Some highlights from this month’s Women’s Self Defense Class. Kudos to first time instructor, Officer Giron, for taking some licks in the Red Man suit #sppd #selfdefense #communitypolicing #redmansuit #punch #kick

Officers assigned to the roving DUI patrol were busy Halloween night. Unfortunately, even one arrest is one too many. Please remember to celebrate responsibly and use a designated driver, it’s not worth it.

The South Pasadena Police Department will employ a multi-officer D.U.I. saturation patrol tonight (Halloween). This team in addition to our standard patrol officers will take to the streets in an effort to be a high visibility deterrence to drinking and driving. Remember, buzzed driving is drunk driving. Don't risk it, have fun, but be safe.

Patrol cars won’t be necessary, Officer Borrello will be in service tonight on this nifty broom #vroombroom #wickedwitchofsouthpas #nicehat #halloween #sppd PC: Sugar Mynt Gallery

Happy Halloween! Be safe tonight, always go out in groups, watch out for traffic and don’t take unwrapped candy #Halloween #sppd #safety #spooky #candy

Monterey Road between Arroyo Verde and Oak Hill Avenue is closed due to a water main break. Public Works is on scene, please avoid the area until further notice, thank you.

We are hiring Academy Graduates and Lateral Officers, please apply on the city website!

Our #tbt is a photo of Officer Escobedo as a newer officer. He retired this week after 22 years of dedicated service. As one of the most respected veterans in the department, Officer Escobedo will be missed around the station and in the community. Good luck, sir, as you move onto greener pastures #sppd #183 #retirement

Upcoming DUI Patrol South Pasadena, CA— Halloween is a time for making memories, not causing nightmares. This Halloween, South Pasadena Police Department is reminding Halloween partiers that Buzzed Driving is Drunk Driving. Stay safe – and help keep others safe – by refraining from impaired driving as a DUI Doesn’t Just Mean Booze. In 2015, there were 55 people killed nationwide in drunk-driving-related crashes and others were killed by drugged impaired drivers. If your Halloween celebrating involves alcohol, marijuana or other drugs, it’s imperative that you make a plan to get home without getting behind the wheel. On 10-30-2017, between the hours of 9:00 p.m. and 3:00 a.m., officers will be conducting a D.U.I. saturation patrol throughout the city, which will be the first of many D.U.I. patrols throughout the upcoming year. Officers will be looking for signs of alcohol and/or drug impairment. When possible, specially trained officers will be available to evaluate those suspected of drug-impaired driving, which now accounts for a growing number of impaired driving crashes. Everyone should be mindful that when taking medication – whether prescription, over-the-counter or marijuana – drinking even small amounts of alcohol can greatly intensify the impairment affects. It is illegal to drive with a BAC of .08 or higher and .05 or more for those under 21. In 2015, there were 10,265 people killed in alcohol impaired related crashes nationwide. Drug impaired and drug/alcohol combination crashes are rising and now with marijuana use legal, these stats are becoming a significant factor in deaths and injuries on California roadways. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 45 percent of all people killed in motor vehicle crashes on Halloween night in recent years were in crashes involving an alcohol impaired driver nationwide. Children and parents out trick-or-treating are also at risk, as 36 percent of fatal pedestrian crashes on Halloween night involved drunk drivers. This Halloween and every day, drivers need to remember that it is never okay to drive buzzed by alcohol, marijuana, medication or illicit drugs. No matter what, designate a sober driver or plan to use a ride share or public transportation to get home safely. Download the OTS Designated Driver free mobile app, “DDVIP,” which helps find nearby bars and restaurants that feature free incentives for the designated sober driver, from free non-alcoholic drinks to free appetizers and more. The feature-packed app even has social media tie-ins and even a tab for the non-DD to call Uber, Lyft or Curb. Funding for this DUI operation is provided to South Pasadena Police Department by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, reminding everyone to ‘Report Drunk Driver – Call 9-1-1’.

On Monday, October 16, 2017, at approximately 4:15 pm, officers received a 911 call stating a person had just stolen a package from their front porch. The resident relayed the suspect's description and told police the whole incident was captured on their doorbell surveillance system. Officers responded to the area of Monterey Road and Brent Avenue and detained a women matching the description from the resident's cameras. The woman, identified as a 23 year old Pasadena resident was found to be in possession of four separate mail packages from four different South Pasadena residences. The suspect was arrested for the mail theft. With the holiday season approaching, the frequency of these types of theft will rise. Please remember, "If you see something, say something."

We were honored to provide an escort to a convoy of retired military vehicles coming through the city along Route 66. Hosted by the Military Vehicle Preservation Association, the convoy started in Chicago and will conclude the 2,400 mile journey in Santa Monica #historyinmotion #veterans #military #convoy #sppd

If you know anyone that was affected, please share this with them.

Great job by Team South Pasadena, who rose to the challenge during Stair Climb Los Angeles 2017. Participants climbed 1,664 stairs (75 Stories!) in the US Bank Tower to raise money for the YMCA's community programs. Way to represent our department and our city! #sppd #southpasadena #ymca #usbanktower #stairclimb #risetothechallenge #elevatorsareforwimps

We participated in a mutual aid readiness exercise with the Alhambra, San Gabriel, Monterey Park and San Marino Police Departments. These drills ensure that all on duty officers can respond quickly to another city in the event of a major emergency #sppd #apd #sgpd #mppd #smpd #areac #partnership

Tonight, the city council recognized some of our sergeants and officers who responded to the call for assistance to help the City of Burbank during the La Tuna Fire #sppd #partnership
