Uptick in Crime From Last Year: Latest Crime Report

On March 9, Pacific Palisades Senior Lead Officer Michael Moore released the latest crimes for this area, which include a DUI, burglary, burglary theft from a vehicle and a theft.

At the Pacific Palisades Community Council meeting on February 27, Moore announced that crime was up slightly this year from last year. There were three more robberies, five more burglaries and seven more car thefts than last year.

He said that residents had made an effort to keep valuables out of cars and keep them locked. Moore noted that many of the crimes reported were those from out of the area who were hiking (Temescal Gateway Park and Los Leones) or at the beach (Temescal and PCH, Sunset and PCH) in Pacific Palisades.

He was asked if there were signs that could be posted that would alert visitors to the danger. “LAPD had signs made,” Moore said. “We’re waiting on approval.

“Vehicle break-ins are so preventable,” he said, and reminded people, “Hide it. Lock it. Keep it.”

A reminder that West LAPD Division Captain Jonathan Tom will be at the Community Council meeting at 6 p.m. on Thursday, March 12, held in the Pacific Palisades Library community room. To read more about Tom, visit:
