Simple Prevention Tips

 

Residential burglary is a crime of opportunity. Make the thieves work risky and difficult and you stand a good chance of stopping them before they get in. To a burglar visibility means vulnerability. They hide behind fences and shrubbery. The key is to keep trespassers out while keeping your property visible. Use picket fences. Keep hedges clipped down to about waist level.

 

You can prevent vehicle theft! Most cars are taken by amateurs who can be stopped fairly easily. You can increase your protection against this type of crime by following sensible precautions. Lock up, an unlocked car is an open invitation to a car thief. Lock up when you leave your car and take the keys with you. Lock the trunk or tailgate. Close all windows, professional thieves have tools that unlock cars through the smallest openings. Be sure vent or wind-wing windows are shut tight. When you park the car, remove cellular phones, cd players, and other valuable possessions. Do not leave gift-wrapped packages or cameras lying on the seat. Lock all valuables in your trunk or take them with you. Lock your car even if you are making a quick stop at the gas station, convenience store or mini-mall. Park carefully. Do not leave a car in unattended public parking lots for an extended period. A car is five times more likely to be stolen from an unattended lot than from the street or attended lot. If possible, park your car in a lot where you do not have to leave your keys. Never attach a tag with your name and address to your key ring. If the keys are lost or stolen, the tag will lead the thief directly to your car and your home. If you have to leave your keys with a parking attendant, leave only the ignition key. Park in well-lit areas at night with lots of people around. Turn wheels sharply toward the curb when parking, making it extra difficult for thieves to tow your car.

If you see suspicious person(s) or activity in your neighborhood or business, call Cerritos Sheriff’s Station at (562) 860-0044 or 911 immediately. It is a good idea to keep the Sheriff’s Station phone number stored in your cell phone for quick reference.

    Let’s get more deputies on streets, a real neighborhood watch program, and cut cost.

    1.) STOP the museum.
    2.) Sell or lease the Performing Arts Center.
    3.) Get out of the electric business.
    4.) Stop lifetime healthcare payments for retired council members.
    5.) Keep the Substation and renegotiate the sheriff’s contract.
    6.) Get a serious neighborhood watch program going.
    7.) Fix the sidewalks and streets, and trim the trees
    8.) Bring back more community related programs with the Millions in savings.

    What we need:
    30 deputies = Five patrol cars 24/7
    3 motor officers = 2 traffic motorcycles 8 hours 7-days a week
    5 detectives (burglaries, gang, and other investigations)
    65 civilian community service officers to assist with clerical and technical functions
    1 neighborhood watch coordinator
    3 civilian office workers

    Assign a Senior officer to function as the substation watch commander for each shift and merge the brass with the brass at the Lakewood station. We do not need all of the high paid brass at the Cerritos substation when we can easily merge with the Lakewood station and still receive the same professionalism and attention at a lower cost to our budget.

    $3-$5 million yearly savings form the sheriff’s contract
    $6 million yearly saving from Performing Art Center (will generate revenue if sold or leased)
    $3 million yearly savings getting out of the electricity businesses
    $400,000 yearly savings stopping the museum

    Over $12.4 million in annual savings that can put more patrol cars on the streets, grow a solid neighbor watch program, trim trees, fix sidewalks and roads and provide a ton of residential programs for every youth, family, and senior resident.

    One last note: The Performing Arts Center cost the city over $60 million to build and has never turned a profit. As a result of never making a dime, it has cost tax payers $175 million over he past 23 years. Has it been worth it?

    To all past and present council members, kiss your lifetime benefits good by. The People are taking Cerritos back!

    It’s our city and not your personal bank account.
