On June 23, the East Newhall Neighborhood Committee met to address neighborhood concerns and had the opportunity to meet the new Sheriff’s Captain Paul Becker. The Captain spoke about his extensive law enforcement career and his commitment to protecting the community.
Committee members shared their concerns about crime, gangs, and drug use in the community. A committee member also provided a tip to law enforcement which resulted in an arrest later that evening. This is the second such tip provided by a committee member that has led to an arrest of a gang member in the neighborhood.
