A Message from the President of the Associated Students of Cerritos College, Miles Aiello

Ever wonder what the Associated Students of Cerritos College (ASCC) have been doing at Cerritos College for students and student life this past year?

Remarkable and unprecedented efforts have been made that should be heard and noted by those who are associated with the college and community. Efforts include: avocation for Veterans, professionalizing the Student Affairs Office, along with community engagement, sustainability and student life in general.

We launched a new Veterans Day event that attracted over 300 people. It was emotional, powerful, and most importantly, served as a true reminder to the precious and delicate lives that are lost every day; lives that fight bravely and selflessly to defend our Nation so that we may enjoy all that we have and cherish.

Additionally, as a student body, the ASCC made strong efforts to reinvigorate a professional office atmosphere and refaced our campus perception. Further, we established a good rapport with a local nearby church; giving students the opportunity to provide much needed help and assistance to the less fortunate.

Moreover, we have been simultaneously pushing for Hydration Stations and other campaigns that relate to green technology and sustainable living. Hydration Stations currently passed and now for the first time ever, students at Cerritos College will provide fresh clean accessible water in pivotal locations around the campus for ALL who wish to hydrate themselves.

La Mirada~In 2014, the City of La Mirada achieved its lowest Part 1 crime rate in nearly 30 years and city administrators are attributing the historically low crime rate to a strong partnership between residents, businesses and the La Mirada Public Safety Team.

According to a recent crime analysis of surrounding communities in southeast Los Angeles and northern Orange County, La Mirada experienced the lowest number of major crimes last year. This is consistent with recent years, as major crimes have decreased by 49 percent in La Mirada since 2005.

Overall, there were 707 Part 1 crimes reported in La Mirada in 2014. Part 1 crimes include homicide, theft, burglary, automobile theft, robbery, assault, and arson. This was a significant drop compared to 2013 when there were 905 reported. The large decrease in Part 1 crime was due primarily to the drop in property crimes including burglaries, petty thefts and vehicle thefts.

"The City continues to have one of the lowest crime rates in the region with fewer calls for service and less criminal activity," says City Manager Jeff Boynton. "The La Mirada Public Safety Team continued to work cooperatively with residents other agencies to reduce crime and enhance the quality of life in La Mirada."

Throughout the year, the Special Assignment Officers worked with the Los Angeles County Probation Department to monitor probationers. Deputies worked with the District Attorney to ensure criminals were prosecuted and remained out of La Mirada for the longest extent possible.
