This week, I'm going to highlight the excellent work of my CD12 Rapid Response Team. The team is a proactive effort to quickly remove blight and hazards from our streets before they are allowed to linger and negatively impact our neighborhoods.
The team isn't comprised of traditional Sanitation or Street Services employees who would normally perform the functions of bulky item pickup or weed abatement. Instead, my office hired two LAPD Devonshire cadets, Eric Estrada and Angel Romero, who are supplementing their LAPD cadet duties by providing services to the district.
As we enter the hot summer months, I want to acknowledge these two young men for their service. Because of them, we're able to provide much more efficient and precise customer service that then frees up resources for other city service providers to perform larger, more difficult tasks.
