No-Shave November is in full swing at the Glendora Police Department! Officers and civilian employees are slowly transforming from clean-cut law enforcement professionals to fully certified mountain men. We are still law enforcement professionals, of course, but just a bit scruffier. The Glendora Police Department has officially joined The Movember Foundation's First-Responder Challenge. We currently sit in 3rd place out of 143 teams and we are well on our way to surpassing last year's donation total of $2,200. If you would like to check our team's progress or make a donation, please feel free to visit https://moteam.co/glendora-police-department! We are helping change the face of men's health one donation at a time.
The Executive Board of CLEARS (California Law Enforcement Association of Records Supervisors) has proclaimed Tuesday, November 7, 2017, as the “Law Enforcement Records and Support Personnel Day”.

No-Shave November at the Glendora Police Department has officially begun! Chief Rosales has authorized all Glendora Police personnel to grow their facial hair beyond Department grooming standards throughout the month of November to help start a conversation about men’s health issues. Prostate cancer, testicular cancer, heart disease, and mental health are the focus of this campaign. Department members who grow out their facial hair will be donating $50 to the cause. At the end of November, there will be a vote to determine who has the best facial hair and who has the worst. The reigning champion is Officer Michael Arana. The worst facial hair last year belonged to none other than Chief Tim Staab. Who will win the honors this year? Department personnel who make a donation of at least $5 will participate in the final vote. All monies received will be compiled and donated to The Movember Foundation (https://us.movember.com/). Last year was our first year and we were able to donate $2,200. Let’s try and beat it this year!
Chief Rosales and staff were in the Village today for the annual Trick or Treat in the Village event. Thanks to all who stopped by!
This Halloween, don’t let your evening turn into a nightmare. Remember, buzzed driving is drunk driving. Please don’t drink and drive.
Halloween Safety As parents get their kids ready for Halloween tomorrow, here are some tips they should follow: ~Use only flame-resistant costumes. ~Plan the Trick-or-Treat route - make sure adults know where children are going. A parent or responsible adult should accompany young children as they make their way around the neighborhood. ~Make sure Trick-or Treaters can see, and be seen. Give them a flashlight to light their way. Add reflective tape to costumes and Trick-or-Treat bags. Have everyone wear light-colored clothing to be seen. ~Instead of masks which can cover the eyes and make it hard to see, use face paint instead. ~Be cautious around animals, especially dogs. ~Visit only the homes that have a porch light on. Accept treats at the door – never go inside. ~Walk only on the sidewalks, not in the street. If no sidewalk is available, walk at the edge of the roadway, facing traffic. Look both ways before crossing the street, and cross only at the corner. Don’t cut across yards or use alleys. Don’t cross between parked cars. ~Make sure a grown-up checks the goodies before eating. (Make sure to remove loose candy, open packages and choking hazards. Discard any items with brand names that you are not familiar with. ~Use extra caution if driving. The youngsters are excited and may forget to look both ways before crossing. Wishing everyone a happy and safe Halloween! #halloweensafety #trickortreat

The next few days are going to be hotter than usual. The Los Angeles County Health Officer issued a heat alert as high temperatures have been forecast in our area on Monday, 10/23 through Tuesday, 10/24. Remember, when temperatures are high, even a few hours of exertion can have health consequences. Never leave children, elderly people, or pets home alone with no air conditioning, or especially in vehicles, even if the windows are "cracked." Temperatures are highest between 10:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m. If you are looking for a place to cool off, here is a list of our local cooling centers. Stay cool!
Are You Ready to ShakeOut? With 318 million people living and working in the United States, a major earthquake could cause unprecedented devastation. What we do now, before a big earthquake, will determine how well we survive and recover.

The drill is held annually on the third Thursday of October. This year, the International ShakeOut Day will be at 10:19 a.m. on October 19. The 2017 ShakeOut drill will be the largest preparedness event in world history. To participate, go to www.ShakeOut.org/register At the minimum practice "Drop, Cover, and Hold On" at the specified time, which is 10/19 at 10:19 a.m. this year. It is only a one-minute commitment for something that can save your life. For more information, visit www.ShakeOut.org. http://bit.ly/2d5KUnh
Coyotes in Our Community As a reminder, while coyotes are important to the eco system because they help to keep the rodent population down, they can also become troublesome. There are a few ways that we can help to keep coyotes out of our yards and living spaces. We can all help by: •Never leaving food out that attracts Coyotes. Although their main diet is mice, rats and rabbits, they also eat fruit, berries, domestic animal food and compost. •Secure your trash in cans with tight fitting lids and pick up fallen fruit from your yard. •Bring your pets in at night. •Secure water sources. •Never feed or attempt to tame coyotes. The result may be deadly conflicts with pets or livestock, or serious injuries to small children. If Coyotes are given access to human food and garbage, their behavior changes. They lose caution and fear. One way you can help to keep Coyotes away is to use “hazing” or fear conditioning methods. Here are a few ways of hazing that can be helpful: •Yelling and waving your arms while approaching the coyote. •Don’t let them feel comfortable in your neighborhood. Yell, use whistles, air horns, bells, “shaker” cans full of marbles or pennies, pots, lids or pie pans banged together to scare them away. •Projectiles: sticks, small rocks, tennis balls or rubber balls are another great way to fear condition Coyotes. If a coyote or any wildlife is posing an imminent threat, residents are instructed to call 9-1-1. To report sightings or other information on wildlife, contact the Glendora Police Department at 626-914-8250
