LAPD Pacific Directory

Hello everyone.  I wanted to give a special Shout Out to Alex Thompson for letting me post from time to time on Venice 311.

My name is Tony Newsom and I am a Los Angeles Police Officer in Pacific Area.

Tonight, I just wanted to send you an e-version of our social media networks.

It’s getting kind of late and I’ve been up since 5 this morning so “good night” for now.   Oh yeah, stay safe!

Trespass Arrest Authorization Letter

One way to ensure your property is protected is to post “NO TRESPASSING” signs in appropriate areas. Many property owners in Venice have learned that when someone parks and blocks their own garage door, if they do not have a proper sign stating that it is private parking with the name of the tow company… the vehicle can not be towed.

It is a good practice to make sure you have “NO TRESPASSING” signs posted on your property. Equally important, you should fill out a Trespass Arrest Authorization Letter and submit it to LAPD. You can download a letter and fill it out by clicking on this link. If anyone is to trespass on your property this will assist LAPD in filing the proper charges and making an arrest.


Poison Prevention Week

During Poison Prevention Week, the Los Angeles Fire Department wants you to be aware of ten simple tips that can reduce the risk of poisoning in your home.


But first, put the Poison Control Hotline number (1-800-222-1222) on every phone to help save lives.

While household products such as cleaners and chemicals naturally come to mind as being hazardous, the LAFD suggests that any product bearing the words ‘Caution‘, ‘Warning‘ or ‘Danger‘ be stored out of children’s reach, ideally in a locked cabinet or compartment.

It’s also a good idea to survey your home, especially the kitchen, bathrooom, workshop and garage from a child’s – or grandchild’s point of view, so that you can know what items might be accessible or spark their curiosity.

Ten Important Poison Prevention Tips…

  1. Know the things in and around your home that can poison you.
  2. Put child safety locks on cabinets to safely store cleaners, medicines, cosmetics, chemicals and other poisons.
  3. Keep products in their original packaging with the labels on them.
  4. Look at labels for the words “Caution“, “Warning“, “Danger” or “Poison“. Follow all directions carefully when using these products.
  5. Be aware that fuels (such as gasoline), car fluids (such as anti-freeze), pesticides (such as bug killers), and lawn and garden products (such as fertilizer) are poison.
  6. Do not mix household products together. Their contents could react with dangerous results.
  7. Install a carbon monoxide (CO) detector near your bedrooms and furnace to warn you of high levels of CO, a deadly gas you cannot see or smell. The gas collects when fuels are burned. Collected CO gas can quickly harm or kill you.
  8. Have a certified service technician check heaters, stoves and fireplaces at least once each year to see that they work well.
  9. Program the Poison Control Hotline number in every phone and place it near phones and on the refrigerator: 1-800-222-1222.
  10. Know to call 1-800-222-1222 if someone takes poison. This number works around-the-clock anywhere in the USA to connect you with a nearby poison control center. Call the hotline whenever you have a question about poisons. It’s free, private, and can save you a trip to the emergency room!
