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.

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

The holidays are in full swing and many are out shopping for last minute items or meeting with family and friends at local restaurants. Unfortunately, while we are enjoying this festive season, opportunists are reaping the benefits of vehicles left unlocked or items being left in plain sight. The Los Alamitos Police Department reminds you this Holiday Season of a few simple tips to help keep you from becoming a victim of theft or burglary. 1. Don't be a target! Do not leave items like mobile phones, laptops or any other small electronics inside your car. 2. Don't transport items with you that you don't need. If you aren't going to the gym, don't leave your gym bag in the back seat of your car. 3. If you must leave items in your car, store them in the trunk so they are not visible. This is especially important while doing holiday shopping where bags can pile up quickly. 4. Lock your doors and glove compartment and arm anti-theft devices such as your car alarm. 5. Try to park in well-lit parking areas so a potential thief can be seen if attempting to get into your car. 6. Never leave keys inside your vehicle, even if they cannot be seen. 7. Once home, remove all valuables from your vehicle. Don't entice a thief to enter your vehicle. We love our community and enjoy time spent with them, but we would rather you spend the Holiday Season enjoying time with family and friends rather than making a police report. #losalpd #losalpdcommunitypolicingispolicing #losalpdeveryhoureveryday
