1Q2012 Crime and Vandalism Report for Coto de Caza and Ladera Ranch

Posted By CotoBlogzz May 20, 2012

Coto de Caza, CA - The quarter to quarter crime and vandalism report ending June 30, 2011 for Coto de Caza  showed that larceny/theft increased 300%  while disorderly conduct increased 200% since new OCSD management responsible for the community was installed. Since we could not see a plausible explanation for the overly wild swing, we attributed this to the management change, as we have seen this effect a couple of times in the past.  The quarter to quarter results for the month ending March 30, 2012 again showed a similar wild swing.  As in the past, we show the actual Orange County Sheriff Department (OCSD) actual data below, as well as a monthly average from 2Q2011.  Such average indicates still a higher than normal criminal activity, where the major categoirt3es are Larceny/Theft at 18% of total incidents, 4% for fraud and 9% for vandalism.

Coupled with the previously reported  negligible  CHP's presence in Coto de Caza -   less than 60% of the 120 hours per month, as originally contracted for and total inaction by the local governing body anent public safety, the community is certainly begging for trouble

 

Coto's Public Safety Ticking BombRhianna Woolsey died (December 7, 2005) in the first traffic fatality in Coto de Caza in the last ten years, followed three months later by a traffic accident that claimed Mr  Morteza Manian’s life.

 

Similarly, the quarter to quarter crime and vandalism report ending June 30, 2011 for Ladera Ranch showed a 300% increase in vandalism and a 100% reduction in narcotics violation.  The figures for the quarter ending March 30,2012 do not show such major swings, although  larceny accounts for 30% of the reported incidents, while fraud and vandalism account for 4% and 47%.

 As in most of the previous reports, while the violations in Ladera Ranch seem to involved the younger generation, in Coto de Caza, whether it is traffic violations or crime, the adults claim the largest share of violations.

Coto de Caza and Ladera Ranch 1Q2011 Public Safety Review
Coto de Caza, CA –By its own words and actions, it is fair to argue that Coto de Caza’s local governance is not only apathetic when it comes to public safety, but its own actions actually result increase the risk to residents. Worse, seems like adults in Coto de Caza have similar views as the local governance.

Our research over close to ten years indicate that whether a community is safe or not, is primarily a function of residents and local governance, not law enforcement. Consider that when a city in Orange County is deemed the safest city, what about the other 11 cities or the unincorporated areas? What about Coto de Caza with the highest crime rate in history in early 2010. After all, only common denominator is that the OCSD is the law enforcement agency. What does the OCSD do differently in the safest city, as opposed to the least safe city under its watch?



Coto de Caza's Traffic Incident Rate at Critical Danger Levels
Coto de Caza, CA - While the Coto de Caza's total population has been shrinking for the last ten years, including placement of 17 property liens for the month of January 2011 out of roughly 3500 homes, the policies pursued by the CZ Master association board of directors, the local governance, have consistently increased traffic with a reduction in CHP patrol hours, with predictable results. Consider that for close to a decade, we have consistently shown conclusive evidence that there is a direct correlation between the extent of the CHP traffic enforcement efforts and the number of traffic accidents in the community.

Coto de Caza Fires the CHP - Again!

Coto de Caza, CA - The CotoBuzz Journal has documented the one-sided hate-hate relationship between the CZ Master Association board of directors and law enforcement agencies in general, and the California Highway Patrol (CHP) specifically (CHP). In an open board meeting for example, a board member called the Orange County Sheriff's Department (OCSD) extortionists! Despite the public abuse the CHP has received from the Coto de Caza board of directors ever since the board was coerced into bringing the CHP back for pro-active traffic patrol, figures indicate that the CHP has been doing its job: - The Chart below was published Sept. 30, 2006.
