Dear South Shores neighbors,

As most of you are aware, our Senior Lead Officer Eve Wight has been reassigned to the LAPD Metro division and has had to bid South Shores farewell, at least for now.  We all wish her well and she will be greatly missed by our community.

We were very pleased to have the new acting Senior Lead Officer Elliot Rubright drop by the house last week to introduce himself.  It was a very informative visit.  It gave us the opportunity to get to know him a bit  and to chat about South Shores specific needs and priorities.

Prior to LAPD, Officer Rubright was in the Marine Corps for 6 years and served two tours of duty in Iraq.  He has been with the LAPD for 10 years, the last 9 at the Harbor Division.  He is married with one daughter.  He is currently working on his Master’s degree in Public Administration. In his off time, he likes to go the beach, hike, camp and fish.

Elliot says, “I am hoping to build a strong relationship with members of the community and getting to know them on a first name basis”.

Both CyberWatch and the South Shores Homeowners Association are  looking forward to building an effective working partnership with Officer Rubright in the very near future.  He will continue in the same CyberWatch communications loop as Eve, his predecessor.

Please join me in welcoming Elliot to our South Shores community.

Bob Genest, CyberWatch Captain
