One evening I was outside speaking with my neighbor, who happens to be a
LAPD officer and we noticed a young tall male with a backpack walking
several times around the block... this was around midnight! He
suggested I carry a flashlight and pepper spray when I walk at night, it

captains, private patrol and LAPD to handle it? Any ideas?
Does anyone know how we can get neighborhood watch signs for the LVNA
area or if we can get custom signs made for LVNA and approved to post
around the area? Maybe LVNA patrol or neighborhood watch signs for the
front yards. any ideas?
