The Greater Toluca Lake Neighborhood Council established the Toluca Lake Neighborhood Watch Program through their Public Safety Committee in 2007. Since that time Toluca Lake has assembled approximately 100 “Watch Captains”, reporting on neighborhood activities which have resulted in lower crime figures in the Greater Toluca Lake area.
If you are interested in learning more or participating in this program please contact the Greater Toluca Lake Neighborhood Council
We work in conjunction with the LAPD North Hollywood Division, represented by your Senior Lead Officer Rob Benavidez. Your Neighborhood Prosecutor is Tamar Galatzan.
Your Lead Watch Captains are Janice Eaton, Craig Strong and Steve Hampar. Neighborhood Watch works closely with the Toluca Lake Homeowners Association headed by Peter Hartz. It is a national program and it is effective in that it raises awareness of suspicious activities in our neighborhood. In doing so we are effectively “neighbors looking out for other neighbors”. We work in unison with the LAPD by reporting suspicious behavior With an overburdened police department, it allows neighbors to take an active role in thwarting crime in our neighborhood. However, we do not want to put ourselves in harm’s way…. when necessary, call the LAPD.
