The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Lynwood COPS Team is continuously conducting patrol checks along Long Beach Boulevard for prostitution related activity during school hours. The team conducts a Foot Patrol Operation along Long Beach Boulevard to provide high visibility and contact business owners along the route to learn their concerns.
The Foot Beat patrol resulted in several arrests. Equally significant was the fact that the Sheriff’s personnel were also able to connect with passers-by and business owners who often walk in or operate in fear throughout the day. “Since deputies have been patrolling our block, there has been a huge change,” said one business owner on Long Beach Boulevard. Business owners and residents are seeing Sheriff’s deputies get out of their cars and start patrolling by foot more often.
If you would like to report activity in your area please contact Century Sheriff’s Station at (323) 568-4800. In case of an Emergency please call 9-1-1.
