Olympic Community Police Station – Captain’s Corner Update

As you may know, our neighborhood is served by two  Police Divisions – Olympic Division and Wilshire Division.

The Olympic Division is responsible for the area of our neighborhood enclosed by the following perimeter:

Starting at the corner of Melrose and Gower Street – Melrose Avenue East to Western Avenue.  Western Avenue South to Wilshire Boulevard. Wilshire Boulevard West to Plymouth Boulevard.  Plymouth Boulevard North to Beverly Boulevard.  Beverly Boulevard West to Gower Street. North on Gower Street to Melrose Avenue.

This week, we spent some time with Olympic Division Senior Lead Officer Joseph Pelayo.  Officer Pelayo was really generous with his time – he is passionate about the power that open communication has in reducing crime.  The recent crime statistics released by the Olympic Division for the area of our neighborhood served by the Division are very positive and directly reflective of the work Officer Pelayo has done improving dialogue in our community, under the leadership of  Olympic Area Commanding Officer, Captain Tina Nieto and  Captain Robert Arcos, Olympic Area Patrol Commanding Officer.  Additionally, we all owe a debt of gratitude to Wendy Savage, Windsor Square Association (WSA) Block Captain Coordinator, for her leadership in managing an email chain that has proved to be a powerful tool in keeping neighbors informed.

As they say…knowledge is power.

Division Captain Nieto communicates via video twice a month to all those served by the Olympic Division Police Unit.  Look for these short video updates in the Crime/Traffic section of the Larchmont Buzz website. The messages can be helpful to all as we look for ways to prevent crime.

Captain Nieto’s September 25th address is below.

Lastly, please keep the officers of Olympic Division in your thoughts as two members of their Division were injured this past weekend while on duty. We are truly fortunate to be protected by the brave men and women of the LAPD.

An update/overview of Wilshire Division will be posted soon.
