The Beverly Hills Police Department invites residents to join them for “Coffee with the Cops” 9-10:30 a.m. Wednesday, March 8, at Nespresso for an informative discussion on Neighborhood Watch.
Anyone who is interested in fighting neighborhood crime is encouraged to attend!
Neighborhood Watch is an effective crime-footing tool, said BHPD Sgt. Max Subin. “Residents are the most effective tool in reducing crime throughout the City. Creating a partnership between law enforcement and the community helps reduce neighborhood crime.”
Many law enforcement professionals cite recent legislation designed to reduce inmate population in jails for a spike in burglaries. Beverly Hills has experienced a spike in both residential and commercial burglaries, and the BHPD is hoping to enlist the public in their efforts to fight this trend.
For questions or more information on how you can start a Neighborhood Watch in your area, call Sgt. Subin at 310-285-2112.
