why wont anyone do anything about the gangs in king arthur. no matter what happens, no matter how many times there arrested, they keep coming back into the roral area and being such a bad cause for people in the general area. it is redicules that they are growing bigger and still selling drugs on the street and the most that the fuckin cops can do is hold them for the night. what bullshit

If they are mexican gang members you can try and contact ICE.They have a program to combat surbuban gangs called Operation Community Shield and they will work with ATF and local police to combat the problem.Sometimes unfortunatly you have some crooked beat cops on the take from these guys which results in nothing serious getting done.The suburban cops are not required to live in the town they work for so they may care a little less what happens in that town.Good luck.
I'm not putting down cops in anyway, the vast majority are great people and deserve a lot of respect, but you do have some bad apples sometimes as in any job.

Look at the way the NLPD is run. Count the cops on the street. Look who is in charge. Look at the background of the ones in the special units, real rocket scientist there. The PD is pathetic. There is your answer.
yes this is my rights

i live in there and everytime i see something going on i pick up that phone and call 911 i really dont care but i also can say that things are getting better in king arthur. i have see families kicked out due to gang members and i am not sad to see them go. better for us i have lived there for about 7 years now i never had a real problem but i say get them out of here and as far as the cops most of the cops are friends with the gang bangers i see them talking to them like they are friends cant be friends with the people messing up the town sorry ..

Northlake Police Department has really been working extra hard to keep the gang & drug activity under control! I've been a resident of Northlake almost all my life. I've seen many changes, good & bad. In any case the Northlake Police department has a terrific grasp on the crime. For a while it was looking as if we may have to consider moving but, thank God Northlake has turned around 90's! I'm very comfortable with the way everything has been resolved. Thank you Northlake PD. We can sleep at night again, knowing our city is being protected. Our kids can actually play outside again. Every town has its corks but, Northlake has taken the Bulls by the horns. It's absolutely a much more peaceful place to live Again!!:-)

@ TAM70
You are in a dream world, I have been living here for 30yrs on Fullerton ave and the cars are driveing 40 to 50mph down the street going threw stop sighns hitting kids on full and roy by the park. Aug. 10th on the 200 block of fullerton a 16yr old got beat by 2 gang members and the list go's on. The police are never around in this area. all the neighbors complaind to the alderman and don't give a shit, the mayor say's he's to busy. I take walks threw the bike path and there's people drinking beer and doing drugs. So don't know what dream you had but it sound nice if it were true...

I've recently returned from the military to Northlake. Ill tell you right now NLPD is above and beyond any of the surrounding ones. While in HS I specifically remember causing some trouble and I also remember a gang sprouting up here and then getting into trouble with the IGs from FP or the Kings from SP and Maywood. Northlake PD completely rained on their parades keeping NL fairly neutral with all the gang stuff. Yes there are gang members here but I can assure you that since I've been home I haven't seen any guys hanging out the way we used too. And as for the comment about speeders....a cop can only be so many places at one time. Speeding is going to happen unfortunately, if it's such an issue and since you seem to have the time to watch people speed start taking plates and help the cops rather than bash them. As for speaking with the gang members...that's what they do it doesn't mean they are friends...I was stopped all the time when a group of us were walking around and say hi and just talk to us in turn they indirectly let us know through casual conversation that they were keeping an eye on us. So again from my own personal experience back when I was in HS in the early 2000's and what I have observed and told by my brother who is currently in HS since returning home NLPD is definately doing their job NL is by far the safest of the surrounding areas.

@Idiots,
Don't know what side of NorthLake you live on. But my friend lives on Fullerton northside of NL and you have to see what go's on at that corner store overthere on FULL and Roy. It's alot nicer in central NL. But overthere it's not good. The kings hang there.
P.S. Thanks for your service.
