Difficult subject as living in Southside Long Beach is more like living in OC. North Long Beach is heavily patrolled for gang activity (last mayor did a fantastic job cutting crime rates). However, southside is neglected. Aside from the shooting in my ally that took over 15 minutes for anyone to show up, and the mugging where many of the neighbors neglected the pleas for help and again another 15 minute response time. Luckily the local hotel that shares our community ally took it upon themselves to light the ally, restrict parking to residential/hotel usage, and install security cameras. There has since been a dramatic if not all together cut in drug dealings and usage in our local ally.

Living in Park Estates used to be something worth jealousy of friends. Now with the removal of our nearest grocery- Ralphs things have become a little more difficult with the commute required to Marina Pacifica just to buy a gallon of milk. The drive is not the worst part, but the mall parking just to buy said milk is a waste of time and inconvenient. I'd rather pay the extra $2.50 and just buy my milk at CVS now.
There are a good amount of homeless addicts on the street with limited areas for them to go. Food shelters have limited hours and rely mostly on volunteers. After care services are strictly for the privileged, causing many children left unattended, while their parents are working. The police have been in the news frequently for excessive force or involvement with deaths of young people. Parking tickets seem to be the main source of the cities income.
