that TV news or newspapers simply can not do. However, the system needs work, as the notices don’t always get sent out properly (in this case, not to everyone who signed up for the neighborhood in question), and often when they are received the info is jumbled and cryptic. The LAPD has a great idea going with E-Policing, they now just need to make it work.

  1. This is so scary! this guy rear ended me in december i have all his information and i looked at the plate and it matches my information.

  2. On December 22nd Me and my girlfriend we’re driving home from west hollywood, when we were rear ended by a silver Kia, we informed her insurance company, and they called his, but they haven’t been able to get a hold of him, so she decides to do a search for him to send him a letter, and finds this article. his car wasn’t able to drive home, so he said he would take it to a gas station and call a tow truck since hsi radiator had a huge hole in it. We got his phone number nad everything, DL number, insurance info and everything, even took pictures
