The Security Committee continues to monitor security in the Park. A large portion of your membership dues are used to fund patrol service provided by ACS Security Industries. ACS Security’s hours of patrol in the Park are 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. As a BPPOA member, you receive this 24/7 security protection free of charge. Please note that separate alarm monitoring services are available from all vendors, at the discretion of each homeowner.
We believe that the partrol continues to act as a great deterent for crime and helps keep our neighborhood safe. As the Westside (Bel Air to the ocean) has only one LAPD patrol car, our own 24/7 ACS Security patrol car is very important.
Our Senior Lead Officer is Maria Gray of the Los Angeles Police Department. Officer Gray can be reached at (310) 444-0744 or via email [email protected]
Patrolling services provided by ACS are free of charge only for current dues paying households. Please note that separate alarm monitoring services are available from all vendors, at the discretion of each homeowner.
Homeowners are reminded, if they have not yet done so, to (1) direct their alarm monitoring company to notify ACS in the event of an alarm and (2) complete and return ACS’s new emergency information and consent form in order for ACS to respond to their alarms.
For the convenience of homeowners, this form is also available at www.brentwoodpark.org http://brentwoodpark.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/Confidential-Emergency-Form-for-BPPOA.pdf. It can be mailed (100 Bel Air Rd, LA, CA 90077), faxed ( 310-441-0064) , or scanned and sent to ACS electronically ([email protected] ).
