Public Safety

In an effort to make Studio City a safer community, the Studio City Residents Association has developed the Partners Against Crime program, a community partnership between residents and the Los Angeles Police Department. The success of the program relies on active participation by both residents and the LAPD and requires all involved to openly communicate concerns and generate ideas on how to solve crime issues in our neighborhoods.


Partnering with the LAPD

Our Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) Senior Lead Officer for Studio City,  Officer Shawn Smith, reports recent Studio City crimes at each SCRA Community Meeting, attends Neighborhood Watch meetings throughout the area, and provides valuable information to help residents safeguard themselves from crime. Senior Lead Officer Kurtis Delbar, who covers the easternmost part of Studio City, also attends Neighborhood Watch meetings throughout the area and provides valuable information to help residents safeguard themselves from crime. Residents can contact either Senior Lead Officer with concerns or to request their presence at a Neighborhood Watch meeting.

Neighborhood Watch

Neighborhood Watch programs are the most effective means of keeping crime out of neighborhoods. It relies on the best crime fighting tool ever invented, the good neighbor. Neighbors working together with the LAPD are a formidable crime fighting team.

If you are interested in starting a Neighborhood Watch in your area, contact your LAPD Senior Lead Officer for Studio City, visit the LAPD Neighborhood Watch website for more information or complete and return the form Neighborhood Watch – Please Contact Me.
