Mar Vista Community Council , LAPD and LAFD News and Events – Coffee with a Cop tomorrow Weds Jan 29, 2020 6PM

Thanks to Michael Scheffe from the South Oval for most of below:

There’s a lot happening in Mar Vista. I’m copying some into this email, but I’d recommend that you simply subscribe to the Mar Vista Community Council “Weekly Roundup” (newsletter). You’ll get updates a lot more directly – and often more timely.


The LAPD Pacific Division Five Points of Contact list for our local police can always be found at here at http://www.southmarvista.org. Our area is covered by Car A49, and our Senior Lead Officer (SLO) is Hector Aceves, Cell: 310-622-3972, email: 35717@LAPD.ONLINE. The list shows you how to reach the police in non-emergency situations.


If the links below are not active, just copy/paste the needed web address into your browser.
