🔥DUI crash in Gardena at Rosecrans and Gramercy. GPD 🚨🚔arrived within seconds. Thankfully, everyone was okay. One incustody. #drivesafely #dontdrinkanddrive #dontspeed #justdont #notworthit

Here’s two more that didn’t get the memo! — Do your dirt elsewhere! So one of our officers spotted a stolen car near Rosecrans and Vermont. While waiting for back up, the crooks actually made a “kinda smart” move and got outta Gardena, but got onto the Harbor Freeway during heavy traffic. The Bonnie and Clyde team decided to flee and plow through the middle of stopped cars to get away. Fortunately nobody was hurt in the crashes. Our Officer, who cares about the safety of our community, chose not to mimic this atrocious driving and sadly lost sight of the perps. They actually had that rare chance at getting away from GPD! 😵 Welllllll, the suspects took the 91 WEST, BACK into GARDENA!🤔😆👎🏼 Of course it didn’t take long for our amazing keen-eyed community members to report these two characters arguing (probably about her poor driving) then running off through their yards. Both were quickly captured along with their methamphetamine (surprise!), and stolen property from other crimes (surprise!) He said he just met her that day — she said he’s her kid’s father 🤷🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♂️ Either way, we love our community who helped out and made us all a little safer! 👍🏼 #youBLEWit! #shouldajustdrovestraight2jail #nexttimegoeast #trythetruthforonce #gardenapd #neighborhoodwatch #methruinslives

Often the Chief of Police Office receives emails from the community. This morning was a nice email attached with a photo of our personnel in action! Thank you Mr. Manuel for taking the time to recognize one of our Parking Enforcement Officers.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to our brothers and sisters at the Long Beach Fire Department. Two of their fire fighters were shot, early this morning, while responding to a possible explosion. Fire Captain Dave Rosa was killed in the line of duty. RIP, sir. Thank you for your service.

⛔️No Parking Anytime⛔️ — A couple of ladies got a wild ride this morning 😵🏠💥🚙when they lost control of their car, reversed across the sidewalk, and COMPLETELY into someone’s living room! We are extremely thankful to report that nobody was in the home, and the ladies in the car were not injured! Oh, and the neighbor in the adjoining unit was able to sleep right through it!😴😴 Please drive carefully! #thebrakeisontheleft #toyotacoffeetable #gardena #parkingproblems #oopsididitagain

At 615pm Officers received a call of a possible burglary in progress near 156/Crenshaw. The homeowner, who was inside his home, saw the suspects trying to open his sliding glass door (in the back behind the gate) and called the Police. When officers arrived two suspects ran and a foot pursuit ensued. Both suspects were later located. Unfortunately the get away driver got away, but we got two out of three. This is a good reminder to keep your doors locked even when your home. Who knows what would have happened if they made it inside.

Congrats 🎉🍾🎊 to newly promoted Lieutenant Chris Cuff and Sergeant Mike Robbins. Chief Kang officially announced that both would be promoted on July 1st. Chris has been with the Department for 16 years and has worked Detectives, Patrol, and Special operations. Mike came to us from the Orange Police Department two who. As a side note, Mike worked for Gardena previously from 1991 to 1998 and came back to us in 2016. Congrats and well deserved to both.

Scholar of the day — this gentleman was driving a stolen $40k Acura MDX, which he says he bought for $500 (beat that car pros!!) He also had mail from several apartment buildings on the block, and he’s definitely not the mail carrier! #dontbelievehim #offtothebighouse #gardena #donttouchmystuff

Does Gardena need a Mounted Patrol Team🐎? This program may provide an enhanced level of public safety, crime suppression, and community involvement for the people of Gardena. #Thoughts?💭 #WorkingWithTheCommunity🤞🏽#TeamGardena⚜️

Happy Father’s Day Gardena! We’ll be here ready to serve if/when you need us! #TeamGardena⚜️

Scoop and run. Just now, officers received a call of an 18 month old baby not breathing. When officers arrived, they found the infant unresponsive. Unable to wait for the Fire Department, they made the decision to transport the child themselves to Gardena Memorial Hospital. Fortunately, the infant began breathing and is in the care of emergency workers at this time. These calls hit home since most of us have children. It’s possible that the child suffered a seizure due to a spiking temperature. It’s a good reminder to keep a close eye on your infant when they are sick since they can’t communicate like we can.

Update: 1:20pm Intersection is now open Advisory: avoid Rosecrans and Western. North and south closed. East and west delayed. Suspect possibly DUI was involved in a traffic collision hit and run in Torrance. Suspect then got into a collision at Rosecrans and Western. Minor injuries to involved parties. Suspect in custody.

So many reasons to appreciate our Firefighters🔥; like when a car shears off a fire hydrant!!!💦💦 #LAcountyFire🔥 #SummerDays🌤 #WorkinTheProblem🔧 #TeamGardena⚜️
