In 1962, President Kennedy proclaimed May 15th as National Peace Officer's Memorial Day and the week of which the date falls as National Police Week. This year, Police Week will be observed from Sunday, May 13th through Saturday, May 19th. National Police Week honors the service and sacrifice made by law enforcement officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty. As this week begins, let us all remember and honor the officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice to ensure our safety. Covina Police Department would like to take this time to especially remember our officers lost in the line of duty, Sergeant Scott Hanson and Officer Jordan Corder. Your service will never be forgotten.

Happy Mother’s Day 💐

California Highway Patrol collision data indicates that 80% of the children under 4 years of age killed in traffic collisions since 1990 died in survivable crashes. During the week of April 29th through May 5th, law enforcement agencies in Los Angeles County are focusing on child restraint law(s) that require children under 2 years of age to ride rear facing (unless 40 inches or 40 pounds or more) to keep children safe. A strong well publicized enforcement has demonstrated to be one of the most effective ways to increase the use of child restraint systems. Fine allocation from the following specific sections provides money to local health departments for programs to provide education and low cost safety seats for families in need. CVC Section 27360 for children under age 8 CVC Section 27360.5 for children who are at least age 8 but under age 16

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. Early last 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 Police Department.

Covina Police Department will join law enforcement throughout the state to step up enforcement along with awareness efforts by the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) to discourage distracted driving. Officers will have a special emphasis this month on enforcing all cell phone and distracted driving laws. The goal is to increase voluntary compliance by drivers, but sometimes citations are necessary for motorists to better understand the importance of driving distracted. We are deploying extra traffic officers with grant-funded resources on April 9th through April 14th in city locations with higher numbers of traffic collisions. Violators will be stopped and cited with fines set at $162 for first time offenders. This campaign is funded by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Covina Police has the following Safety Tips: - If you receive a text message or need to send one, pull over and park your car in a safe location, but ‘never’ on a freeway. Once you are safely off the road, it is safe to text. - Designate your passenger as your “designated texter.” Allow them access to your phone to respond to calls or messages. - Do not engage in social media scrolling or messaging while driving. - Cell phone use can be habit-forming. Struggling to not text and drive? Put the cell phone in the trunk or back seat of your vehicle until you arrive at your final destination.
