The graffiti clean up on city property in 10 days is a joke. I’ve reported the same graffiti, on the alley itself, 3 times in a 1.5 month period and the city hasnt cleaned it up (unless they have in the last few days because I’ve stopped checking it).

That “victim” in the truck is a drug dealer. I wish him no harm but he is far from innocent. I’ve watched him selling and he offered me drugs directly. Yes I’ve reported some of this but it get tiring with little response and no changes.

And things will never improve if the same people are doing the same things over and over again and there are no meaningful penalties.

Usually I’m just going to QFC and there’s often an SPD officer around.
.
Westwood’s been sorta sketchy since I moved here (1999). One of my friends used to work store security at that Target and was assaulted by a shoplifter back in the 90s. Does seem to be on the upswing again though. I’m glad it’s on the CPC’s radar.

If its been a while they might find some interesting things going on.

As a senior citizen, I appriciate the attention given to Westwood Village. Target and Barnes & Noble are great stores. However, I have noticed unseemly behavior that makes me wary of shopping in that area. I will continue to shop there as long as I know that SPD is watching over the area. Thanks.

Sounds scary, wonder if that would happen to anyone shopping there late. My family is often there after dark, but maybe no longer…
