Today, SRO Dean and Motor Officer Garza visited Valencia High School during their lunch time and talked to the students about NOT drinking and driving.

All were treated and released at the scene, except the 93 year old female driver of the Suburban who was transported to a local hospital.

Nearly every recent vehicle burglary incident has involved an unlocked vehicle and/or items that have been left in plain sight. As a reminder, make sure nothing of value is left in plain sight when you leave your vehicle. Lately we have been experiencing a spike in thefts from vehicles at places where sporting events are occurring. The crooks know you're watching your kids soccer games too! Please remove any valuables from plain sight.

Today, the City of Placentia will be taking place in the test of the Orange County mass emergency alert system, commonly known as AlertOC. AlertOC is a county-wide emergency alert system that Placentia jointly-utilizes to notify residents of critical information which request immediate action in the event of a local emergency. This system will only be used in emergency situations such as immediate or eminent evacuations, shelter-in-place orders, and natural/human-induced disasters that have an effect on the well-being of our city and/or surrounding areas. Today, Orange County residents will receive two test emergency alerts to their mobile device, one from the Federal Government testing the Wireless Emergency Alert (WEA) system – listed as a “Presidential Alert”; and the second alert will be sent to those who have opted into the AlertOC system. A majority of all mobile devices will receive the federal WEA message; however, you will only receive the AlertOC message if you have opted into the system at Sign-up at

🚨🚨 DUI ARRESTS! 🚨🚨 Today at 5:33pm, Placentia Police officers responded to a traffic collision. After investigating the incident, one of the involved parties was arrested for Driving Under the Influence (DUI). About an hour later, at 6:45pm, Placentia Police Department Officers responded to a solo vehicle traffic collision in the area of Kraemer Blvd. and Madison Ave. The investigation resulted in another DUI arrest. ** Remember** Driving under the influence of marijuana or prescription medication is just as dangerous as driving under the influence of alcohol. Thankfully, no one was seriously injured in either of the collisions. Driving irresponsibly by being under the influence is never worth your life or the lives of others.

Congratulations to Golden Elementary for being named a National Blue Ribbon School for 2018!

Today marks the 1 year anniversary of the Route 91 shooting in Las Vegas. Our own Officer Gillis was there that night with his wife, family, and friends. Fortunately, Officer Gillis and the group he was with were able to get out safely. Unfortunately, 58 concert-goers lost their lives that day in this tragic event. We will never forget and we honor their memory today. This amazing mural is located in Placentia near the area of Bastanchury and McCormack. Thank you to Placentia residents, Dan and Thomas Chaney for the beautiful and meaningful art.
