If the report can be accepted, and if the reporting party provides their e-mail address in the designated area, an official copy of the final report will be automatically e-mailed to the reporting party within approximately three business days, at no cost.
 
Reports may be filed online at http://santamonicapd.org/crimereport.

WESTSIDE FOOD BANK’S 22nd ANNUAL 5k HUNGER WALK

Posted By Kathy Zurich-Lunsford, Tuesday, October 16, 2012


Westside Food Bank’s 22nd Annual Hunger Walk

Step Up to the Plate for a Hunger Free Community!

Westside Food Bank invites students, their families, friends, associations and clubs to join us for our 22nd annual Hunger Walk.  This free event is the kickoff to our holiday food drive and helps to raise awareness about the issue of local hunger.  Since nearly half of Westside Food Bank’s food goes to local children in need, we want students to learn more about hunger and nutrition, and enjoy a fun filled day of entertainment, education, raffle prizes, games, snacks and of course, exercise!  Choose from a 3K or 5K walk route along Beach Front Walk.  No streets to cross!  Participation is free and there is no fundraising requirement, although we welcome donations of cash and non-perishable food items.  You can even form your own walking team, carry a banner to promote your group, or wear kooky costumes just for fun.  Consider joining our youth committee to volunteer on the day of the walk.  (Community service hours are available.)     

WHAT:           WESTSIDE FOOD BANK’S 22nd ANNUAL 5k HUNGER WALK

WHEN:           Sunday, October 21, 2012 12:00 -1:15 check in, 1:30 walk begins

WHERE:        Santa Monica Beach Park 1, just south of Ocean Park Blvd. Walk route                                     along Beach Front Walk

                        (2600 Barnard Way, Santa Monica, 90405) 

WHY:             To raise funds to meet the rapidly growing need for food assistance in                                                 our community and to raise awareness about local hunger issues.         

PARKING:    $8 at the City lot adjoining the Beach Park, just south of Ocean Park Blvd.

Bicycle Theft Prevention

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, September 18, 2012
Bicycle Theft Prevention
The use of bicycles for commuting, recreation and other transportation purposes is on the rise nationwide.  The benefits of riding a bike are many – exercise leads to improved health, less traffic congestion, less auto pollution, and more available parking spaces – just a few examples of how riding a bike can have a positive impact on our local environment.  However, the chances of having your bicycle stolen have also increased, making bicycle security a top priority for all riders and owners.
The following tips are offered to assist you in defending your bike from theft:
1.    ALWAYS lock your bike, even if you’re just leaving it for a moment.

2.    Invest in a HIGH QUALITY modern U-lock that uses either a disc or a flat key.

3.    LOCK your bike even when storing it in a garage or patio.

4.    RECORD your bike(s) serial number and keep the information in a secure place.

5.    Take a PHOTO of you and your bike(s) unlocked. In the event your bike is stolen, you can immediately give the police this important piece of information.

6.    ENGRAVE your California Driver’s License or California Identification Number on the bicycle frame with "CA” included.

REMEMBER: if you don’t lock your bike it may literally "ROLL AWAY.”
If your bicycle is stolen, file a police report – call the SMPD non-emergency number at (310) 458-8491.

8th Grade Boys & Girls age 14 and up - Adventure

Posted By Kathy Zurich-Lunsford, Wednesday, June 6, 2012
Attention 8th graders - an exciting opportunity for boys and girls ages 14 and up!

Can you picture you and your friends skiing and snow boarding through a forest glade on a sunny winter day?
Imagine hiking to a 9000 foot mountain peak, then camping in the woods below under a blanket of stars!
You and your friends are invited to a brief meeting to hear more about how you can participate in these challenging high-adventure activities.

Venturing is the teenage, coed program of the Boy Scouts of America. The only criteria is that you are 14 years old or older or have already graduated 8th grade! We teenagers choose, plan, and run all of our activities. We hit the mountains in the winter to try different winter sports and the rest of the year we plan camping and hiking adventures. We plan our own fundraisers to pay for the fun, and we also do service projects to help our community and give back.

If you always wanted to be a Boy Scout but didn’t get motivated earlier, or if you are a Girl Scout and would like to participate in more high adventure activities while finishing your Silver or Gold Awards, this is the crew for you!  Or, if you just love the outdoors and want to have more adventure in your life, come give it a try!

Feel free to bring your friends! If your parents want to come too, they’re welcome.

There are opportunities for summer training experiences for boys and girls, including National Youth Leader Training June 24-29th at a Boy Scout camp in the Palisades, and a leadership retreat in Big Bear later in the summer.

If you have questions before the meeting, feel free to call Ms. Herman at 310-904-3776.


Tuesday, June 12, 2012
7-8:30pm, in the Scout Room at First United Methodist Church
1008 11th Street, Santa Monica, CA 90403

Theatre 31 - Chad Scheppner

Posted By Kathy Zurich-Lunsford, Wednesday, May 30, 2012
If you missed the Lincoln Drama Program’s Production of Pirates of Penzance, you can learn more about it's director, Chad Scheppner, and his children's theatre company, Theatre 31.  This summer, Chad is offering Junior Counselor opportunities for upstanding middle school students in his summer camps.   If your child is interested in the performing arts, and in mentoring elementary students of our Santa Monica school district, this could be a wonderful opportunity!  THEATRE 31 is a non-competitive theatre company, dedicated to providing fun performing arts classes in which each student is given an opportunity to strengthen their awareness, concentration, and communication skills, to enhance their abilities to perform and to collaborate, and to provide each child an opportunity to build self-esteem, courage, confidence, and compassion in their lives and their art.  If you and your child are interested in learning more about these summer opportunities, please contact Chad for more info: chadjasonscheppner@hotmail.com"
