The area is currently experiencing high number of vehicle break-ins and thefts. At least two vehicles were reported to staff as being rummaged through in the early morning. While the LAPD and onsite staff is making every effort to combat this problem, community awareness is the key to prevention.
TIPS FOR PROTECTING YOUR PROPERTY WERE EVER YOU MAY GO
Park your vehicle in a well-lit location, preferably visible to public view. Never leave valuables in plain view. Personal items, including cell phones, GPS devices, laptops or back backpacks/purses should be removed from vehicle (This includes Luma’s parking garage.) If you must leave personal items in your vehicle, place them inside the trunk and/or out of sight prior to parking your vehicle. Please keep an eye out for any activity that appears out of the ordinary and report any suspicions, concerns or security threat to the front desk. A phone call can be very helpful in preventing and decreasing security risks. Your cooperation is appreciated by all who call Luma their home.
ELEVATORS ~ If someone is in the elevator and cannot seem to select a floor, DO NOT scan your fob. Please direct the person to the front desk. This will prevent unauthorized access.
PARKING GATES ~ If a resident approaches the gate and there is a car and/or person waiting, DO NOT open the gate, unless you can confirm the person is a resident. Otherwise, wait a moment to make sure the person has a garage remote. If they remain in front of the gate, contact the front desk to report the person in front of the gate. Residents may go around to the alternate entrance or wait for Luma staff to verify the person at the gate. Please contact the front desk if you notice any suspicious foot traffic or activity around the parking gates.
Please remember that residents should not rely on the Association to protect them from loss or harm. Residents should take every precaution to secure themselves and their personal belongings such as but not limited to, carrying insurance against loss, keeping doors (cars and units) locked, refusing to open any doors to strangers, asking workmen for identification and reporting anyone who is acting in a suspicious manner.
