Irvine spoke to a packed room Tuesday night during the City Council meeting,
presenting Manhattan Beach crime statistics, information on Assembly Bill 109 and how the public can get involved to help prevent crime.
The chief's presentation comes on the heels of a brazen crime in the city last Thursday in which two residents were tied up and held at gunpoint as their home was ransacked. One of the residents received a minor laceration to the head when he was hit in the head with a gun.
Linda Reinstein, a resident who had more than $200,000 of jewelry and other significant items taken Aug. 2 when her home was burglarized, is one of a concerned group of residents partnering with city officials and the Manhattan Beach Police Department to keep crime out of the city.
Victims of recent crimes will also speak about their experiences.
