DUI CHECK POINT THIS WEEKEND #SoGate PD Traffic Unit will be conducting a DUI check point on April 14th in the 5000 block of Fireatone Blvd. It will operate between 7pm and 1:30am. #impaireddriving #MADD

It's National Telecommunicators Week and for that we would like to send our thanks and show appreciation for all of our South Gate Police Department Dispatchers and all of the emergency responder dispatchers who are instrumental in the highest level of public safety. The work you do does not go unnoticed.

ADDITIONAL TRAFFIC ENFORCEMENT AND DUI CHECKPOINT THIS WEEK Distracted driving is a serious safety challenge and 10 years after "hands-free" became law, it is still responsible for many traffic collisions. On Wednesday and Thursday, March 28th & 29th, #SoGate police will deploy additional traffic officers to enforce distracted driving laws throughout the city. On Friday, March 30th #SoGate Police Traffic Unit will conduct a DUI/Drivers License Checkpoint in the 5000 block of Firestone Blvd between 7pm-1:30am.

The South Gate Police Department would like to welcome Sean Palos as our new Crime Prevention Specialist. Sean is looking forward to working with members of our community and being invited to your next Neighborhood Watch meeting. He can be contacted via email at or by phone at 323-563-5465.

Our thoughts and prayers are with our brothers and sisters from #pomonapd. #SGPD officers visited to pay our respects to the fallen officer and wish a speedy recovery to the surviving officer.

Our heart goes out to the #pomonapolice department and we pray for the speedy recovery of the second officer. #thinblueline

In recent years, school violence has been on the rise. Several days ago, Parkland, Florida suffered a senseless tragedy. Since then, there have been several incidents of online threats of violence to school campuses in several different Southern California schools. Several of our surrounding communities have had people post threats of violence on social media or allegedly make threats which are overheard by students. These incidents have proven to be non-credible or the person making the comments was stating it to emphasis a position or stand on a political topic. Whatever the reason for making these types of comments is irrelevant. Simply put; this type of behavior will not be tolerated, any posting on social media will be investigated and those responsible could be arrested. We take this seriously and want to ensure a safe and positive learning environment for our youth. If you know or hear about any threat of violence in your community, please say something. #ifyouseesomethingsaysomething

Officers attempted to stop the suspect vehicle and it stopped a short distance away. Three suspects were arrested; a female adult and two male juvenile’s. Officers searched the suspect vehicle and located gloves, bandanas, cash and cigarettes taken during the robbery.

On Wednesday, December 13, 2017, the case was presented to the LA County DA’s office and all were charged with robbery charges.
