One Response to “New Crime Report: August 16 – August 25”

  1. I’ve lived in La Verne for over a year…about 6 months after I moved to the city my car was burglarized. This seems to be a common problem in this area. What is being done about it? What can be done about it? Does the city of La Verne have surveillance cameras sporadically placed throughout the city? Obviously someone feels right at home as they cruise the block hitting multiple cars as they go through the neighborhood or apartment complex. How can the community get involved to stop these lowlifes?
