City Progresses to Hold Multi-unit Property Owners Accountable for Resident, Neighborhood Safety

September 17, 2018 

(September 14, 2018) -- The City of San Bernardino is continuing work to ensure property owners of multi-unit complexes create a safe and crime-free environment for residents and surrounding neighborhoods.

This week, the City is taking steps to prioritize enforcement at those multi-family properties that generate the highest number of calls for law enforcement service and which have the most code violations. The high priority enforcement properties are generally located in two areas that include Golden Ave. to the east, Del Rosa Ave. to the west, Lynwood to the north, and Date Street to the south; and north of 40th Street. The complexes in this area have collectively amassed 1,924 calls for police service in the past year alone. Also of concern is the more than 888 code enforcement cases processed in the last nine years, each one of those cases involving multiple units. Crimes at these complexes include gang and drug activity, as well as a number of other issues associated with violent crime.

Investigation Continues, Safety Paramount at Lynwood and All City Complexes

September 7, 2018 

(September 7, 2018) -- The City of San Bernardino continues to make progress in the investigation of the eight-person shooting at 1277 East Lynwood Drive on September 2. Major steps are underway to ensure the property owner, PAMA Management, will create a safe and crime-free environment for those that live in the complex and the surrounding neighborhood.

The investigation continues with the San Bernardino Police Department (SBPD) now receiving and actively pursuing tips through the anonymous TIP Line at 909-953-4673. In addition, an SBPD Officer is assigned to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) task force so we now have access to resources to help with the investigation. This allows SBPD access to high-tech evidence tools like the Integrated Ballistic Identification System (IBIS), which expeditiously helps investigators solve crimes faster by analyzing bullet casings and bullet striations. An investigation like the Lynwood event, with an abundance of physical evidence and lack of witness information, takes time.
