Blythe Police Department News

A great non-profit to help kids in Blythe.

The new order of Pink Patches for Breast Cancer Awareness have come in. As you can see we added pink ribbons to the new ones. They are still only $10.00, and can be purchased at the Blythe Police Department. Proceeds will go to the Blythe Cancer Resource Center and the Blythe Police Widows and Orphans Fund. The last order of 100 patches sold out in four days! Thank you to everyone who is supporting this very worthwhile fundraiser.

A City of Blythe Team made up of City Manager Mallory Crecelius, Police Department staff, Citizens on Patrol members and Blythe Police Explorer Scouts participated in the Blythe Clean up day Saturday. The turn out was good and two large roll off bins were filled. Thanks to Mayor Reynolds for organizing this event!

Excellent decision and well deserved.

A big thank you to all our volunteers and to the community for their support. It truly takes a village!

A huge thank you to Ironwood State Prison and their inmate fund. The Blythe Police Activities League received $1394.76 in much needed funds for our youth programs. Great Partners!

Thanks to all those that came out, it was great meeting you.

Not knowing how successful the Pink Patch project would be the Blythe Police Officers’ Association ordered 100 patches. We are happy to say they completely sold out in four days! More are ordered, but unfortunately turn around time is about three weeks. Thank you to everyone who supported this cause. We will update when the new patches are in, (hint: the new ones were changed slightly).

A great event, hope to see you all there.

The Pink Patch Project is an innovative public awareness campaign designed to bring attention to the fight against breast cancer. It is estimated that approximately 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. The program centers on vibrant pink versions of the public safety officer's uniform patch. These bright pink patches have been specially designed by members of the Blythe Police Department specifically for the Pink Patch Project campaign. Members of each of the participating agencies wear these pink patches on their regular uniforms for the entire month of October each year during “Breast Cancer Awareness Month.” The pink patches are intended to stimulate conversation with the community and to encourage public awareness about the importance of early detection and the on-going fight against this disease. How Can You Support the Pink Patch Project? Starting today the Blythe Police Officers’ Association will be selling our Pink Patch for $10.00 each. The proceeds from the sale of the Pink Patches will go directly to the Blythe Cancer Resource Center and the B.P.O.A. Widows & Orphans Fund. Please stop by the Blythe Police Department during regular business hours to purchase a Pink Patch, and support local Blythe cancer patients.

Sacramento County Deputy Mark Stasyuk is the 108th Police Officer to die in the line of duty in the United States in 2018. Deputy Stasyuk was responding to a simple disturbance at a business when he was shot and killed today. Please pray for Deputy Stasyuk, his family, friends and co-workers as they deal with this unbearable loss. We also pray that he will be the last.

The Annual Blythe Police Activities League Dinner is less than 3 weeks away. This dinner helps fund most of the trips and activities for the PAL kids throughout the year. Tickets are available at the Police Department. Hope to see you there!

Lt. Josh Coe and several members of the Blythe Police Department were honored today to participate in the Spirit Ride Ceremony as it came through Blythe. All 50 States now have laws requiring drivers to slow down and move over for vehicles stopped on the shoulder. Please be courteous and obey the law, it truly is a matter of life and death.

This afternoon Officer Arturo Vargas was sworn in as Blythe’s newest Police Officer in front of many family and friends. Here Officer Vargas is congratulated and welcomed by Chief Jeff Wade. Welcome to Blythe Officer Vargas!

Today Sergeant Heriberto “Ed” Cavazos retired after 20 plus years of service to the citizens of the City of Blythe. While we are sad to see him go we are very excited for him and his family as they start this new chapter of their lives. Thank you Sgt. Cavazos for your leadership and dedication, and for having a positive impact on all those whose lives you touched.

Starting today the public will see four new 2018 Ford Interceptor SUVs with newly redesigned graphics. The new vehicles will replace four aging 2009 sedans. If you see an Officer out and about stop and say hi and get a closer look. Our new motto is displayed on the doors, “Protect With Honor, Serve With Pride.”

Congratulations to all the recipients, but especially Blythe Police Dispatcher Victor Mendoza and Blythe Police Officer Ivan Duran! We are very proud of both of you and appreciate your hard work and dedication.

Excellent work by Lt. Coe, Det. Iniguez, F.T. Hudson, A.C.O. Bush and Dispatch Supervisor Bush. Thank you all for your compassion and dedication during this difficult call for service.
