Weekly Tip - Think Pool Safety!

Image
Summer is quickly approaching and one of the biggest attractions during this time of year is the swimming pool. Unfortunately, our pools are also one the leading contributors to accidents, injury and death in the home. Children love water and a pool is an inviting place, not only in the summer, but throughout the year for a young child. That is why there are rules and regulations that apply to all residential swimming pools. Fences, alarms, clearance, self-closing gates and latches, are just some of the requirements. Visit your local City website and view the municipal code requirements or call your local City Hall. The  U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission  has a handout  available on-line that gives excellent tips for pool safety. See the  City of Arcadia website  and other sources, such as the  Red Cross , for additional tips and resources available on the web. In addition to the physical requirements, remember to always be aware of your young childs whereabouts when pools are ne

As the Memorial Day weekend approaches and the summer vacation season ramps up, The Arcadia Police Department wants to keep our community members safe, and make sure people are doing the one thing that can save them in a crash: buckling up. If the campaign wakes up the hundreds of thousands of Californians who still don’t heed the dangers of unrestrained driving and gets them to buckle up, it will be a success. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), nearly half of the

On Thursday evening, May 11th, a GPS enabled package was taken from an Arcadia resident's porch. The package had been placed there by APD in cooperation with the resident. Following the GPS signal, officers were led to a business parking lot in the City of Hacienda Heights where a suspect vehicle in the theft was found. The suspect vehicle immediately fled and a pursuit was started. Due to the unsafe driving by the suspect, the pursuit was terminated shortly thereafter by APD. Air support continued to track the suspect vehicle and another police agency initiated a pursuit of the suspect who ultimately abandoned the vehicle in the City of South Gate, fleeing on foot to a nearby theater. The suspect was found inside the theater and was arrested. During the investigation, officers learned the suspect vehicle was embezzled and they found stolen items to include credit/debit cards along with methamphetamine inside the vehicle. The suspect was identified as Christopher T. Cook, a 27-year

National Police Week 2017

President Donald J. Trump Proclaims May 15, 2017, as Peace Officers Memorial Day and May 14 through May 20, 2017, as Police Week PEACE OFFICERS MEMORIAL DAY AND POLICE WEEK, 2017 - - - - - - - BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA A PROCLAMATION During Peace Officers Memorial Day and Police Week, we honor the men and women of law enforcement who have been killed or disabled in the course of serving our communities.  Police officers are the thin blue line whose sacrifices protect and serve us every day, and we pledge to support them as they risk their lives to safeguard ours. Last year, 118 officers died in the line of duty, and of those, 66 were victims of malicious attacks.  These attacks increased by nearly 40 percent from 2015.  This must end.  That is why one of my first actions was to direct the Department of Justice to develop a strategy to better prevent and prosecute crimes of violence against our Federal, State, tribal, and local law enforcement officers.

The Most Boring Machine ARTICLE

Image
A tunnel-making behemoth has already chewed up and spat out one politician, writes Mark Harris. In 1926, Bertha Knight Landes became the first female mayor of Seattle — and the first of any major American city. After winning a landslide victory by promising to clean up city hall, she cracked down on police corruption and campaigned for municipal ownership of the city’s electricity company and streetcars. In 2013, the freshly elected mayor, Ed Murray, is planning a 21st-century spin on similar issues: supporting a Department of Justice reform of Seattle’s troubled police force, planning city-wide wireless Internet, and pushing out light rail to more neighborhoods. And yet Bertha may still rise up to haunt him. Fifty feet below downtown Seattle, the world’s largest tunnel-boring machine, nicknamed Bertha after the city’s progressive mayor, lies still. This remarkable vehicle weighs 7,000 tons, stretches nearly 330 feet long, and has a 60-foot diameter. When fully operational,

Weekly Tip - Motorcycle Licensing and Safety

Image
May is  Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month . Here is a post offering some tips on motorcycle safety and education. Summer time, gas prices, both are reasons why many people turn to a motorcycle for their daily commute. Motorcycles can save time and fuel cost, but without proper training and practice, the rider can be much more prone to becoming involved in a collision compared to driving a car. California law requires that a motorcycle rider obtain a  Class M1 endorsement   on their license. The test is fairly simple and with a minimum of studying and practice, a rider can pass the tests. However, that is NOT enough. Prior to straddling a motor and hitting the streets or freeways, motorcycle riders need to understand their bikes, know their capabilities as a rider, what to look for, and what to expect while riding. To accomplish this, the rider needs to practice, study, and hopefully, take a safety course. Learning from other's mistakes and taking advantage of the advice from an exp

Bicycle Riders and Motorists Alike, Let's Be Cautious!

Image
The Arcadia Police Department and the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) today call upon bicycle riders and motorists alike to be cautious during May’s National Bicycle Safety Month, and every other month during the year. For riders and drivers, "Roll Model" means actively decreasing the risks of traffic crashes, preventable injuries and deaths. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that 818 bicyclists died and over 45,000 were injured in crashes in 2015, with deaths rising over 12% from 2014 numbers. Over the 10-year period from 2006 to 2015, the average age of cyclists killed in motor vehicle crashes increased from 41 to 45. Alcohol involvement – either for the motor vehicle operator or for the cyclist – was reported in 37% of all fatal cyclist crashes in 2015. “Spring has arrived after a wet winter season which makes it a great time for family and friends to strap on a helmet, hop on a bike, and see just how fun and welcoming our communi

In its bid to reduce the effects of flooding as a result of heavy rainfall, Oyo State Government has ordered the removal of no fewer than 200 illegal structures at Ojoo Round-about, Ojoo Area in Ibadan. It also disclosed that about 24 rivers will be dredged as part of the proactive measures to mitigate against flooding in the state. Commissioner for Environment and Water Resources, Mr. Isaac Ishola ordered the removal of the illegal structures at Ojoo Round-about, Ojoo Area in Ibadan while monitoring the weekly environmental sanitation exercise within the State capital.

The crime of identity theft is quite often coupled with other crimes. This week saw a case where a suspect was arrested for ID and mail theft, narcotics possession, and attempted grand theft. Overnight on April 24th, officers came across a man sleeping in a car with no license plates behind a commercial business on Baldwin Avenue. The officers woke the man and while talking with him they discovered he was in possession of several California Identification Cards in the names/photos of other persons. The man presented one of the identification cards to officers saying it was him. During their investigation, the officers found items of mail, tax information, and  bank statements belonging to other people, along with Heroin and Methamphetamine inside the car.

Weekly Tip - May is National Bike Month

Image
Did You Know? Head injuries are the most serious type of injury and the most common cause of death for bicyclists. Bicycle helmets have been proven to reduce the risk of head and brain injury when a crash occurs by as much as 85 to 88 percent. Children with bicycle-related head injuries are more likely to require hospitalization and to have their injuries result in death. More than one-fifth of all bicyclist deaths occur among school age youth ages 5 to 15. More children go to hospital emergency departments for bicycle related crashes than for any other sport. Of child bicyclists (16 years and under) killed on the road, 49 percent are killed while bicycling on minor roads (connecting roads and neighborhood streets) and almost 49 percent are killed while bicycling on major roads (high-volume roads across cities and towns). Almost half of bicycle crashes occur in driveways or on sidewalks For some great safety tips and additional information, please visit the  Safe Kids USA website .  Yo
