COMMUNITY

Recently there have been several nefarious individuals roaming our South Shores community.   In addition, several break-ins, home invasions, automobile vandalisms and apparent scams targeting the elderly. These are a constant reminder to remain ever vigilant and aware of your surroundings, neighborhood behavior, and to report to the police anything that doesn’t pass the “smell test”.

The homeless encampment in San Pedro, is still on the radar for many individuals, voicing their opinions. Unfortunately, very few ideas or potential solutions have been voiced.  

The planned construction and expansion of the South Shores Magnet School has received fewer protest, but that appears to be the result of a “low profile and soft” exposure to the residents.  Much more to come on this subject, as awareness results in more questions.  Please see the Power Point presentation, now linked on our website below.   

Finally are the latest scams that are targeting the elderly.  We should ALL learn to be Wise, Alert, Educate, and Be Aware. Recently, one of our neighbors was tricked into believing she was the perpetrator of a “hit and run” that never occurred.
