From LASHMIRA.org: Times are especially hard, crime rates are up, and due to major budget cuts in city police departments, security resources aren’t easily available or accessible to communities in need. Los Angeles Shmira Patrol helps to fill the gaps for all communities by promoting and teaching safety.
We are all in this together – and we are glad you are visiting our site. This is our online meeting place, where we organize our activities, share ideas, and publicize our mission. Our members speak a variety of languages to meet the needs of community residents.
Los Angeles Shmira Patrol is teamed up with the Los Angeles Guardian Angels . Together we will focus on High Crime Areas and work on meeting the needs of the communities in various parts of the city. We would like to make clear that LA Shmira Patrol is not the Police nor affiliated with any other Jewish Organizations such as Hatzolah, or Chaverim.
Our members have Police Dispatch and additional Police Department numbers as well as Fire Department, and Hatzolah numbers on Speed Dial in case of any serious emergency. Los Angeles Shmira members are C.E.R.T certified and are here to assist the community in a time of crisis.
