You will notice a significant number of "Auto/Mutual Aid" incidents.  These incidents predominantly involve Manhattan Beach and Redondo Beach.  All three agencies need each other to deal with routine and extra-ordinary incidents, as none of the three agencies are staffed sufficiently to handle the vast majority of incidents within our respective cities.

You've got questions,
We got answers!



Last night I saw a guy with a flashlight going thru recycling containers in my neighborhood.  I was walking my dogs and was reluctant to call the police.  We stopped putting our trash out the night before trash day for this very reason.  Maybe everyone should stop doing this to prevent the thefts in our neigborhoods?  I don't know if we are  meeting our "quotas" with the trash haulers because of the thefts?




Thanks for the email.  Well...you do need to call the police so that the person going through the trash will not come in to Hermosa.  They will know that the residents call the police.  For example, when HBNW residents started calling the police on solicitors, they stopped coming.  They eventually got it not to do business in Hermosa Beach.  I agree that putting your trash out in the AM on the day of the pickup is ideal.  But, because of residents work schedules and that the trash person comes early (on my street 7:30a.m.), that may not be convenient for them.  I think the best plan for now is to call the police on their non emergency line.

Afterthought:  Also, you want the police to "fill out" a Field Identification Card on the person taking from the trash and/or recycle containers.  If there is a crime that occurs within the area, this person will be the first to be contacted with questions!
