Venice Safe Team Takes Action Against Disruptive Individual on Boardwalk

From Santa Monica Close Up:

"On Friday, January 9, 2024, members of the Venice Safe Team took action on the Venice Beach Boardwalk, escorting an individual towards Santa Monica after weeks of reported disturbances. The intervention followed a series of complaints regarding the man's disruptive actions along the popular beachfront area, including harassment of boardwalk visitors.

The Venice Safe Team, committed to ensuring a peaceful and secure environment, tracked the individual as he traversed the boundary from Venice into Santa Monica. This response is part of the team's broader effort to maintain order and safety on Venice Beach, a destination known for its vibrant atmosphere and diverse community.

Operating daily from 6:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. during the winter months, the Venice Safe Team plays a crucial role in the community. Their responsibilities include conducting routine patrols, engaging with the public, managing risks, and responding to a variety of safety concerns and non-emergency situations. Working in collaboration with local law enforcement and emergency services, the team addresses issues such as trespassing, vandalism, public intoxication, aggressive behavior, and compliance with city regulations, all aimed at safeguarding the interests of both visitors and residents of Venice Beach."
