Over 100 neighbors gathered at the NCJW/LA office for a standing room only town hall meeting to hear about recent crimes in the area as well as continued frustration over the operation and possible expansion of sober living and nursing care facilities into the area.
The meeting began with introductions from LAPD Wilshire Captain Eric Davis, Senior Lead Officer Art Gallegos, Senior Lead Officer Hector Marquez, Sgt. Gonzalez, Detective Vargas, Officer Teddy Williams, and others. Council member Paul Koretz's field deputy John Darnell was also at the meeting and spoke about Koretz' support of a new ordinance regulating some aspects of the operation of the sober living homes.
Below is video clips from the meeting.
Our next meeting will take place in June at the brand new community meeting room at Poinsettia Park Recreation Center. Stay tuned.
