HPHOA, est. 1948 board member Joan Medeiros has had another success in improving the look of our public schools. The fence on the 3rd Street side of the 3rd Street School has been covered with ‘permanent’ ivy called ‘Ivy-It’ which is a 100% recycled polyethylene. It has a natural variegated leaf pattern and is used by cities and utilities to provide an attractive cover for areas that are heavily graffitied.

Crime continues to be a problem so remember to 1) Keep your car locked and valuables out of sight; 2) Set your house alarm, if you have one; 3) When out of town have papers stopped, mail picked up, keep a car in the driveway and put timers on lights; 4) If anyone comes to the door have them identify themselves before opening the door. Report crimes or suspicious activity by calling 911 and your security service, if you are a subscriber; the Wilshire Division LAPD station-213-473-0476 or our Senior Lead Officer, Dave Cordova (213-793-0650; firstname.lastname@example.org).. Try and get a description of the person and any identifying vehicle information such as make and model of a car a license plate numbers. Never confront a suspicious person yourself.
