I cannot stress enough the importance of you locking your vehicles and removing ALL valuables from inside your car or truck. The following is a flyer prepared by the Long Beach Police Department on How to Prevent Auto Burglaries

Please also note that these crimes are taking placing during the day. If you see or hear anything suspicious, call 911 immediately.

Finally, the men and women of the Long Beach Police Department are working as hard as they can to make Long Beach a safe city in which to live and to work. But they need more officers on the street. (Long Beach is down to 880 officers in a City of 450,000 residents.)

I urge you to contact the Mayor and other members of the City Council and let them know you want more police patrols in the 5th Council District. Residential crimes are up 23.3% on the east side. Enough is enough.

Thanks for taking time to read this email  and to become involved.

Sincerely,
Gerrie 
Councilwoman Gerrie Schipske
