Residents encouraged to remain vigilant
There are a variety of crimes that affect our neighborhoods every day. Residents are reminded to be on the lookout for these smaller, but threatening crimes impacting our community and quality of life:
 Scavenging
Scavenging or removing items from trash cans or recycling containers is strictly prohibited in La Mirada. In some cases, scavenging is the preferred method used by criminals to engage in identity theft. Violators are subject to strict fines, penalties, and possibly jail time. To report scavenging, call the La Mirada Community Sheriff’s Station at (562) 902-2960.
 
Solicitors
It is unlawful for any person to engage in commercial solicitation activities in La Mirada without a permit. Each solicitor shall have the City’s permit identification card in possession at all times, and shall present the information upon request.
To safeguard your home and your family from unlicensed solicitors, follow these tips:
  • Ask deliverymen, solicitors and strangers for their credentials, the company they are representing, a contact number, and the reason for their visit.
  • If you don’t feel comfortable answering the door, don’t.
  • Make your presence in the house known to visitors to deter potential burglars targeting empty homes.
  • Be cautious at all times. Keep the door locked.

If you come in contact with a solicitor, contact the La Mirada Community Sheriff’s Station at (562) 902-2960 to report any suspicious activity.
