Ladera Joins National Night Out for Crime Prevention

With some of the crimes that have occurred in Ladera Ranch recently, this initiative seems all the more timely and appropriate, even if it is a symbolic gesture.  Other communities can participate as well.

Even symbolic gestures are a good reminder to that we should all be vigilant and speak up if you see something out of place.  Above all else, please care for and look out for your neighbors just as they should do for you.
