Reported crime continues to trend downward in our division and in particular in the Beechmont area.  As reported in previous submissions, overall criminal activity is down in Beechmont and Beat 6 compared with this time last year.  4th Division, Beat 6 encompasses Beechmont as well as the areas around Southside Drive to the intersection of Southland.  In the most recent Compstat report year to date compared with 2008, property crime is down 18.1% and violent crime is down 11.5% on Beat 6, which encompasses the Beechmont area, with overall crime in the division being down 11.9%. These are very good numbers and shows the excellent relationship that your community has with LMPD.  Blockwatches are a key weapon in the struggle to reduce criminal activity.   If you are interested in forming a block watch for your street, please contact our Division Resource Officer, Officer Barbara Bailey,

You may now use the Metrowatch system available on the LMPD website to track crime in a specific area.  Simply click on the Metrowatch link at www.lmpdky.org.

Beechmont’s Christmas on the Corner

Here comes Santa Claus, here comes Santa Claus, right down Southern Parkway!  He’s riding on a big red fire truck, instead of his usual sleigh.  Coming to greet all of Beechmont’s children waiting at the Gazebo. Ho! Ho! Ho!
Please join us on Friday, December 4th, at 7:00 PM as we await Santa’s annual arrival at the Gazebo at Southern Parkway at Woodlawn Ave..  Santa will lead us in song as we walk to the library singing carols.  Once there, we’ll find plenty of cookies and hot chocolate to enjoy while the children share their Christmas wishes with Santa.
We will also be having our annual cookie contest. If you’d like to participate, please make sure you have your name and/or address and phone number on your entry.  Prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place.  Please have your cookies to the Iroquois library by 6:30 PM if you would like to participate in the cookie contest. You can also donate cookies, even if you don’t wish to participate in the contest!  This is a free event. Thanks for your support and  we hope to see you at the Gazebo!
