My name is Lisa Lewis. I have lived in Anaheim for 51 years, since 1963. I am a small business owner for senior care. I have a caregiving company called Preferred Care. My hobbies and interests are food and wine. I enjoy being on the Chief’s Neighborhood Advisory Council (CNAC) because it has given me a great overview of the diversity and challenges within our city.
Community Involvement & Volunteerism
Community involvement and volunteerism are important to me because it is important to be connected to my community and to be able to give back. I have learned how community-focused the police department is. The great thing about being a member of CNAC is learning about our diverse city and how the different communities have such varying needs and challenges.
I have lived in Anaheim my entire life and am a graduate of Canyon High School, which has contributed to my experience. Also, I am a Citizen Police Academy (PACE) graduate and active in Community Emergency Response Team (CERT). I have stayed local and have attended Fullerton College and Cal State Fullerton.
The best thing about my neighborhood is that I feel a real sense of community and our neighbors are able to pull together to help fight crime and to help those in need. It is important to partner with the police department because the police officers keep our streets safe, but they cannot be everywhere. This is why building a strong support team between the department and residence not only creates a stronger bond of trust, but also creates a better sense of community involvement.
