An Easy Way to Report Tips Anonymously

An Easy Way to Report Tips Anonymously

Often times, when it comes to reporting crimes, people are afraid to do so. There is a fear that by doing so, something bad will happen to them. That is why many law enforcement agencies have worked to create ways for people to contact them anonymously. This way, the agencies can still get the information they need from the general public, and the tipster can help out without fear of getting into trouble.

One way of doing this is through Crime Stoppers. This is organization operates all over the United States and is here in California as well. One branch covers crimes in the Los Angeles region. The organization takes anonymous tips and forwards them to local law enforcement agencies in order to help them solve cases.

Crime Stoppers offers three different ways for a person to supply an ...

How to Avoid Mail Theft

How to Avoid Mail Theft

Mail theft is far more common than people realize. Crooks are regularly breaking into other people’s mail boxes to steal their letters. While it may seem like it is no big deal at first, upon further thought, people begin to realize how bad it can truly be. While many people receive more junk mail than actual mail, everyone occasionally receives some very important things through the mail.

People receive bank and credit card statements, medical documents, and personal information through the mail. If a crook is able to steal some of these things from the mail, they can steal that person’s identity and use it to their advantage while destroying the victim’s financial stability...

Where Do You Get Rid of Your Trash?

Where Do You Get Rid of Your Trash?

Trash is always a bit of a problem, and anyone who has driven on California’s roadways can confirm that. The state’s roads are littered with rubbish that people have simply abandoned there. It happens all of the time, and in many cases, people get away with it. Due to the perceived lack of consequences for dumping trash on the side of the road, many people believe there are no consequences at all. However, that is not the case.

Here in the state of California, it is illegal to dump trash on any property that is not designated as a waste disposal facility. This is illegal under California Penal Code 374.3. Under this law, a person cannot leave their garbage where ever they please, like the side of the road. If caught doing so, a person will face consequences.

First time offenders wil...

What Can Be Done about Squatters in California?

What Can Be Done about Squatters in California?California Trespassing Laws

Here in California, and the rest of the country, a person is not able to walk on privately owned land or building unless they have permission to do so. Entering into someone else’s property without permission is considered trespassing. California Penal Code 602 makes this a misdemeanor activity. This means that trespassing can earn a person one of the following:

  • A fine no larger than $1,000.
  • Up to 6 months in jail.
  • Some combination of fine and jail.

Trespassing is not something that is taken lightly here in California. While one would think dealing with squatters would be plain and simple, that is not the case.

What Is Adverse Possession?

California has what is known as squatter’s rights. This is a term that terrifies and concerns many property owners...

Stopping for School Buses

Stopping for School Buses

School is back in session once again and for students, that means that the fun of summer is over. For many adults, we assume nothing changes for us when the new school year starts, however that isn’t exactly the case. With the start of school comes additional traffic around campuses, and school buses make a reappearance.

Luckily for most drivers, school buses only operate within certain time frames. This means that they are not around for most of the day. However, the times they are in operation tend to coincide with rush hour traffic to and from work. Having to stop for a school bus when late to work, or after an extra tiring day at the office, can be frustrating.

Some people assume that if they see a school bus stopped, but it is on the opposite side of the street, that they can sim...

Keeping Your Kids Safe in Stores

Keeping Your Kids Safe in Stores

It’s a parent’s nightmare, but according to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, approximately 800,000 children are reported missing every year. When broken down, this equates to about 2,000 children being each day. While most of these result in a happy ending, the initial number of children being reported missing is staggering.

Kids Health breaks down the reality of some of these abductions. The majority of children who are reported missing have actually run away from their home on their own accord or there has been a miscommunication with their guardian about where they are supposed to be...

Amber Alerts

Amber Alerts

If you own a cell phone then it’s likely that you’ve heard the buzzer-like noise that blasts from the speakers at any given time of the day. Depending on the time of day or what you are in the middle of, you may or may not be slightly irritated at the unannounced noise. However, this noise, part of the National AMBER Alert Program, could be a signal of life or death for an abducted child.

According to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, the America’s Missing: Broadcast Emergency Response Plan, also known as the AMBER Alert program, is a partnership between law enforcement agencies, broadcast agencies, and transportation agencies to activate an urgent notification for serious child-abduction situations.

The blaring noise that comes over your cell phone is part...

Dealing with Pets and Forced Evacuations

Dealing with Pets and Forced Evacuations

For most of us, our pets are valued family members. We wouldn’t dream of leaving them in a dangerous situation, which means that if circumstances require that you evacuate your home, you want to bring your pet with you.

Before doing so, you need to be aware of some unique challenges evacuating with pets brings about.

Plan Ahead

You love your pets and many of the emergency crews who help with mandatory evacuations are also animal lovers, but these emergency crews only have a limited amount of space, resources, and supplies, and are often put in a position where they simply can’t help pets. They can only work with humans. This is why it’s best to evacuate your family and your pets at the first sign of trouble, rather than waiting to see how bad things are going to get.

When you firs...

Can Police Officers Search Your Electronics?

Can Police Officers Search Your Electronics?

In the modern age, so much of our lives revolve around electronic devices. How many of us would be able to go a day without our cellphone in hand? Probably not many of us. It’s no wonder that since electronic devices like this have become so commonplace that law enforcement officers may need to see them during criminal investigations.

A very common question that most people have is when can a police officer search through my phone or other digital devices? The answer is the same for when can an officer search your home or house: they either need your consent to do so, a warrant that specifically lists the item in question, or when they have reason to believe that the searching of the device will prevent a crime.

This right is protected under the Fourth Amendment of the Constitution...

3 Tips to Increase Your Credit Score

3 Tips to Increase Your Credit Score

It’s a situation no one ever wants to be in, but it’s one that you may face in your lifetime.

Picture this: You’ve just been arrested, you’ve been booked and given a bail amount, and you’ve called someone for assistance. Now, you sit and wait in a holding cell while a loved one contacts a bail agent to help obtain your freedom. However, there’s a problem. The bail agency cannot issue a bond because, after running a credit report, their credit score isn’t high enough.

This is a serious problem because now you’re forced to sit in jail and wait until your court appearance. However, this is an avoidable problem. The answer is simple – keep your credit score up so that you never have to worry about it being too low to be approved...
