    What is the procedure to have a weekly crime summary for other cities such as commerce ca, or is this just for Cerritos CA.

    • The Cerritos Sheriff’s station does their own. You would have to ask the Commerce Sheriff’s to do their own too, although we have found it very difficult to get substations to do that.
