The Westend District has a police sub-station located at 3750 W. McFadden Avenue, #I to better serve the members of this district.  In 2003, community members and police personnel working together remodeled the sub-station for a five-year rededication event and established a Community Resource Center at the sub-station that offers a variety of information and referrals.  More information about the services available at the sub-station can be viewed in English or Español.



Two sessions of the “Santa Ana Parent Academy” (Academia De Padres) were held in 2004.  This innovative crime prevention-based program in only its second year helps educate parents on targeted juvenile delinquency issues.  The district also facilitated its 6th Annual “Jr. Children of Pride” (Jr. COP) Program in one of the most densely populated and economically challenged mobile home parks in the district.  Following a highly successful pilot project, the Santa Ana Read and Create program returned to the Santa Anita Recreation Center.  The 14th Annual Westend District Holiday Celebration and a re-dedication of the Angels Community Park also highlighted 2004.



Under the primary leadership of the Westend Community Policing Team, police personnel in 2004 began to implement the comprehensive strategic plan to address the historical public nuisance crime issue along Harbor Boulevard.  Under the guise of “Operation Clean-up,” a one-month enforcement strategy resulted in 153 arrests for a variety of public nuisance and narcotics violations and other crimes.  During 2004, the team made 839 arrests for a variety of narcotic, weapons violations and other public nuisance offenses, while seizing over $44,000.00 in U.S. currency and over 60 pounds of methamphetamine.
