In 1962, President Kennedy proclaimed May 15 as National Peace Officer Memorial Day and the calendar week in which May 15 falls, as National Police Week. On May 6 and 7th, the California Peace Officers’ Memorial Ceremonies were held at the California Peace Officers’ Memorial Monument in Sacramento on State Capital grounds. Each year our nation loses between 140-160 law enforcement officers in the line of duty. The ceremonies serve to formally enroll peace officers who have died in the line of duty the preceding year. Beginning May 13, 2018, and for the duration of National Law Enforcement Memorial Week, Alhambra Police uniformed personnel will wear black bands to honor and remember our fallen colleagues who made the ultimate sacrifice. Please pay tribute with us to the over 1500 officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice and to honor the families left behind. #PoliceMemorialWeek #Thinblueline #APDhonoringthosewhomadetheuntimatesacrifice

Just after officers arrived on scene of the shots fired call, and unrelated to this call, a robbery with a handgun took place in the 1000 Block of South Edith. When the victim refused to give them any money, the suspects punched the victim several times and then fled without any stolen property. We were unable to locate the suspects.

Help Get Me Home – This little dog walked into the Alhambra Civic Center Library about an hour ago. There are no collars or tags. If you can help reunite this little pooch with his owner, we’d appreciate it.

As Safety Belt Awareness (April 29, 2018, and May 5, 2018) week starts, we would like to remind you of the importance of properly using a seat belt and keeping our children safe while in a vehicle. Our goal is to promote child seat and seat belt usage, and to encourage parents/motorists to ensure that children’s safety restraints are being used correctly when children occupy a vehicle. We hope with this awareness, it reduces the number of injuries sustained by nonuse or improper use of seat belts. As a reminder, the following are some vehicle codes for child passenger/seat belt violations: • V.C. 27360 (a) Child must ride in a rear seat in a child passenger restraint system until at least 8 years. See section for exceptions. • V.C. 27360.5 (a) Children 8-15 years must ride in safety seat, booster, or properly fitted vehicle belt (back seat not required, but recommended). • V.C. 27315(d) (1) A person shall not operate a mother vehicle on a highway unless that person and all passengers 16 or older are properly secured in a safety belt. If you would like to have your children’s car seat inspected to make sure it is properly being used/secured please contact our Car Seat Technician Traffic Analyst at 626-308-4816.
