Culver City Police Department
4040 Duquesne Ave
Culver City, CA 90232
- Each area of Culver City has a designated CCPD officer assigned to it to best serve the citizens
- Officer Alan Campos is assigned to the Fox Hills area- which is District 5.
- Anything of concern is communicated to Officer Campos related to our area. He is our liaison officer.
- We are all encouraged to report emergencies through 911 and ALL suspected problems and/ or non-emergency situations by calling 310-837-1221. With homelessness increasing in our area, contact police if you suspect that a person is having obvious cognitive problems, (e.g.: confused, partially clothed, etc.) CCPD will assess them for need of further intervention.
- Crime prevention strategies are stressed by the CCPD especially to prevent Opportunistic Crimes. Fox Hills with its high density of vehicles and housing units make us vulnerable to these types of crimes. Strategies include:
- Lock your vehicles
- Keep all visible items in your vehicle trunk. (Laptops, etc. are very tempting if seen on a car seat!)
- While shopping/walking- leave big purses home and opt for small purse/pockets to carry just what you need to shop. Avoid wearing expensive jewelry as well.
- Use dowels for patio doors to maintain a small opening for air but to avoid a larger opening where someone can enter your unit.
- Be aware of your surroundings!!!- Avoid distractions like cell phone conversations.
- Do not open your door to solicitors in the buildings- some are people wanting to “case” your unit.
- Avoid having important documents sent through the mail- use on-line if possible.
- To decrease package thefts: Can request Amazon to deliver during certain timeframes when you will be home. With UPS: can send contact information requesting delivery times.
Officer Alan Campos reached out to the Fox Hills Neighborhood Association and on February 16th, 2017 J. Sherman and D. Wallace of the Fox Hills Neighborhood Association Board met with Officer Campos, Officer Silva and Sergeant Hernandez. We shared information about the FHNA, our recently formed Neighborhood Watch and the Next Door Fox Hills site. Officer Campos plans to attend our Next Neighborhood Watch meeting. Date TBA.
- Senior Assault at Westfield, November, 2016: A suspect has been arrested for that crime.
- Mailbox Thefts on February 8, 2017 at 5875 and 5815 Doverwood and 5800 GVC: A suspect has been taken into custody by the Hawthorne PD for mailbox theft in Hawthorne. The suspect on their security camera matched the suspect on the 5800 GVC security camera.
The Culver City Homelessness Committee is seeking volunteers for the 2017 Homeless Count, which will take place on Wednesday, January 25 beginning at 8 pm. Culver City’s Homeless Count is being conducted in coordination with the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority (LAHSA), which, beginning this year, will conduct the Count annually.
You can also bring canned food and toiletries, as we are collecting for the homeless. These items will be dispensed to St. Joseph Center, Upward Bound House and Society of St. Vincent de Paul; these agencies work with the homeless in Culver City.

Comment from Lt. Sam Agaiby from Culver City Police Department regarding incident,
Westfield Culver City Incident This Past Weekend
On January 7th at approximately 5:30 pm, Culver City PD Officers received reports of a man with a gun in the area of Westfield Mall.
Officers quickly responded to the mall and checked the parking lots, parking structures and all stores within the mall. No evidence of shots fired were located, nor was there any credible information regarding a man with a gun.
At the same time, officers began receiving calls of large group of teens fighting in the parking lot of the mall. The officers responded quickly, addressed the situation with mall security personnel and dispersed the unruly teens from the mall property.
Culver City PD is working closely with Westfield Culver City Management to explore additional security measures. We have also been deploying additional officers in and around the mall during the last several weeks and will continue to do so.
Please call me if you have any questions or concerns 310) 253-6258″

We have been getting questions regarding Fox Hills Plaza and Reimagine Fox Hills and wanted to let you know what we have been told. It is our understanding that Fox Hills Plaza is still in escrow. This is the reply we received from the Culver City Economic Development regarding Reimagine Fox Hills and Fox Hills Plaza:
We’ve had one meeting with the commercial property owners in the area and have another meeting scheduled with them next month. Unfortunately we have been delayed in our efforts due to the holidays. The owners we met with were receptive to creating a plan and we are hopeful that that we can continue to progress the discussion at our next meeting. Once we have completed meeting with the commercial owners, our intent is to pull the residential owners back together to discuss next steps.
My understanding is that preliminary plans have been developed for the Fox Hills Plaza, but no application has been submitted at this point. I don’t believe specific tenants were noted but it is currently proposed as a mixed use project. Once the application is submitted, it will trigger the Planning Commission agenda placement, reviews, hearings, etc. and we will certainly let you know about that timing once it is determined.

39 MORE PARKING SPOTS IN FOX HILLS!!!
Just wanted to inform you that the removal of the Monterey Parking red curbs and parking tees was started yesterday. Traffic painters will continue working on the removals on your street sweeping days, until all the parking-related red curbs and parking tees adjacent to residential development are removed. They are not going to touch driveway or fire hydrant red curbs, as mentioned previously.
We are sooo excited to get more parking in our neighborhood!! Thank you and Mr. Gabe Garcia for all of your support!!
