See Something, Say Something

 See Something, Say Something

Last week I had the opportunity – maybe more of an honor – to represent the business community and the Chamber’s members at the Cerritos City Council meeting. I was there to ask the Council to carefully consider the outcome of a specific issue: changing the Cerritos Sheriff’s Station from a “full service” station to a “community” station. You don’t have to be a criminologist to know that crime has increased. Most of this increase in crime can be traced back to laws that put criminals back on the street, usually in record time. I know Captain Nunez, who’s in charge of the Cerritos station, and his team of deputies, along with Cerritos Community Safety Director Daryl Evans, do a great job keeping this community safe. In the end, the City Council voted 5-0 to keep the Cerritos Sheriff’s Station as a “full service” facility. But this is a big budget item and will likely be considered during budget hearings when the new council is voted in this April.

Just about every city in L.A. County is facing a crime issue and there is no easy solution. I know Captain Nunez and his deputies are here for us and we need to make sure we are communicating with them. As he says, “see something, say something.” Be vigilant. Be safe.

Who doesn’t love breakfast? Who doesn’t love making new contacts? Well, the Chamber combined both for our “Let’s Do Breakfast” event. Next Wednesday, 2/22, we’ll be at Rosewood’s Family Restaurant for our next “Let’s Do Breakfast” sponsored by the Cerritos Optimist Club. Come on by and enjoy a great breakfast and meet some new Chamber members.

 
Peace,

Scott
