Created by the City in partnership with the Los Angeles County sheriff’s and fire departments, the Let’s Talk Public Safety (LTPS) program is aimed at engaging with the community and raising awareness about everything public-safety related, from emergency preparedness to crime prevention.
The LTPS program, launched in fall 2016, opened with a series of neighborhood-based meetings held in various venues throughout the city. All Diamond Bar households received invitations (mailed letter and hand-delivered postcards) to participate based on their proximity to the meeting venue. Individuals and families who attended had a chance to listen to a panel-style presentation, visit information tables to obtain literature, resources and giveaways, and speak face-to-face with representatives from the City as well as the Sheriffs and Fire departments about their specific concerns or issues. The first meeting took place on October 17, 2016 at South Pointe Middle School, and the last meeting was held February 21, 2018 at the Diamond Bar Center.
