PALISADES CRIME UPDATE: Arrest Made, Individual Crimes Reported

A person was arrested for camping illegally in a very high fire severity zone.

Senior Lead Officer Brian Espin, with the LAPD Beach Detail and local volunteers from the Pacific Palisades Homeless Task Force discovered a campsite on September 2.

Located above the Rotary Corner, near Pacific Coast Highway and Temescal Canyon Road, the area, which is in a very high fire severity zone, has prominent “no camping” signs posted. During the last week of August, a campsite, which had been found on L.A. City Recreation and Park land, amidst heavy, dried and dead brush, had been found. It was cleaned out by August 31.

Two days later a campsite was once again discovered in the area. The person was arrested, and PPTFH volunteers cleaned out the accumulated garbage.

The LAPD beach detail continues to be a valuable resource for the community, aiding the task force. Members of the task force continue to offer assistance to anyone found camping, including appointments with social workers, but help is often turned down.

There is no camping in very high fire severity zones.
