Everything's Up-to-Date in Palos Verdes Estates

Daily Breeze, 2/10/15, "Palos Verdes Estates
Council to consider body cameras for police"
Meeting at 7:30 p.m. City Hall

PVE, as it's known locally, is the Beverly Hills area of the beach cities.  Consider these statistics: 
Population (2010)  13,438
Ethnicities:  77% white, 17.4% Asian, 1.2% black

It is the only "city" up there to have its own police department with 25 policemen and a jail. 

How crime-ridden is it?  Zero murders. 
1 rape
5 assaults (there are a couple of high schools)
48 burglaries
80 thefts
8 stolen cars
1 arson  in all of 2012

Palos Verdes Estates is ranked the 81st richest place to live in the United States.

What the hell are they going to do with body cams on the police?  Endless selfies?  No good can come of this, she said darkly.
