Post #4: Downtown Long Beach
Since the downtown food and wine tasting event was cancelled due to rain, we decided to attend the LBPD South Division Community Leadership Forum. At the meeting, Sofia and I listened to Commander John Benedetti talk about crime statistics, crime trends, safety tips, and how crime is being addressed in the area. There was also an undercover policeman that spoke about graffiti. We were able to get some pictures and voice recordings at this event for our audio slideshow. Zinaida plans on putting the slideshow together this week. Other that that, we are still looking into an interview with someone from the Long Beach Board of Directors regarding the election of a new member and an angle on the residential trends downtown.
