As you may have heard, recently there has been a rash of burglaries throughout the Valley, 13 of which occurred in Toluca Lake over a short period of time. The LAPD has made arrests of several suspects associated with a burglary ring, and since then, things have settled down.
Message from Senior Lead Officer Barbara Galicia…
“Dear Neighbors, As you may have been aware, there was an increase of burglaries in the past few weeks. Immediately, LAPD placed resources, such as patrol, plain clothes officers and other police resources. During the investigation, there were a few arrests in which property was recovered from Toluca Lake and the North Hollywood area. These arrests were linked to a South Central gang in which firearms were found in their possession. This investigation is ongoing as more arrests are expected. Detectives have contacted the victims whose property they recovered. One of the keys to solving the crimes was video evidence of the suspects. This evidence came from citizens who had camera systems in their homes. I encourage anyone who has the means, to install camera systems or upgrade their current system. It is through hard evidence, like camera footage that we can solve many of the crimes. This proactive measure and citizens working with the police will help us with future crime prevention and enforcement in your neighborhood.”
Toluca Lake has a strong Neighborhood Watch Program. It operates under the direction of the GTLNC Public Safety Committee, however the TLHOA works closely with the program. If you are not currently receiving emails from a Neighborhood Watch Captain for your street, and want to be informed and part of the program, please reply to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will put you in touch with the Watch Captain for your street. The Neighborhood Watch program is stronger when we are all involved!
Toluca Lake Community and Stakeholders:
The Department of City Planning has officially launched a three-year effort to update the Community Plans for the Southeast San Fernando Valley. Toluca Lake sits in two Plan areas:
- North Hollywood-Valley Village
- Sherman Oaks-Studio City-Toluca Lake-Cahuenga Pass
Community plans are the blueprints that guide development in our neighborhoods by establishing the community’s vision for the future, outlining policies to implement that vision, and designating land uses and zoning.
YOUR OPINION MATTERS – Help Shape the Future of Your Community!
You can help develop better plans for Toluca Lake by sharing your opinions with the Department of City Planning at any of the public events listed below (or see flyer for other dates/locations).
The Open House events will be an opportunity for you to tell the Planning Department Staff about the issues and opportunities in the Southeast Valley. What the Department of City Planning learns will help them set a new vision for the Community Plans.
The meetings will be focused on the Community Plan Area where they are located, but please attend any meeting that works for you.
