Chief Hunt and Sgt. Sandoval helping out during today's Special Olympics Event held at Azusa Pacific University. It was a great event made possible by the many volunteers helping out and especially by the many great athletes who participated in today's events.

In celebration of National Library Week we had the honor of reading to the best kids in Azusa.

Each one of us became peace officers to help and serve our communities. But due to proposed legislation in Sacramento, we’re concerned about the ability to do just that. Earlier this week, Assemblymember Shirley Weber (D-San Diego) and Assemblymember Kevin McCarty (D-Sacramento) announced they would be introducing legislation that would raise the standard for legal review, in hindsight, of an officer’s decision to use force. We are concerned about the repercussions of this change for public safety. If our officers cannot respond to life and death situations until backup arrives or are forced to employ a checklist during rapidly advancing and extraordinarily dangerous situations, ultimately everyone involved is placed at a higher risk. Regardless of any outcome, we will always be here for you, to help and to serve. Please leave your comments below and email and call these Assemblymembers to voice your opinion. Assemblymember Shirly Weber 916-319-2079 Assemblymember Kevin McCarty 916-319-2007. #ServingOurCommunities Thank you from your Azusa Police Department.

Hello everyone! The National Prescription Drug Take Back Day addresses a crucial public safety and public health issue. According to the 2015 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 6.4 million Americans abused controlled prescription drugs. The study shows that a majority of abused prescription drugs were obtained from family and friends, often from the home medicine cabinet. The DEA’s Take Back Day events provide an opportunity for Americans to prevent drug addiction and overdose deaths. For more info please visit: https://takebackday.dea.gov Azusa will be participating in Take Back Day! When: Saturday, April 28th, between 10am-2pm Where: Azusa Police Department located at 725 N. Alameda Ave. Please keep in mind we will only be taking non-liquid prescription medications. No syringes, liquid medications, or street drugs will be taken.

On Monday, April 2, 2018, at about 10 am, an informant came into the Azusa Police Department's lobby and reported that her cat had been killed by a roommate. An investigation was launched, with patrol officers responding to the 400 block of Oak Court in Azusa. The investigating officers learned that Yifan Du (Age 27 of Azusa) had been disturbed by the cat's meowing during the early morning hours of 04/02/2018. Du requested the cat's owner bring the cat inside, in hopes it would stop meowing. The owner did this, and returned upstairs to go back to sleep. The owner was awakened by the sounds of something being hit, and when she went downstairs, found Du was violently harming the cat, causing the cat to die. Based on the investigation, Du was arrested for felony animal cruelty charges, and transported to the Azusa Police Department's Jail. Du was released after making bail. We would like to remind the community that the Azusa Police Department is committed to the protection of life and property, to include animals. If an animal is harmed in a criminal manner, we will conduct an investigation and seek charges, when appropriate.

Please join us in congratulating our newly promoted Captain Mike Bertelsen and Sergeant Erin Coulter.

This little girl is so amazing, and we are blessed to have had her donate stuffed animals to our department, for the little members of our community. Unfortunately, officers sometimes have to transport children to our station, a shelter, or a hospital. These times can be very scary and dark for them, and it crushes our hearts when it happens. Frida asked to have teddy bears donated to her cause, in lieu of receiving birthday presents, the last few years. Her selflessness and act of human kindness is absolutely AMAZING. Thank you, Frida. From the bottom of our hearts at Azusa PD, and all of our residents in the city of Azusa.

Team Azusa PD / Covina PD / Claremont PD is ready to race. Baker to Vegas 120 mile relay race starts now. We are wearing Pomona PD Officer Casillas’ badge number on our headbands in remembrance.

On behalf of Chief Steve Hunt and the men and women of the Azusa Police Department, we extend our deepest condolences to our colleagues at the Pomona Police Department. One of their officers was murdered, and a second officer is undergoing treatment at this time. The murder of this officer has affected all of us, as we are a close-knit community, not just locally, but globally. The men and women who have chosen to wear a shield on their chest do so, knowing that they may ultimately have to give their lives in the performance of their duties. Rest in peace, officer. Your work here is done. We'll take it from here...

On this day in 2014, Azusa lost a bright young woman. We continue to remember you Sandra Martinez. May you rest in peace.
