COMMUNITY ALERT!
CONSTRUCTION SITE BURGLARIES
There has been a series of Construction Site Burglaries developing in the West Los Angeles Area. The suspects will target the construction site during the night time hours or on weekends when the contractors and workers are not on site. In cases where the tools and equipment have been secured in a lock box or connex storage container, the suspects have used cutting equipment and blow torches to cut into the secured metal containers. In light of this trend the Los Angeles Police Department is making the following recommendations.
· REMOVE ALL TOOLS AND EQUIPMENT FROM THE JOB SITE AT THE END OF THE WORK DAY. IF THIS IS NOT POSSIBLE THEN CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING OPTIONS:
· ALARMS: Security Alarms should be installed on any structures or containers securing any tools and equipment.
· AFTER HOURS SECURITY: Consider hiring a private security guard to monitor the site after hours and on weekends when there are no contractors or workers present.
· SURVEILLANCE CAMERAS: Web based surveillance camera systems will allow contractors to view and monitor activity from any smartphone or computer which are motion sensor activated and will alert your device when there is activity. They also lend valuable information and clues to the investigation.
· GATES: Ensure that all gates and access points to the construction site are locked and secured with heavy duty pad locks and chains.
· LIGHTING: Add appropriate lighting or motion sensor lighting to the site during the hours of darkness.
· NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH: Most construction burglaries are occurring in residential neighborhoods. Should neighbors of a residential construction site observe suspicious activities, CONTACT THE POLICE IMMEDIATELY! Should the activity escalate to what you believe to be a crime about to occur, crime in progress or crime that just occurred, CALL 911 IMMEDIATELY!
