LANCASTER – Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department personnel will be going door-to-door in West Lancaster neighborhoods this Saturday, March 14, to conduct a community survey aimed at identifying quality-of-life issues and criminal activity concerns, authorities said.
The “Public Trust Partnership” event is being organized to help bridge the relationship between law enforcement and local residents, according to Lancaster Community Relations deputy Miguel Ruiz.
“The results of the survey will be utilized to allocate and redirect personnel resources to address the problems identified,” Ruiz stated.
The community survey will be conducted by about 100 deputies and volunteers. The group will focus on the neighborhoods between 40th Street West and 52nd Street West, bordered by Avenue L to the north, and Avenue M to the south, according to Ruiz. A command post will be set up at 4105 West Avenue L, he said.
Lancaster Sheriff’s Station is the fourth patrol station to implement LASD’s Public Trust Partnership.
At the conclusion of the survey, Captain Pat Nelson will schedule a town hall meeting to share the tabulated data.
“LASD will develop and implement strategies to address the identified issues, such as, but not limited to burglary and narcotics suppression, gang mitigation, graffiti/vandalism abatement, juvenile delinquency reduction, neighborhood safety after dark, Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) operations, stray animal control, illegal vendor enforcement, loud party, and enhanced traffic enforcement,” Ruiz stated.
