When people think of moving to any neighborhood, one of the first things they do is go online to get the crime statistics for that area.

I'd say the best way to really know what's happening is to ask a police officer who's actually on the front line everyday and can really break it down for you.

 Officer Sunny Sasajima is our Senior Lead Officer for the Leimert Park area.  He's AWESOME!!!  And more of a community liason if you ask me.  He's always at our block club meetings, highly accessible and so helpful.  Bottom line---he really cares.



             Three cheers for Officer Sasajima!!!

Thanks, Sunny!  We all appreciate you so much!

Hi Heather - 

Is this information still valid, and how do I go about getting more involved in these community gatherings? I just moved into the area at the beginning of July, and have just popping my head into the local business and speaking with the owners. I also plan on being around for this Sunday's Art Festival.
