Los Angeles Citywide Nuisance Abatement Program (CNAP)
Prosecutors assigned to CNAP abate nuisance properties with dangerous gang/gun/narcotics, and, when appropriate, prostitution activity, at hotels, motels, apartment buildings, single family dwellings, and businesses. These attorneys file civil lawsuits against property owners, as well as the persons creating the nuisance, to obtain injunctive relief that will abate the specific problems plaguing the particular property and spilling out into the surrounding community. These orders often include comprehensive physical and managerial improvements.
CNAP has been in existence for 30-plus years and is staffed by experienced, conscientious, humane and highly professional public servants. It has received multiple federal and state grants for its public safety work and numerous awards and commendations for its public safety successes.
