The LAW has come to Town… Los Al Watch!

The Police Department is proud to announce it is expanding and updating The LAW-Los Al Watch. Recognizing changes in technology since the program was started in 2003; the updated version will utilize a new range of social media in hopes of disseminating information to a technologically evolving population. Using Web applications to post timely information on Twitter, Facebook, our Department website, and distributing electronic mail, information can be posted more expediently with fewer staff resources to reach and inform a broader segment of its community.

The LAW is intended to enhance communication with the community, with a goal of strengthening police – community partnerships by creating a time efficient method for receipt of  information. Participants can expect to receive “Tweets,” posts, or emails focused on crime and fraud prevention, police activity, and current community topics, as well as providing a notification process for upcoming local meetings and special events. The Los Alamitos Police Department invites everyone who lives, works, or is involved with schools in Los Alamitos to sign-up for The LAW-Los Al Watch.

The LAW-Los Al Watch is not the same as or a replacement for, Alert OC, the emergency mass notification system utilized by the City of Los Alamitos. Please see their website for more information and be sure to sign-up there, as well.

The prior version of The LAW utilized a listserv to email information to its subscribers. It provided a mechanism for individuals to sign up for a specific neighborhood or interest group such as businesses or schools. Although the new version of the LAW will not have the same specificity, it is anticipated that this means of communication will reach a larger audience by using popular social media applications. The trade-off that exists, however, allows us to utilize updated opt-in/confirmation technology to combat spam and offers individuals and families a variety of options for receiving Department information.

Today’s families are on the go and time is precious. It is the Police Department’s hope that important information can be disseminated to the members of our community regularly so that it can be read and acted upon – on your schedule. This method is not designed to replace neighborhood meetings, if they are desired by the residents, but is meant to enhance the communication and partnership between residents and their Police Department.

As National Police Week comes to a conclusion, please take a moment to remember those officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice in the protection of their community. In 2017, 135 officers were killed in the line of duty. They were both men and women, they were both new and veteran officers, they came from large jurisdictions and small jurisdictions, but they all were dedicated to serving and protecting their communities. To date in 2018, 55 officers have been killed. Please keep your officers in your thoughts as they patrol your neighborhoods and attempt to connect the voices of victims to the justice system. In Los Alamitos, the officers knowledge of the community, their dedication to service, and their vigilance "Every Hour, Every Day" plays a key part in keeping Los Alamitos a great place to live, work, and visit. On May 31st at 7:00 PM, the Orange County Peace Officers Memorial and Candlelight Vigil will be held at the Regional Training Center in Tustin. This will be a tribute to all the officers who serve the County of Orange, and a remembrance of those who made the ultimate sacrifice "In the Line of Duty." #nationalpoliceweek #losalpd #everyhoureveryday #odmp #nlemf

In 1962, President John F. Kennedy signed a proclamation which designated May 15 as Peace Officers Memorial Day and the week in which that date falls as Police Week. Currently, tens of thousands of law enforcement officers from around the world converge on Washington, DC to participate in a number of planned events which honor those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice. The Memorial Service began in 1982 as a gathering in Senate Park of approximately 120 survivors and supporters of law enforcement. Decades later, the event, more commonly known as National Police Week, has grown to a series of events which attracts thousands of survivors and law enforcement officers to our Nation's Capital each year. #nationalpoliceweek #losalpd #everyhoureveryday

City of Los Alamitos Part 1 Crimes down almost 10% from 2016 to 2017 Crime statistics should be evaluated carefully particularly in small cities such as ours. With smaller samples, the numeric change can have an over-sized impact on percentages. With that said, we are providing a longer period view here, and while it is positive to see the drop in the year over year number of crimes reported, this chart also illustrates that over time Los Alamitos has become a safer city in which to live, work, visit, and go to school. Many factors play a role in safety, but our partnership with the community truly fuels our passion to help make Los Alamitos a great place to be. Our community members take the time to call and discuss matters that impact their quality of life, as well as report matters of potential criminal activity. The men and women of the Los Alamitos Police Department have been effectively working together, and with our community stakeholders, to address crime concerns "Every Hour, Every Day." Even in light of California legislation such as AB109, and Propositions 47 and 57 which have left other area jurisdictions with higher rates of crime, the work done by our community members and our police officers have had positive results. We will be periodically highlighting events where that partnership and that hard work has led to successfully supporting greater community safety. #losalpd #everyhoureveryday #losalpdpartnership #communitypolicing
