Mayor Asks for Special Patrols Around Civic Center and Other City Buildings; 3rd Ave – Hampton Drive Residents Want the Same Protection

Mayor Eric Garcetti asks for foot and mounted patrols around the Civic Center and other City buildings after City employees said they felt unsafe.

Homeowners who face 3rd Ave and Hampton Drive have asked for foot patrols. One resident recorded the scene at 3rd and Rose for 24 hours. It was found that there were five fights, three using weapons. That was one 24-hour period. This does not count the verbal threats and abuse that residents encounter day and night. This does not count the filth the residents encounter.

Hampton Drive, north of Rose on the west side, has been doing something about the homeless for years. They hired a security guard to escort employees to their cars or to the building. They wash and sanitize the sidewalks every day and ask the homeless to move all belongings in accordance with the law. The sidewalks are power washed at least once a week. The homeless appreciate the service. It costs the business owners.

This was sent to Update 19 November. It comes from Mayor Eric Garcetti’s Office. The third paragraph seems to be cut off.

    Rodents infestations and trash out of control on 3rd Encampment and Hampton dr encampment even thought 3rd has Care 2 Team, 5 times a week. BID Clean up team everyday. LA Sanitation comes every Friday with their Hazmat suits on. Environmental Watershed Protection with their bleach spray downs every Friday. Street Cleaning Trucks once a week. Public Storage with their power washing twice a week. Rose Cafe power washing. LAHSA with their team, C3 Team with RN from St. Joseph Center. Google Security and Rose Cafe Security, Beer House Parking Security. LA County Health Vector Control Inspectors. LAPD and LAFD always out here multiple times a day. The question remains.. When is our government going to figure out that unregulated camping is putting our community in a medieval environment and all that goes with it? If you can’t control the native rodents and pollution you will not be able to control the diseases that come with them!
