I hear police sirens and police helicopters almost every night. It wasn't like this when I grew up in HH back in the 90's.

I hope this trend doesn't continue.

I don't know what's happening to this community. With such rich history, it's saddens me. My understanding is gangs from La Puente are migrating to HH. Last week there was a shooting betweeen rival gangs on Gale Avenue and Riderwood. Fighting for territory. I've lived in HH for 18 years. This last year has been really bad.

Yeah I moved here from E.L.A. and I love that this community was very clean and at most crime free. I have seen increase in gang activity. Please let's rid ourselves of these lowlifes who are nothing but bad news. Go do your gangbanging in L.A. where u pretty much have control of the place. We need to constantly call sheriff's dept. TO rid ourselves of these criminals...

We should all ban together on this. I live near a park and there are tons of kids hanging out there at night in the parking lots. We need to let these kids know they are not welcome!!! Call the police and keep them at bay.

I have told some of the kids I see that the cops are on there way and they quickly flee. I dont want them in my neighborhood!

within the parameters of your area. This activity is migrating towards South of HH - be careful - you will not be exempt from this activity.

It has already spread. There's a lock down at Newton Middle School due to police officers in search of two robbery suspects.

I agree with all you guys i live in a good side but just as i drive south of hacienda blvd. i see a big difference near newton ave. 2 of my kids attend one of the schools that was on lockdown today and it was pretty scary. i'm sure this was a great neighborhood before but along with the home robberies and what happened today i dont feel safe and i've been here less than 2years

CAUTION: if you see kids go door to door selling stuff iike LA times, verizon, be aware that those kids are bsing. they go door to door to see if houses are empty, if they are, they rob it. if not they just pretend that theyre selling this and that.
last sunday these los altos highschool kids came to 'sell' magazines.. and just yeterday my house got broken into and robbed. im not the only one, i know at least 6 people who got burgled this year. my friend also got a doorsaleskid and ALSO got robbed... watch out

I recently traveled through the LA area and stopped to shop and drive around in HH. I was impressed by the clean neighborhoods and nicely-maintained homes. I spoke with Anglo, Latino, and Asian folks in the stores, who were all very courteous & friendly. YOU FOLKS NEED TO PRESERVE THIS! You need a massive community organization to stop the gang-bangers. Maybe you need to re-think incorporation and to then pass city ordinances that DRASTICALLY increase the penalties for any gang-bang activity, especially graffiti/tagging. If law enforcement cannot do the job, you will have to form community patrols.
DON'T LOSE WHAT MANY OF YOU HAVE SPENT YOUR LIVES TO BUILD UP. Organize now!

Hacienda Heights has definitly turned into a place that where i would not want my kids to go. Los Altos had three extensive lockdowns that were the real thing, in a mere 6 months. There could only be more to come. There has been countless armed robberies through out the town and countless other break ins when the residants arent home. I know many families that live up turnbull that have been robbed one family , twice.

I will not state exactly where I live for obvious reasons but I reside on a main road that's been getting tagged over the past 8 mo's or so. I have set up cameras that watch over my home,yard and also the walls that are being tagged. The next time they tag they will be on tape and it will be handed to the sheriff's dept. We are not tolerating gangs in HH. This city is clean, organized, rich and it will stay that way if I gotta pull a grand torino on them! Crime has gone up across the board, not just in HH. It's the economy. I stay in very close contact with the Sheriff's dept and notify them every single time there's anything suspicious. Us youngens will protect & preserve our city alongside of the Sheriff's Dept. It's a community effort and everyone needs to get involved! I keep a camera on me at all times and I wont hesitate to photograph a tagger.

Also, if you're seeing helicopters, cops, sheriffs, etc.. it means that people are reporting stuff, it doesn't necessarily mean the crime is going up, it's just that they're getting caught now! ;)

A white male approx 5'8" thin with blue eyes and medium length hair came to my door today claiming that one of the homes in our track was being foreclosed on, and asked if I had any information on the condo association. He said that they needed it for the process of foreclosure and that the bank didn't have that info. I thought of this topic b/c of the "door to door" claims. He was carrying a clip board, I asked him for a card but he didn't have one so I asked for the company that he works for and the person to contact to give the info to.
Maybe legit, maybe not, figured I'd post it here in case this has happened to anyone else.
