Cities to Try Regional Effort to Control Cruising

Officials from four neighboring cities met with local and regional law enforcement representatives at Montebello City Hall last week in an informal session to discuss ways of combatting the local cruising problem. They were scheduled to meet again this week.

Montebello Mayor Ed Pizzorno said he decided to call the initial session after repeated complaints. Pico Rivera, which bears the brunt of the cruisers, had the largest contingent: three members. Also on hand were officials from Temple City and Rosemead and the CHP.

Montebello Police Chief G. Steve Simonian noted that although cities have been able to push cruising from one municipality to another but that a comprehensive regional approach has never been attempted.
