Public discussion to look into crime by the numbers and by the districts

Fifth District Councilmember Gerrie Schipske and Bill Pearl of will host a public discussion of local crime statistics on Wednesday, March 13 at the Long Beach Water Treatment Plant, 2950 Redondo Ave.
At the discussion, Pearl will present a report he recently compiled about the numbers and types of violent and property crimes committed in each council district in Long Beach.
“This is the first time since 2004 that crime statistics are available for each council district,” Schipske said in an emailed statement. “For the past several years, the mayor and city manager have made cuts to police services. These decisions were made in absence of a real vision of how residents want their community to be in the future. Because crime impacts the ability of Long Beach to attract and keep both businesses who create jobs and residents who pay property taxes, crime in any council district should be of concern to all residents.”
For more information, contact Schipske’s office at (562) 570-6932 or .
