Tomorrow is Halloween, which means the streets of Madera will be filled with little ghosts, goblins, witches, and characters. Please remember as you drive in our neighborhoods that little ones are difficult to see and can walk out into the roadway from unusual places. We are asking drivers to please drive slowly, even 25 MPH may be too fast. Parents, please make sure your little ones are visible. Glow sticks, flashlights and reflective material on costumes make it easier for the motoring public to see our little ones. We at the Madera Police Department will have additional officers out in neighborhoods reminding motorists to slow down and encouraging our children to have fun while staying safe. We hope everyone has a fun and safe Halloween. #2722

Yesterday, officers were dispatched to a residential neighborhood near Westberry and Howard. Several suspects wearing hooded sweatshirts and possibly masks, were seen in back yards of that neighborhood, appearing to be attempting to enter the homes. One armed resident confronted the suspects, who then ran away. Officers responded and observed three suspects running from the area. The first responding officer was able to detain one of them. The other two suspects continued to run from the scene and were eventually detained by other responding officers. Thomas Jackson (41) (red shirt) was arrested for Prowling. Lane Phillips (26) (black shirt) was arrested for falsely identifying himself and a felony grand theft warrant. Khalil Walker (19) (red and grey sweatshirt) was arrested for falsely identifying himself and a probation violation. This is an ongoing investigation if you have any information regarding this incident, please contact Detective Sauceda at 675-4244. This is another example of what community teamwork can accomplish. An alert neighborhood/community is a very important part of crime prevention and instrumental in assisting us in reducing the level of crime in our community. If you are not already a part of a neighborhood watch program and have interest in developing one in your neighborhood, you can contact Lacy Burleson at 675-4290. NW3512

During a call for service at the Cottonwood Creek Apartment complex, Corporal Boehm had the opportunity of handling out stickers and playing with slime made by kids at the after school program. This was an opportunity not to missed at hanging out with some great kids of the City of Madera. The slime was gross in case anyone was wondering. STB 3850

This morning our officers had a blast at the Safe Walk to School event at Centennial Park. This event was hosted by the Madera County Public Health Department. Kids from Washington Elementary School walked with our officers as well as City Councilmen Will Oliver and Jose Rodriguez, in an effort to promote active, healthy lifestyles. Not only was this a great experience for the kids, it was also a positive way for our officers to start their day.

Officer Alva is one of our Officers who is very active in our community. Some people may recognize Officer Alva from one of her many "Coffee with a Cop" appearances. Officer Alva has reached out to our elderly community at events such as Coffee with a Cop (at The Star Center) and a new program involving Animal Therapy. Officer Alva has partnered with Sandra Velasco and her large dog as they attended Avalon Health Care for Animal Therapy. Some of the elderly members had the opportunity to pet and play with Sandra’s dog as they enjoyed their time with them. The members are not allowed to keep pets at the nursing center, so this program afforded them a great opportunity for them. SB3372
