The Dirt on SMPA

Want to know the best deal in town?

The Santa Monica Protective Association (SMPA) is a non-profit organization operating in the 90402 zip code.

This is from their website:

The mission is simple:  SMPA exists for the sole purpose of deterring criminal activity, and they do this by pooling member dues in order to provide the neighborhood with armed patrol services.  Many of the activities of SMPA are carried out by civic-minded volunteers who do their part to aid SMPA in its crime deterrence mission.


SMPA has operated continuously since it was founded in 1981. Prior to its beginning, the neighborhood experienced several violent crimes that are really too horrible to mention.  A few prudent citizens of this neighborhood banded together, combined their resources, and SMPA was born.  Under the watchful eye of SMPA’s leaders, armed security officers began patrolling the streets, and as more members joined, the patrol service expanded.

SMPA serves the Santa Monica neighborhood bounded by Ocean Ave, Montana Ave, 26th Street, and the northern border of Santa Monica. About one-half of the families in the area are members of SMPA; it would be an even safer neighborhood if they all were!
If you would like more information on the SMPA, call me and I am happy to fill you in.
