PHOTO: Mr. Asher Brodt of Imperial Real Estate yesterday hosted a fundraising luncheon on behalf of LCSW. The by-invitation-only event at the Imperial office in Lexington Towers was attended by professionals, including executives, attorneys, accountants, and real estate and insurance brokers, and highlighted the vital service that LCSW performs for Lakewood.
Mr. Brodt shared his personal admiration for the organization with the distinguished attendees. He acknowledged the supreme efforts LCSW has undertaken to keep the streets of Lakewood safe, efforts that often fall beneath the radar of communal awareness. He cited a specific situation, whose details he could not disclose due to confidentiality, where LCSW discreetly and professionally took control, expending tremendous amounts of time, effort and financial resources to bring the matter to a satisfactory conclusion. The incident enlightened him as to the vast scope of LCSW’s activities and complex situations they are often called upon to handle, and it enhanced his understanding of the role LCSW plays in upgrading the quality of life in Lakewood.
Committee member Meir Lichtenstein was in attendance as well, and led a question and answer forum which detailed the important role LCSW plays in the town.
He highlighted the value a citizens patrol brings to a municipality such as Lakewood and marveled at how the organization has built itself over the years to become a formidable force against crime. Lichtenstein went on to stress the positive working relationship between LCSW and the Lakewood Police Department. The LPD appreciates the assistance of LCSW volunteers in maintaining the safety and security of residents, as well as their involvement that facilitated numerous arrests made.
Attorney Larry Loigman, who is the legal advisor for LCSW, presented Mr. Brodt with an appreciation award thanking him for hosting the lucrative event.

“Most importantly, remember that during the holiday season, experience and research has proven that crime rates rise dramatically, says LCSW. “LCSW encourages all residents to leave valuables out of the car, to keep doors locked and to be aware of your surroundings. If you do see something suspicious please call the Lakewood Police Department and the LCSW 24 hour dispatch center immediately, because every minute delay gives criminal another minute to get away. By remaining vigilant and contacting the appropriate authorities immediately, you will help LCSW in their mission of keeping you safe.” [TLS-PR]
