An outstanding success story as a result of a collaboration between Huntington Park SERMET (Southeast Regional Mental Health Evaluation Team), LAHSA (LA County Homeless Services Authority and DMH (Department of Mental Health). Approximately two months ago, a large homeless encampment had taken root in an abandoned business lot in the city. Our SERMET officers soon realized it was a haven for criminal activity and drug abuse, on top of terrible living conditions. The three above mentioned entities along with officers and city employees cleaned up the encampment area. With the help of LAHSA, SERMET and DMH, the homeless living in the lot were offered services and shelter. This is Bernice (pictured on the right), she was living on the streets for many years due to a substance abuse problem. She was one of the women living in the encampment. Due to the help provided by our department and the County homeless services, she has been assigned a case worker. She is now 50 days clean, is currently employed, and is petitioning to regain custody of her son.

In recognition of the 50th Anniversary of Officer Robert H. Keller’s passing, the Department’s personnel wear their Class A uniform, with mourning band, as a sign of respect and remembrance of his service. On October 5, 1967, Officer Robert H. Keller responded to a silent alarm call at a dress shop on Pacific Boulevard. There he met with a security officer from an alarm company and together they entered the store. Once inside the men confronted an armed suspect, who opened fire from an ambush position. A gun battle ensued and approximately twelve rounds were exchanged between the suspect and Officer Keller. The suspect ran from the store but a trail of blood indicated that at least one of Officer Keller's bullets struck the suspect. Officer Keller sustained a gunshot wound to the chest and succumbed to his injuries. Officer Robert Keller’s killer was never identified, despite an intense manhunt for the suspect. #neverforget #inthelineofduty #HPPD

**Loaded Firearm Recovered** Excellent job by Day Watch patrol officers. Today while patrolling a parking lot known to be a congregation point for gang members, taggers and car thieves, our officers discovered suspicious activity around a parked vehicle. A male adult subject was detained and a loaded firearm, methamphetamine and a smoking pipe were recovered. The suspect was arrested and taken to jail. Another unregistered gun, and dangerous narcotics taken off the streets by diligent officers.

On August 31, Huntington Park Officers, Parking Enforcement, Police Volunteers, along with California Highway Patrol conducted a DUI checkpoint within the city. It was a great success. Trained screeners on the vehicle check line were able to identify symptoms of alcohol and drug intoxication. These observations were used to arrest for driving while intoxicated. Multiple unlicensed drivers were also contacted and issued citations. Our keen officers even located, and arrested a driver for an outstanding warrant. These officers worked diligently until 4am trying to keep the streets of Huntington Park safe from DUI drivers. Remember alcohol and drug intoxication are the same when it comes to operating a motor vehicle. Also, always call 911 if you observe a possible intoxicated driver and request police assistance. Lets keep the community safe from DUI drivers together.

The Huntington Park Police Department would like to remind you not to drive impaired. The safety of our community is of utmost importance.

Please join us in welcoming our newest police officer to the department, Officer Martin Rodriguez. Officer Rodriguez graduated this afternoon from the Rio Hondo Police Academy - Class 204. Officer Rodriguez worked as a Police Cadet with our agency before being selected to become a sworn officer.

Huntington Park Police Department Receive Grant to Fight Alcohol-related Crime City will receive $35,000 to Reduce Alcohol Related Problems Huntington Park Police Chief Cosme Lozano announced today that the Police Department has been awarded a $35,000 grant from the California Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) to battle alcohol-related crime. “This is important to the city in order to increase protection for youth and to shut down problem locations that have contributed to an increase in crime,” Lozano said. The grant is one of 52 awarded in California to local law enforcement agencies through ABC’s Grant Assistance Program (GAP). The grants strengthen local law enforcement efforts by combining the efforts of local police officers and ABC agents. ABC agents have expertise in alcoholic beverage laws and can help communities reduce alcohol-related problems. “The program improves the quality of life in neighborhoods,” said ABC Director Jacob Applesmith. “We’ve seen a real difference in the communities where the grant program resources have been invested.” The GAP Program was created in 1995 to strengthen partnerships between ABC and local law enforcement agencies. The program is designed to put bad operators out of business, keep alcohol away from minors and bring penalties such as fines, suspensions or revocations against businesses that violate the law. The funds will be used to reduce the number of alcoholic beverage sales to minors, obviously intoxicated patrons, illegal solicitations of alcohol, and other criminal activities such as the sale and possession of illegal drugs. The GAP Program has distributed over $20 million to local law enforcement to combat alcohol-related crime. ABC is a Department of the Business, Consumer Services and Housing Agency.
