National Night Out is the first Tuesday of August, and all neighborhoods are encouraged to participate!

Some neighbors in Ladera Heights have been receiving invitations seemingly from Ladera Heights Neighborhood Association, asking them to join Nextdoorcom.  It sounds as if Ladera Heights Neighborhood Association is endorsing Nextdoorcom and is encouraging neighbors to join.  Please know that Ladera Heights Neighborhood Association in no way endorses Nextdoorcom, or encourages neighbors to join.  We do not give out our members information to anyone.  That is your choice. Nextdoorcom is a form of social media, and therefore provides the advantages and disadvantages of most social medias.
                            Crime Prevention Information 
In trying to keep current on crime in our City and neighborhood we have two new links on our website.  APD Northeast Area Command and the APD Foothills Command.  The link will take you to their page which has numerous links for all the information you may want regarding police reports and reporting, records search, protecting yourself and property, and numerous up to date resources at your fingertips.  These links are quite informative and useful. 

Start a Neighborhood Watch on Your Block

Fight crime in your block: consider starting a Neighborhood Watch on your block.  This is one of the best ways to reduce crime and get to know your neighbors at the same time.  Contact LHNA and we will assist you in starting a Neighborhood Watch in conjunction with the Albuquerque Police Department.  Once you have set up your Neighborhood Watch Ladera Heights Neighborhood Association will pay for the Neighborhood Watch signs.  Take an active role in creating a safer more secure neighborhood by organizing a Neighborhood Watch on your block.
