About Us

Our Mission

The mission of LA Shmira is to provide peace of mind to the residents of the greater Los Angeles area by having members patrolling the streets and reporting crimes in progress to the local law enforcement agency applicable for the area at hand. 

LA Shmira is also available to assist or work hand in hand with the Police, Fire Department, Hatzolah and Chaverim on calls such as missing persons, event safety standby in a non security enforcement roll, as well as Friday night and Holiday escorts for members of the community who feel uncomfortable walking alone at night. 

LA Shmira is available 24/7/365 with a dedicated team of dispatchers and a group of some 25 volunteer members who are willing to put work, family and life on hold to help a community member in their time of need.
