Basic Guidelines: Be Careful & Vigilant
Our speakers today were Officer David Surwilo, Community Relations Officer with the San Diego Police Department for downtown and the surrounding communities and Angie Law, Deputy City Attorney. Believe it or not, Law is her real name.
Officer Surwilo spoke on safety tips for Driving, Shopping, Children, and At Home. The basic guidelines are to be Careful and be Vigilant. His handout is attached and it pretty much covers the subject. He told an amusing story of a call he received from a man reporting his laptop had been stolen out of his car. It turned out that his car had been parked unlocked overnight in his driveway with the laptop in plain sight. When advised to lock his car and keep the laptop out of sight, he indignantly stated that he didn’t have to lock his car when parked in his own driveway.
Angie Law explained how the City Attorney’s office is organized into two divisions, Major Crime and Neighborhood Minor Crimes.
