We were honored to attend the 49th Annual Peace Officers Memorial Ceremony and Wall Dedication this morning, to commemorate the lives of the peace officers who were killed in the line of duty while serving the residents of Los Angeles County. We will never forget our name on that wall. #LouiePompei #neverforget #hero

As 2018 Police Week comes to an end in these waning Sunday evening hours, the men and women of the Glendora Police Department would like to thank all of you for your encouragement, reassurance, and unwavering support as we push forward in carrying on the legacy of those we have lost and those who came before us.

Did you know that only 3% of the people in the United States give blood? Did you know that 1 donation can save 3 lives? Did you know that every 2 seconds someone is in need of blood? Your opportunity to give can take place today until 3:30 p.m. at the Bidwell Forum located about the Glendora Library at 140 S. Glendora Avenue. Be a hero. Give blood.

Just a reminder that tomorrow is Coffee With a Cop on Campus at Citrus College from 11:30am-1:30pm.

Glendora PD will be hosting its annual Red Cross “Battle of the Badges” Blood Drive on Thursday May 17th 11AM to 5PM at Bidwell Forum 140 S Glendora, GLENDORA 91741 (the flyer incorrectly says Azusa) . We welcome public participation (16 and over, with parental consent form). Walk-ins are welcomed, but you are encouraged to schedule an appointment to guarantee a quick visit. Just click on the link below. Donors will be given this year’s Battle of the Badges Tee as well as a $5 Amazon E-Giftcard (while supplies last!) and of course, yummy snacks. As blood supplies have been critically low, we need as many people as possible to donate so feel free to pass the info on to everyone you know. If you’d like to streamline your donation visit, you can do your pre-donation reading online and cut up to 15 mins off your time!

Today, May 15th, is Peace Officers Memorial Day. We take this time to honor those in Law Enforcement who have lost their lives in the line of duty. We hold a special place in our hearts for our own Louis Pompei, who died in the line of duty on June 9, 1995. We will never forget.

In 1962, President John F. Kennedy signed a proclamation which designated May 15th as Peace Officers Memorial Day and the week in which that date falls as Police Week. We take this time to remember those we have lost and look to those who remain to carry on their legacy.

Happy Mother’s Day! We honor all of the police officers, dispatchers, and other emergency service mom's who do an amazing job of balancing a ton of responsibility at both work and home. Enjoy your day!

Chief Rosales and the men and women of the Glendora Police Department would like to thank you for coming out and making the 2018 Open House a success (despite the rain).

Two received prizes from Chick-fil-A, two received prizes from Ring Doorbell, and the grand prize winner received 4 Disney park hopper tickets. Thank you for pledging to keep our kids safe.

On the evening of Wednesday, May 02, 2018, Chief Rosales hosted the annual Glendora Police Department Awards Ceremony highlighting outstanding conduct and achievements by members of the Glendora Police Department family in the past year. Awards presented this year were the Life Saving Award, Medal of Merit, the Chief’s Outstanding Achievement Award, Unit Citation, General Employee Award of Excellence, Executive Award of Management, and Officer of the Year. This year, two new awards were added. The Timothy Crowther Good Citizen award is given to a community member who substantially assists the Glendora Police Department in the area of community relations, in which the community member contributes in an extraordinary manner to the police department. The very first Crowther award was presented to Natalie Dillon, a local loss prevention officer, for her outstanding partnership with Glendora PD in catching and prosecuting criminals. Ms. Dillon is an invaluable asset to this department. The Louis Anthony Pompei Courage Award is given to any citizen who distinguishes himself or herself by bravery while assisting a police officer and/or another member of this community; or who performs an act under emergency conditions, wherein a service is rendered that results directly in sustaining a human life. The first recipient was Mr. Rafael Alba. Mr. Alba was working as a clerk at a 7-11 market when a mentally disabled man entered his store with a knife and threatened to stab another male customer. Mr. Alba called 9-1-1 and then engaged in conversation to distract and calm the man long enough for the potential victim to leave. Officers arrived shortly after, detained the man without incident, and got him the help that he needed. Mr. Alba’s quick thinking and compassion averted possible harm to a community member and officers. The Pompei Courage award was also presented to Zachary Cadima and Lucy Daniel. A vehicle versus pedestrian traffic collision occurred and was witnessed by Zachary Cadima. Zachary immediately dialed 9-1-1 from his cell phone and relayed what he saw to dispatch. When officers arrived on scene, Zachary remained on scene and provided a very detailed account of what happened, which proved vital to the investigation. Ms. Daniel, a home care nurse was inside the home of her patient when she heard the collision. She ran out of the front door of the home and saw the injured man lying on the street. Without hesitation, she ran out into the street to help. She applied first aid to the victim until Police and Fire personnel arrived. Sadly, the victim later succumbed to his injuries, but Mrs. Daniel’s quick response and care at least gave him a fighting chance. We appreciate and commend all the award recipients and especially thank Natalie Dillon, Rafael Alba, Zachary Cadima, and Lucy Daniel for acting selflessly and assisting Glendora Police Department and the members of the City of Glendora.

Come and meet Special Olympics Gold Metalist Michael Evans, along with Spaghetti Eddie’s General Manager Teri Bainbridge tonight for the “Tip a Cop” event! We will be here until 8:30!
