Apartment owners along a notoriously crime-ridden street in Panorama City took the unprecedented step Thursday of offering private money to increase police patrols in their neighborhood. The offer met with enthusiasm from a City Council member, but drew a warning from a police official who said it could lead to wealthier neighborhoods buying more security at the cost of less protection in poor areas.

While we heartily appreciate the coming return of a police substation to the Pico neighborhood and the new addition of a five-man foot patrol, (Times, Feb. 18), we take exception to Police Chief James T. Butts' idea of the perceptions of this neighborhood. When we hear semiautomatic weapons being fired within 20 feet of our front doors an average of once per week, when a teen-ager is shot in the head just after the then-substation closed for the evening, when girls are shot while sitting in their car just 1 1/2 blocks away from our residences, and when only just two weeks ago a teen-ager was stabbed to death on a Sunday afternoon--I can assure you this is our reality!

Plans to hold a three-day charity carnival are in jeopardy because organizers aren't sure they can afford the $8,000 the city is asking for police patrols. Organizers from the Orange Host Lions Club plan to meet with police officials in an effort to work out a more affordable security plan for the May Festival, which is scheduled for May 7-9 at Hart Park. The event, which raises money to purchase hearing aids and eyeglasses for the needy, might be canceled if the cost of security isn't reduced.

In the aftermath of last month's earthquake, thousands of police officers, sheriff's deputies and National Guard troops helped keep criminals off the streets in record numbers, according to internal police records. Day-by-day records gathered by the Los Angeles Police Department and obtained by The Times show that so-called "repressible crime"--those crimes that experts say can be deterred by uniformed police officers--dropped 21.5% during the second half of January, the period after the Jan.

From trash dumpers to naked men, the Tujunga Ponds Wildlife Sanctuary has attracted an array of troublemakers, frustrating police who have found it nearly impossible to catch anyone in the hostile terrain. Time to bring in the cavalry. On Thursday, police and city officials announced that mounted patrols will spend weekends working the 13-acre site, which is closed to the public to protect animals such as ducks and crawdads.

In an effort to curb crime in public parks, the City Council voted Tuesday to spend $7,000 for extra police patrols and the posting of no-liquor signs. Several parks have been a crime problem for years, said Christopher K. Jarvi, director of the Parks Department. The police patrols will target the worst sites first, he said. But City Manager William O. Talley said that some parks are known hangouts for homosexuals, drug dealers and the homeless and that law enforcement will be difficult.

Los Angeles City Councilman Howard Finn on Wednesday won council approval to use $30,000 from his office budget to beef up police patrols in his northeast San Fernando Valley district. The money will be used to pay police overtime for two months so there can be a five-officer foot patrol in Pacoima on Friday and Saturday nights and a two-officer patrol car in Sunland-Tujunga every night, Finn said.
