How to Prevent Package Thefts during the Holidays! During the holiday season, millions of packages will be shipped to homes and businesses across the country containing gifts and other valuable items. This increase in shipping also presents an opportunity for thieves to go "shopping" at your porch or front door. Many package thieves follow delivery trucks as they enter a neighborhood and wait for items to be dropped off on a front porch or near a front door when the resident is not home to receive the package. The thief then makes his or her way up to the front door and steals the package after the delivery truck has left. Please take precautionary measures in order to prevent becoming a victim of package theft. Some of the things that you can do are: • Keep the tracking number and closely follow the delivery progress of your package online. • Contact the shipping company and arrange for delivery at a time when you will be available. • Contact the shipper(s) and have the package rerouted to a place you trust. Or have the package delivered to your workplace. • Have FedEx and UPS packages sent directly to one of their local stores or distribution centers to be held for pickup. • Arrange for a neighbor to receive the delivery if you know that you will not be available. • Request signature proof of delivery. If you see any activity that would suggest someone is following a delivery truck or if you see someone remove a delivered package from a neighbor’s doorstep, immediately call 9-1-1. Wishing you a safe and merry holiday season, Beverly Hills Police Department
With the winter holidays fast approaching, the Beverly Hills Police Department would like to familiarize the community with our new “Hide It – Take It – Lock It” vehicle theft prevention campaign. This campaign is a reminder for those living or visiting Beverly Hills to be prudent in the security of their belongings and property in order to ensure the continuing safety of our community. The Beverly Hills Police Department would like to remind you to please be discreet about the presence of property in your vehicle, as well as taking a moment to make sure that your vehicle is locked and secured. Always lock your vehicle and do not leave valuable property inside. If you must leave valuables in your vehicle, HIDE IT inside your trunk. For SUVs and hatchback models, make sure that you pull the trunk cover so that the contents are not visible through the window. Remember to TAKE IT: do not leave your keys or key fob inside your vehicle. No matter how briefly you may be stepping away, this can create an opportunity for a vehicle theft to occur. Once you step away from your vehicle, be sure to LOCK IT. We hope that the “Hide It – Take It – Lock It” vehicle theft prevention campaign will resonate in your mind, and with this simple reminder, we can continue to have a safe community. Remember, you are our force-multiplier! For more vehicle theft prevention tips, please visit www.beverlyhills.org/police or contact the Beverly Hills Police Department.

MEDIA RELEASE - Text to 9-1-1 Comes to Los Angeles County Mobile users in the City of Beverly Hills and all of Los Angeles County now have the ability to send text messages to 9-1-1, giving hearing and speech impaired residents, or those in situations where it is too dangerous to dial 9-1-1, a potentially lifesaving option. "Call if you can -- text if you can't" is the slogan developed by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) as the new technology makes its debut in the most populous county in the United States. “This advancement in technology increases public safety by offering expanded accessibility to our 9-1-1 center during emergencies when voice calls are not possible”, said Beverly Hills Police Chief Sandra Spagnoli. “In our era where texting is so prevalent, the ability to text to 9-1-1 will give the community another means by which to receive emergency services”, said Beverly Hills Fire Chief Gregory Barton. Officials with the Los Angeles Police Department, Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, the California Highway Patrol (CHP) and the California Governor's Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES) made the announcement on the campus of California State University, Long Beach, the first Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) in the state of California to accept 9-1-1 texts. "This technology can save lives and meets the needs of a growing population that relies on text messaging as a key form of communication," said Mark Ghilarducci, Director of the California Governor's Office of Emergency Services. The Beverly Hills Police Department’s Dispatch Center is now equipped to receive and respond to mobile phone SMS Text to 9-1-1 messages. This service is available for use by the deaf, hard of hearing, or speech impaired, and in situations where it is too dangerous to make a voice call to 9-1-1. Below are the FCC guidelines for how to contact 9-1-1. If you use a wireless phone or other type of mobile device, make sure to do the following in an emergency: • If you can, always contact 9-1-1 by making a voice call, "Call if you can - text if you can't." • If you are deaf, hard-of-hearing or speech disabled, and Text to 9-1-1 is not available, use a TTY or telecommunications relay service, if available. • If you text 9-1-1 and text is not available in your area, you will receive a bounce back message advising "text is not available please make a voice call to 9-1-1." • Location accuracy varies by carrier and should not be relied upon. Be prepared to give your location. • Text to 9-1-1 service will not be available if the wireless carrier cannot ascertain a location of the device sending the message. • Text to 9-1-1 is not available if you are roaming. • A text or data plan is required to place a text to 9-1-1. • Photos and videos cannot be sent to 9-1-1. They cannot be received at the 9-1-1 center at this time. • Text messages should be sent in plain language and not contain popular abbreviations (SMH, LOL, ICYMI) or emojis, which will not be recognized. • Text to 9-1-1 cannot be sent to more than one person. Do not send your emergency text to anyone other than 9-1-1. • Texts must be in English only. There currently is no language interpretation for text available. This is still in development.
MEDIA RELEASE - BHPD Participates in Movember The Beverly Hills Police Department is pleased to announce its support of Movember. For over a decade, men across the United States have been challenged to grow mustaches during the month of November to generate awareness and promote fundraising for men’s health projects. As such, the month of November has been coined “Movember”. In anticipation of this year’s Movember, Beverly Hills Police Officer David Leber, developed a fundraising campaign within the Department. For the month of November, the Police Department has loosened its restrictions on facial hair for uniformed officers. Officers are permitted to grow longer mustaches or goatees with their donation to the Prostate Cancer Foundation. Many Beverly Hills Police Department employees participated in the campaign and have collectively donated over $2,300 to the Foundation this month. Officer Leber was inspired to raise funds for the Foundation and bring more awareness to prostate cancer in honor of his father who is a recent prostate cancer survivor. “I wanted to do something to bring more awareness to prostate cancer. The cause is near and dear to me because of my father,” said Officer David Leber. The Department recognizes and remembers the survivors and those we have lost to prostate cancer.
From our family to yours, BHPD wishes you a very #HappyThankgiving! We are always grateful to serve you and our wonderful community! 🍽🦃🍁 #PoliceAndCommunityTogether
