Never a dull night - Last night we received a call that someone was yelling for help. The caller reported that the person was possibly on the roof of La Curaçao. So what do we do when there are no helicopters available to help...we call our friends over at LACOFD. Senior Officers Larios and Duran cautiously climbed up the ladder truck and made their way onto the roof. No victims were located and the location checked ok. Thanks for the help #LACOFD.

This week is dedicated to public safety dispatchers who aid in providing 9-1-1 emergency assistance across the country. The term "9-1-1" is often associated with rapid emergency response, poise under pressure, aid and compassion in times of distress, and critical decision-making within seconds. Many people do not stop to think about these seemingly nameless, faceless individuals until they experience an actual emergency themselves. These professionals make the difference between life and death in many instances. Across the nation, 9-1-1 dispatchers will celebrate National Public Safety Telecommunicators' Week. The United States Congress designated the second full week in April as a time to honor all 9-1-1 dispatchers who answer the calls for help and provide emergency assistance to the public and emergency public safety responders. Special thanks to La Monaraca Bakery for providing some delicious treats for our dispatchers this morning. #nationalpublicsafetytelecommunicatorsweek

UPDATE - PURSUIT SUSPECT SENTENCED http://da.lacounty.gov/media/news/man-sentenced-prison-pursuit-ended-metro-tunnel

351 Arrested so far in Statewide Underage Drinking Enforcement Operation ABC and over 70 Local Law Enforcement Agencies Team Up to Increase Public Safety and Protect Youth (California) - Agents from the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) and Officers from over 70 local Police and Sheriff’s Departments have arrested or cited 351 individuals during a statewide underage drinking enforcement operation designed to create awareness to the problem of underage drinking and also protect California’s youth while increasing public safety. The goal of the ongoing operation is to raise awareness about the dangers of underage drinking and also make it clear to any adults that buy alcohol for minors that there are serious consequences. “Unfortunately over 4,000 young people die in alcohol-related tragedies every year in this country,” said ABC Acting Director Jacob Appelsmith. “This collaborative effort among California peace officers creates awareness to underage drinking issues, increases public safety for communities and also boosts protections for California’s young people.” The operation so far has resulted in citations for 277 individuals who allegedly furnished alcoholic beverages to minors, 26 other individuals have been cited for open containers and 48 others have been cited or taken into custody for various crimes such as outstanding warrants, illegal drugs, public drunkenness or DUI. The operation is an effort to build safer and stronger communities by holding individuals accountable for illegal activity that creates harm. ABC agents and local law enforcement conducted a program called the “Decoy Shoulder Tap Operation”. Under the program, a minor under the direct supervision of a peace officer will stand outside a liquor or convenience store and ask patrons to buy them alcohol. The minor indicates in some way he or she is underage and cannot purchase the alcohol. If the adults agree, and purchase alcohol for the minor, officers then arrest and cite them for furnishing alcohol to the minor. The penalty for furnishing alcohol to a minor is a minimum $1000 fine and 24 hours of community service. The program is intended to reduce the availability of alcohol to minors. Many of today’s local operations were funded by the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control through the Department’s Grant Assistance Program (GAP) and some were funded by the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). ABC protects communities through excellence in education and by administering prevention and enforcement programs designed to increase compliance with California’s alcoholic beverage laws. ABC’s mission is to provide the highest level of service and public safety through licensing, education and enforcement. To learn more about ABC programs that help protect communities, prevent alcohol-related harm and potentially save lives visit https://www.abc.ca.gov/programs/programs_PE.html. ABC is a Department of the Business, Consumer Services and Housing Agency. During this statewide operation, Huntington Park officers arrested two individuals for furnishing alcohol to minors.

On Monday (2-26-18), the Southeast Regional Mental Health Evaluataion Team (SERMET) which is comprised of officers from these police departements: Huntington Park, Bell, Bell Gardens, Southgate and Vernon, conducted another Homeless Outreach day. They are assisted by outside agencies that specialize in mental health, homeless placement/housing, addiciton services, and wound treatment. Agencies such as LAHSA, PATH, DMH, and HYC assist with the officers. The team of all these people working together were able to locate 6 homeless encampments in the local areas. 26 homeless were contacted and 21 volunteered to receive assistance. 21 were given vouchers for shelter, they received DMV vouchers to assist them with ID's and adresses, some received psychological evaluations and were referred for assistance, some received free treatement for addiction, and 2 were given on site medical help for wound care. This video shows one portion of one encampment we encountered. Once the homeless were assisted, a path to cleaning these areas up is worked on with they city.

Last week our mental health / homeless services officer worked diligently on addressing the cleanliness of the city. Numerous local businesses owners, the railroad company, and our officer worked together to address the growing homeless encampments on the railroad right of way. Our officer not only helps clean the area, he also brings county services along to assist any homeless person that needs help with assistance and shelter. We understand the need to balance the needs of the communities cleanliness with the ability to provide assistance to those in need.
