Concerns on tap

A large contingent of officers from the Wilshire Community Police Station interacted with members of the community on March 5 at a Coffee with a Cop event at the Target on La Brea Avenue at Fourth Street.

In attendance were both of the station’s new captains, Cliff Humphris and Julie Rodriguez, along with Larchmont’s new interim Senior Lead Officer (SLO), Joshua Parker. Capt. Humphris commented, “It’s nice to put names and faces together and know each other.”

The officers listened to residents’ concerns, which focused primarily on safety. Humphris admitted that Wilshire Division is not meeting its goal of decreasing violent crimes yet, but it is meeting its goal for reducing property crimes. He is looking at different strategies to improve the situation.

Sam Uretsky, a 25-year resident of Larchmont Village, took the opportunity to compliment SLO Parker: “SLO Parker has singularly been the most responsive officer, outside of commanding officers, I ever have worked with. He’s remarkably easy to deal with. He’s everything you want in an SLO and more.”
