Statement from Chief Dominick Rivetti
Beverly Hills, CA – I’d like to take a moment and address the appalling crime that occurred this week at one of our restaurants. First and foremost, safety is our top priority in Beverly Hills and criminal activity of any kind will never be tolerated.
I want the world to know that Beverly Hills is a very safe community. We invest significantly in our police department to ensure our officers have every resource necessary to do their jobs effectively. We will be supplementing our personnel with armed, private security guards who will have a strong, visible presence in the City. We work closely with our businesses so that shoppers and restaurant guests feel comfortable and secure. And we are vigilant in investigating and bringing to justice those who make the grave mistake of committing crimes here.
We are actively looking for the suspects in this case, in cooperation with our law enforcement partners. While similar crimes are also happening in other cities, our responsibility is to those who live in, work in, and visit Beverly Hills.
We will keep the community updated on this incident, but in the meantime, please rest assured that the Beverly Hills Police Department is taking every possible measure to ensure your safety and security.
