SHOPPING ALERT From the 61st Police Precinct

Shopping Alert


While overall crime is down throughout the city, it’s always a good idea to be aware of your surroundings. Leaving your valuables unattended in a shopping cart is never a good idea.   

Next time you are using a shopping cart, remember the following safety tips:

  • Be aware of your surrounding at all times.
  • Report anyone who appears to be acting suspiciously.
  • Never leave your purse unattended in a shopping cart.
  • When possible shop without a purse.  Use your pockets to hold cash, debit/credit cards, driver’s license, keys, etc.
  • If you must shop with a purse, consider securing it using cart’s child safety straps.
  • You may also want to carry your own clamp in your purse, such as a Carabineer, to hook it directly to the shopping cart. It only takes a second to secure and is worth the effort.

Anti-Semitism Has No Place In Manhattan Beach

To the Manhattan Beach Community, 

It is with great sadness and disgust that I send this message to you.  

Early Sunday morning, on Exeter Street, several homes and properties were spray painted with anti-semetic hateful messages along with swastikas. 

We have been in contact with Councilman Deutsch and the police department.  

There is zero tolerance for this type of behavior in any community, anywhere! 

The events took place after midnight.  We urge you to do several things: 
            1.  be vigilant—if you see something—say something—call 911 even if you think the action you see might be innocent. 

            2.  if you have a surveillance camera on your property—make sure it is operative. 

            3.  if you happen to have footage on your camera that might look suspicious, please call 911 and ask for the Hate Crimes Task Force. 

We learned about this situation from a member of the community and our Police Liaison took immediate steps to speak with the 61st Precinct, we also spoke directly with Councilman Deutsch who has already taken an active involvement in what has happened. 

There should be no doubt in anyone’s mind that the Manhattan Beach Community Group will be actively involved in helping to pursue the people involved in this hateful crime.
