|Marina del Rey Station Overall Crime Rate DropsRecently the Ladera Heights, Windsor Hills, and View Park areas patrolled by Marina del Rey Station deputies have experienced several residential and vehicle burglaries. The rate of these thefts are down from October and we are intensifying our patrol activities and responses. A majority of the thefts are occurring during the morning and early afternoon hours. We want to remind residents to be vigilant at all hours and contact the station if you see something suspicious.
Please call our business line at (310) 482-6000 for suspicious activity and 911 if you are reporting an emergency or a crime in progress.
All residents should review the below listed suggestions to better secure their homes, vehicles and property.
- Do not keep or store valuable items in your vehicle, or in plain sight. Frequently, cellphones, I-Pads, and lap top computers are left on a car’s seat and can be quickly accessed and stolen.
- Be sure your vehicle is locked and secured even in your driveway or in front of your residence.
- Walk around your home and inspect any area you think a burglar would attempt to access.
- Every external door should have a sturdy dead bolt lock. Especially entrances at the rear of your property.
- Place wooden dowels along the inside of the window tracks to secure windows and sliding doors.
- Give extra keys to neighbors instead of hiding them outside of your home.
- If doors don’t fit tightly in their frames, install weather stripping or additional casing around them.
- Install exterior lights and keep your home well lit at night.
- Consider leaving a television or radio on when you leave for short periods of time, if feasible.
- Consider installing a monitored house alarm system if you travel often.
- Video surveillance systems, available at Costco and other local retailers, are affordable, reliable, and can be monitored remotely on your cellphone. Additionally, our detectives are reviewing videotape recordings from several of your neighbors systems to help us identify the suspects committing these crimes. When an incident takes place in your neighborhood, review your recordings to see if you have captured any related suspicious activity.
- Consider leaving a car in the driveway, rather than parking it in the garage, which gives the appearance that someone is home.
- Limit the view inside of your home, especially if valuables can be seen from open doors and windows. This can be accomplished simply by keeping drapes and blinds closed.
- Report ALL suspicious solicitors or suspicious persons in the area to Marina del Rey Station. Record the license plates of suspicious vehicles in your neighborhood and report them to us.
- Especially with the holidays upon us, have packages and orders delivered to you at work if you can’t arrange to be home on the expected delivery date. Neighbors can also be utilized to accept packages in your absence.
- Create a neighborhood watch on your block. Talk to your neighbors and advise them when you will be absent or when you see suspicious activity occurring in your neighborhood. Share your concerns so everyone can be on the lookout.
