The recent act of violence in Las Vegas has affected many members of our community. On Friday, October 13, from 1:00 - 3:00 PM, the Town of Mammoth Lakes and the Mammoth Lakes Police Department will be providing the services of a licensed therapist in a group setting to offer coping techniques and strategies. This event is open to any member of our community.

The Mammoth Lakes Police Department understands that many in the community could use assistance coping in response to the mass shooting in Las Vegas. Traumatic events can impact people who were not directly involved, but who may have known a victim or seen coverage of the event. The Town of Mammoth Lakes and the Mammoth Lakes Police Department will be providing the services of a licensed therapist in a group setting to offer members of the community coping techniques and strategies. There will also be the opportunity for discussion and for questions. This event is open to any member of our community. In order to accommodate everyone, the location may be moved depending on response.

Some of us have had bets going over the past 10 years about if/when we'd ever get a new station. Prepare to pony up. Join us for the GRAND OPENING of the NEW STATION on Monday, October 16th, from 4 – 6 PM. Some of the officers here still don’t believe we’re moving in so come share in their disbelief. This family-friendly event is also hosted by the Mono County Superior Courthouse and features: - Tours of the new station and the courthouse - Police vehicles on display - Free BBQ and refreshments - 'Ask a Judge' panel discussion where Mono County Superior Court judges explain how they do their jobs - 'Ask Law Enforcement' panel discussion with participants from the Mammoth Lakes Police Department, Mono County Sheriff's Department, California Highway Patrol, and Mono County Probation - 'Ask a Lawyer' panel discussion with the District Attorney's office, Mono County Counsel's office, and public defenders - Information tables where you can find out about county health and social services, services available for victims of domestic violence, and speak to a free attorney provided by the court that can help you navigate your divorce and family law case matters

Make sure your child is in the right seat the right way! We're hosting a car seat safety check event at the Mammoth Lakes Police Department (568 Old Mammoth Road) from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM this Saturday, September 23, 2017. The event is part of Child Passenger Safety Week, a national initiative which runs from September 17 – 23, 2017, where officers from the Mammoth Lakes Police Department and CHP - Bishop will ensure each car seat meets federal safety guidelines, is properly installed, and educate parents and caregivers on how to choose the correct car seat. The event is free and no appointments are necessary. As of January 1, 2017, California requires that children under 2 years old must be rear-facing unless they weigh 40 pounds or more, or are at least 40 inches tall. Children under 8 years old must be buckled into a car seat or booster in the back seat. Children age 8 or older, or who are 4’9” or taller, may use the vehicle seat belt if it fits properly with the lap belt low on the hips, touching the upper thighs, and the shoulder belt crossing the center of the chest. If children are not tall enough for proper belt fit, they must ride in a booster or car seat.

Seconding this!

On August 17, 2017, the Mammoth Lakes Police Department and the Mono County Investigative Unit (MCIU) executed a search warrant for child endangerment in the 100 block of Mono Street. During the course of the search, officers located items in the garage of the home that were consistent with equipment that was being used to illegally convert a controlled substance by chemical extraction. These items included beakers, utensils, and chemicals. The equipment was subsequently dismantled to ensure there was no danger to the community. An occupant of the residence, Marisa Rose Graef, was arrested. Graef was transported to the Mono County Jail and booked on the following charges: 1 felony count of 1203.2 PC: Probation Violation; 1 misdemeanor count of 11364(A) - Possession of Controlled Substance Paraphernalia; 1 felony count of 11379.4 HS - Manufacturing of a Controlled Substance; 1 misdemeanor count of 273(A) PC - Child Endangerment; 1 misdemeanor count of 11350(A) HS - Possession of a Controlled Substance; 1 misdemeanor count of 11377(A) HS - Possession of a Controlled Substance

The next Town of Mammoth Lakes CERT training academy is scheduled for October 21, 28, and November 4. Come to the CERT 'Eat & Greet' to learn more about the organization and the upcoming academy. Emergency responders do their best to respond as quickly as possible, but it is also the responsibility of individual citizens to learn how to protect themselves, their loved ones, and their communities. The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program educates people about disaster preparedness and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. CERT volunteers receive free training through a basic 21-hour course. Equipment, materials, and lunches are provided. Get involved and help build a more resilient community.

Glad to be of service, Mammoth Fun Shop. Heal up quick, Bigfoot! #JusticeForBigfoot

Three things to take away here: 1. All fireworks are prohibited in the Town of Mammoth Lakes, along with non-incorporated areas of Mono County, the Inyo National Forest (INF) and Bureau of Land Management (BLM) lands. There is a zero tolerance policy with respect to the possession and use of fireworks that will be strictly enforced. 2. Don’t operate a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs. 3. Good luck getting that Katy Perry song out of your head now. Happy Independence Day!


** UPDATE – June 20, 2017 - Missing person Hal Eastman has been located in San Bernardino. **

Let’s begin this post by acknowledging that we’re about to raise a controversial topic, along with a request to keep the comments respectful. And away we go... As much as we’d like our pups to roam freely like their furry ancestors of yore, due to the increasing number of dog-related incidents, this is a reminder that the Town of Mammoth Lakes has several ordinances to keep both animals and the public safe. First, you must leash your dog if you’re on public streets and/or public areas (MLTO 6.12.210). Citations will be issued for dog owners in violation of this (and a complimentary slip leash for first offenders). If you’re on private property, your dog must be in your control and secured via chain, rope, leash and/or confined via fencing. Second, if you live within the Town of Mammoth Lakes and your dog is over the age of six months, you must procure an annual dog license (MLTO 6.12.010). Conveniently, we have our dog licensing clinic tomorrow from 2-3:30 PM where you can purchase the required dog license and discounted vaccinations. We’re aware that there are many topics surrounding dog ownership in the TOML Municipal Code but let’s keep this short and semi-sweet. Your dog is your responsibility and you are liable for their actions. Please behave appropriately and neighborly to your fellow townspeople and leash your dog because it’s the law.

We're looking for a Lieutenant to join our department. The ideal candidate will be team-oriented and committed to the future direction of our organization and community. A strong moral character and the highest level of integrity is paramount. For more information, click the link below.

Today is one of our favorite holidays - National Donut Day! Tomorrow is another favorite - the Town of Mammoth Lakes Town Clean-Up Day. Beginning at 8 AM on Saturday, June 3rd, work off today's donut(s) and clean up around your home and apartment building using the orange bag left at your door - or visit the TOML office or Mammoth Disposal Transfer Station for extras while supplies last. Then drop off the filled bags at a Clean-Up Day Station: 407 Manzanita, Mammoth Disposal in the Industrial Park, the Community Center at 1000 Forest Trail, or Mammoth Creek Park on Old Mammoth Road. Do not leave bags on the side of the road as they will not be picked up. Take this opportunity to drop off that unwanted TV or refrigerator for FREE at the Mammoth Disposal Transfer Station (Saturday, June 3rd only). Because sometimes one man's junk is still just junk...

On Saturday, June 17, from 2:00 to 3:30 PM, we will be renewing TOML dog licenses for the upcoming fiscal year and offering discounted vaccinations and microchipping at our annual Dog Licensing Clinic in the MLPD parking lot. California law requires all dogs over the age of 6 months to be licensed and vaccinated against rabies. If you live within the limits of the Town of Mammoth Lakes, you are required to license your dog. If your dog does not need a rabies update, you may purchase just the required license: $20 if your animal is spayed/neutered; $50 if they're unaltered. Please bring proof of spay/neuter and current rabies vaccination (if applicable). Discounted microchipping will also be available for $10. If you are paying by check and will be purchasing a license and vaccinations, please remember that you will be paying two separate bills. You may now purchase 2017-18 TOML dog licenses at the MLPD Business Office. Please bring proof of spay/neuter and current vaccinations.
