The development of the program began over a year ago, following numerous resident complaints about the increasing number of traffic collisions because of speeding and racing cars. Adams indicated that one driver was cited on West Glenoaks Boulevard for traveling 103 mph. Given the number of areas of concern within the city of Glendale and the limited amount of resources, the Glendale Police Department Air Support Unit was identified as a way to address the issue.

Jackson Bell Despite strong voter support for a ballot measure to loosen the state's tough "three strikes" law, Atty. Gen. Bill Lockyer told local crime fighters and civic leaders this week that it could leave communities more vulnerable to violent criminals. Voters are being swayed by deceptive anecdotes they hear about people receiving life sentences for shoplifting because it's their third strike when upwards of 30,000 felons -- some who committed violent crimes -- could be released if the law is changed, Lockyer said.

Jackson Bell While many local top cops push for a measure to increase funds for law-enforcement agencies in Los Angeles County, some argue that the proposed sales-tax increase is misguided and blame local politicians for raiding funds already set aside for that purpose. Measure A, which needs a two-thirds majority in the Nov. 2 election, could generate an additional $560 million yearly for law enforcement by raising sales taxes a half-cent to 8.75%.

BURBANK ? Violent crime in Glendale rose from 2004 to 2005, following a nationwide increase in murder, robberies and aggravated assaults, but numbers in Burbank told a different story, according to FBI data released on Monday. In Glendale, there were 19 murders in 2005 compared to five in 2004, according to the bureau's Preliminary Annual Uniform Crime Report for 2005. A majority of the increase can be attributed to the Jan. 26 Metrolink train derailment when Juan Manuel Alvarez allegedly parked his 1993 Jeep Cherokee on the train tracks near Chevy Chase Drive, causing the three-train wreck that killed 11 people and injured nearly 200 others.
