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.

This weekend's storm is expected to bring a lot of rain and wind. Prepare your home and give yourself plenty of time to travel to your destinations. Tips for driving in the rain: 1. Watch for poor visibility and hydroplaning. 2. Take your time. Slowing down is the only way to keep your vehicle from hydroplaning. 3. Turn your lights on. Turn your headlights on to help other vehicles see you. 4. Give other vehicles more space. Add 1-2 extra seconds of following time in the rain, which gives you and the cars behind you more time to react to traffic.

Officer Natalie Corona Davis Police Department Oath of Office: August 2, 2018 EOW: January 10, 2019 Officer Natalie Corona was gunned down while investigating a 3 car collision at about 7:00 PM. She succumbed to her wounds at the UC Davis Medical Center. The suspect fled the scene and a search by officers from the Davis Police Department and surrounding agencies led to a house and a barricaded subject. Eventually it was discovered the suspect was dead inside from what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound. By news accounts, Natalie had worked with great dedication at the Davis Police Department prior to attending the Police Academy last year. Natalie earned her chance to become a sworn peace officer, following in the footsteps of her father who is a retired deputy from the Colusa County Sheriff's Department. Only weeks prior to death, she completed her field training and was certified to work on her own. Davis is a quiet town within a larger metropolitan area. This event illustrates that nothing is routine in performing the work of a peace officer - anywhere - and challenges and threats can arise at anytime. These require preparation and training, but more importantly the character and passion to serve in order to successfully manage these events while providing public safety services. Officer Corona reflected these skills according to her co-workers. The women and men of the Los Alamitos Police Department mourn the loss of Officer Natalie Corona in her nascent career. Please join us in keeping Natalie's family, friends, and co-workers in your thoughts. #thinblueline #losalpd #LODD #ODMP #davispolicedepartment

Be Wise, Don't Advertise A post-Christmas crime prevention tip! Break down the boxes from recent purchases that are going into recycling and trash containers so thieves don't have a "shopping list" - now or in the near future. #losalpd #losalpdeveryhoureveryday #losalpdcommunitypolicing
