Clark Field

Robbery

Synopsis: Two unknown male subjects brandish a handgun and take victim's property from their person just after 12 midnight.

 

Details: There were two male victims walking in the 1000 block of Loma Drive. They had just entered Clark Stadium from the walk path off of the 1000 block of Loma Drive. They walked down the path just past a small shed and as they walked by the shed, two males suddenly appeared from behind the shed. One of the suspects had a silver hand gun in his right hand. At this point, the suspect with the gun ran up behind them and ordered both of them onto the ground in a prone position. Once the two victims were on the ground, both suspects began removing property from them. During this time one of the suspects stated, "Don't make eye contact with me and don't look around". Once the suspects took their property, they were seen W/B 10th Street on foot.  It is unknown if they had a vehicle in the area.

 

The first suspect (with hand gun) was described as a heavy set male Hispanic in his low to mid 20's. The suspect was 5'8 approximately 180 pounds, wearing a black hoodie with a white logo on the front and a dark pair of pants.

The 2nd suspect was described as a skinny male Hispanic in his low to mid 20's. The suspect was 5'8 and was wearing black pants with a dark shirt.

 

Items taken: Black back pack, blue back pack, Apple I Phone, Blackberry Phone, and a black wallet.

The goals of the program are accomplished through lecture, hands-on training, demonstrations and a ride-along with a police officer.   Topics include SWAT, K9, Traffic/DUI Enforcement, Investigations, Patrol, Gangs and Narcotics.

Officer Ian Miesen or 310-379-2477 x1-2493.
 

 
Everyone plays a role in creating and maintaining a safe environment.
 
Report Crime - Don't assume that your neighbors have already reported the crime or that the police already know. Report criminal or suspicious activity each and every time it occurs.
 
 
DIRECT HB Dispatch Number 
310-524-2750

 

Reasons for calling the non-emergency number include, but are not limited to the following:
 

  • You want to report a nuisance, such as a noise or parking complaint.
  • To report a non-emergency crime, one that did not just occur, and the
    suspect(s) are not in the immediate area. 
  • You have questions about something suspicious occurring in your
    neighborhood, and you are not sure it is criminal activity.
  • Solicitor just came to your door or are in the neighborhood.
  • Trash diggers.
  • Unusual foot traffic.
  • People you don't recognize walking your block with no seemingly specific direction or purpose.
  • Parked, occupied vehicles at unusual hours.
  • Abandoned vehicles.
  • Business transactions conducted from vehicles.
  • Unfamiliar people peering into parked vehicles.
  • Person removing vehicle accessories.

 
Be alert and observant wherever you are and learn to recognize signs of criminal behavior. Report all crime to the HBPD even if it is only an attempt. Crime cannot be controlled or prevented if it is not reported. By reporting crimes and suspicious activities you can protect yourself and others.

FIRE CHIEF LANTZER'S CORNER

HBFD

 SMOKE DETECTORS

SD

 

Smoke detectors save lives!  Smoke detectors should be installed in your home.  I recommend one in each bedroom, hallway, and other rooms in the home.  If your smoke detector uses batteries (some are hard-wire only), then change your batteries when you change your clock (spring forward and fall back).  Test your smoke detector once a month by pressing and holding the button on the face of the detector.
 

 


FIRE EXTINGUISHERS

SD GAUGE

 


Almost all fires start small (explosions are an exception).  Small fires are best contained and extinguished with the use of fire extinguishers.  I recommend two fire extinguishers for each home.  If you have a multi-story home, then have a fire extinguisher for each floor.  In the case of a major earthquake and after you have secured your family and property, place your fire extinguishers on the sidewalk/curb and make them available with your neighbor's extinguishers to control any fire(s) that may break out on your street.  When you change your clock (and change the batteries in your smoke detectors), check each fire extinguisher to ensure the gauge needle is still in the green.  Also, grab a hold of your fire extinguisher and turn it upside down and back upright in order to keep the dry power inside loose and to prevent compaction.
 
CONSOLIDATION UPDATE


On July 31st, the cities of Hermosa Beach and Redondo Beach issued a press release reporting that both cities have decided to discuss consolidation of their respective fire departments.  On August 4th the Redondo Beach City Council authorized their Fire Chief and City Manager to move forward with formal consolidation discussions with Hermosa Beach.  The Hermosa Beach City Council was to consider the same issue on August 11th, but the item was moved to the September 8th meeting.

  THURSDAY, OCTOBER 8TH
6:30p.m. - 9:00p.m.
CITY COUNCIL CHAMBERS
 

1315 Valley Drive
 
 
 MYN materials, light dinner from Corner Bakery, HBNW bottled water and a MYN bag (see below) provided when you pre-register.

Thank you for
pre-registering!
 
 


"Map Your Neighborhood" (MYN) is a program designed to help neighborhoods prepare for disasters.  It is a program that HBNW has adopted and is mandatory that all Block Captains attend and implement on their street.
 
MYN will help you to:

  • Learn the "9 Steps to Take Immediately Following a Disaster" to secure your home and to protect your neighborhood. It is hard to think clearly following disaster and these steps will help you to quickly and safely take actions that can minimize damage and protect lives. 
  • Identify the Skills and Equipment each neighbor has that would be useful in an effective disaster response. Knowing which neighbors have supplies and skills helps your disaster response be timely, and allows everyone to contribute to the response in a meaningful way.  
  • Create a Neighborhood Map identifying the locations of natural gas for quick response if needed.
  • Create a Contact List that helps identify those with specific needs such as elderly, disabled, or children who may be home alone during certain hours of the day.
  • Work together as a team to evaluate your neighborhood during the first hour following a disaster and take the necessary actions.

IN THE NEWS...

Hawthorne cop's beat is relationships

He warned the group not to fall for a common scheme burglars have been using of knocking on a door to see if anyone is home, and then pulling a van up to an unoccupied house and stealing valuables. Alert neighbors can help thwart such things from happening.

"Take the opportunity away from the thief and he's left with nothing," Williams said. "Have a plan. Keep relationships going. We're going to all work together to solve our problem."

New data: Mega-quake could strike near Seattle

The instruments are detecting an inch or two of movement - known as "episodic tremor and slip" - as the Juan de Fuca plate grinds and sinks beneath the North American plate. Closer to the surface, the two plates are locked together. When they snap, scientists say, it could produce a massive 9.0 or greater earthquake and a tsunami.

 

...The Sumatra-Andaman Islands earthquake the day after Christmas in 2004 was a 9.2 mega-thrust quake that produced a devastating Indian Ocean tsunami that killed an estimated 233,000 people in 11 countries.

The Reach of Mexico's Drug Cartels

Mexican drug trafficking cartels "represent the greatest organized crime threat to the United States," according to a recent Justice Department report. The cartels have waged increasingly violent battles with one another, as well as with the Mexican government, which began an aggressive crackdown in 2006.

Bicycle Theft and Safety Tips

These tips on bicycle theft prevention and safety come from the Manhattan Beach Police Department and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Always lock your bicycle, even if you plan to leave it unattended for just a minute.

Keep your bicycle serial number in a safe place so you can give it to police in the event your bicycle is stolen.

Register your bicycle; this increases the opportunity of getting your bicycle back if recovered. You can register your bike at the National Bike Registry, www.nationalbikeregistry.com. Fees apply.

  • Don't leave your garage door open with your bicycle inside and unsecured.
  • Don't leave your bicycle locked up outside overnight.
  • Report any suspicious person hovering around your bicycle or anyone else's bicycle.
  • Protect your head. Wear a helmet.
  • Assure bicycle readiness. Ensure proper size and function of bicycle.
  • Learn and follow the rules of the road.
  • Be predictable. Act like a driver of a vehicle.
  • Be visible. See and be seen at all times.
  • Drive with care. Share the road.
  • Stay focused. Stay alert.

Code RED

 

A link to the city web page for residents to go to add their phone number to the city telephone notification/information message system, Code Red. The link provides information about the system, how it will be used and allows residents to add their phone number so they will be in the system for city notifications.

 

The CodeRED system gives city officials the ability to deliver pre-recorded emergency telephone notification/information messages.
 
No one should automatically assume his or her phone number is included. All businesses should register, as well as all individuals who have unlisted phone numbers, who have changed their phone number or address within the last year, and who use a cellular phone as their primary home phone. 

 

When you receive a call from CODE RED, the number will be displayed on your caller ID as (999)911-9999.

 

SIGN UP FOR CODE RED

 

ALERT LA County Logo

 

May be used to register your cell phone number, Voice over IP phone number, and e-mail address with the Alert LA County Emergency Mass Notification System.

Listed and unlisted land line telephone numbers are already included in the database and do not need to be registered.

Los Angeles County has implemented an emergency mass notification system that will be used to contact County residents and businesses via recorded phone messages, text messages or e-mail messages in case of emergency.  The system, called Alert LA County, will be used by the County's Emergency Operations Center to notify residents and businesses of emergencies or critical situations and provide information regarding necessary actions, such as evacuations.  The system utilizes the telephone companies' 911 database and is able to contact land-line telephone numbers, whether listed or unlisted.  If the call is picked up by an answering machine, the system will leave a recorded message.  If the number called is busy or does not answer, the system will redial the number in an attempt to deliver the message.  The system is also TTY/TDD compatible.

Because the Alert LA County system uses the 911 database, only land-line numbers are automatically included in the system.  If you have a cellular or Voice over IP number and would like to be notified on that device, or if you would like an e-mail notification, you must register those telephone numbers and/or e-mail address by completing the registration form below.

Because the Alert LA County system uses geomaping, each telephone number and/or e-mail address can only be associated with one street address in the system.

Each telephone number and e-mail address registered below will be contacted only when the street address it is associated with is impacted by a disaster or emergency.
