The Neighborhood Watch Program is coordinated between the Lomita Sheriff Station and the City of Lomita Public Safety and Traffic Commission. The program is designed to assist in making the neighborhoods of Lomita a safer place to live. The success of the program is dependent on the cooperation of the residents involved.
The Neighborhood Watch is a crime prevention program which enlists the active participation of residents in cooperation with local police to prevent and reduce crime in our neighborhoods.
The Neighborhood Watch Program:
- Teaches citizens techniques to reduce the risk of being victimized at home and in public;
- Trains citizens to recognize and report suspicious activities;
- Teaches participants how to make their homes more secure and how to property identify their property;
- Allows neighbors to get to know each other and their routines so that unusual activity can be reported and investigated;
- Brings citizens together to address the needs and issues that concern the entire community.
To institute this program in your neighborhood, you are first invited to attend one of our Public Safety and Traffic Commission meetings, where you will have the opportunity to speak before the Commission and meet the representative from the Lomita Sheriff’s Department. Meetings are held on the third Wednesdays of each month at 6:00PM in the City Hall Lomita Council Chambers. At that time, you can schedule a time and location for you and your neighbors to meet with one of the Commissioners and a Deputy Sheriff. There should be at least six (6) neighbors recruited to make this an effective program.
For additional information or questions, please call the City Hall at 310-325-7110 ext. 141.
