Last night Officers responded to Stockdale St. and Verbena Ct. for a robbery with a knife. Officers arrived on scene and detained a possible suspect. There was an outstanding second suspect. The detained suspect was not armed and PSD Perro conducted an evidence search of the area and found the knife used in the robbery. During the investigation, Officers discovered the second suspect lived nearby and responded to his residence. Officers located the second suspect, who was a juvenile. The juvenile later confessed they committed the robbery. The adult was booked into Orange County Jail and the juvenile was booked into Juvenile Hall. Great teamwork by the Night Crew and good boy Perro! #fvpd #fountainvalleysfinest #nightcrew #graveyardshift #police #k9 #policedog #workingdogs #weownthenight

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: January 22, 2018 DON’T FUMBLE: TACKLE IMPAIRED DRIVING BEFORE THE CLOCK STARTS Kickoff on America’s favorite past time is just about ready to start. For many football fans, when it’s time for Super Bowl LII, everyone’s a fan…and Fans Don’t Let Fans Drive Drunk. The California Office of Traffic Safety, Police, Sheriff and the CHP are huddling up for a special designated driver reminder to urge football fans across the nation not to drop the ball on this issue. Impaired driving near or above the .08 BAC limit can be deadly, and even small amounts of alcohol can impair judgement to make driving unsafe. In 2016, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reported there were 10,497 fatalities in motor vehicle traffic crashes involving drunk drivers nationwide. California recorded 1,059 DUI deaths at .08 BAC or above according to the NHTSA. The Fountain Valley Police Department supports the new effort from the Office of Traffic Safety that aims to educate all drivers that “DUI Doesn’t Just Mean Booze.” Drug-impaired driving is a problem on California roadways. Like drunk driving, drugged driving is impaired driving, which means it is dangerous and illegal. Whether the drug is legally prescribed, an illicit drug or marijuana, driving while drug impaired poses a threat to the driver, vehicle passengers, and other motorists, and driving high can lead to a DUI. “Be sure to have a game plan for the night so friends and family know who the designated driver is,” said Sergeant Mike Parsons of the Fountain Valley Police Department. “We want to encourage folks to turn over their keys to a sober driver before the game begins. Impaired driving can result in serious crashes, injuries or death. If you don’t have an ‘MVP’ to make sure folks get home safely, consider other ride options.” There are many other ways to ensure a safe ride home besides relying on a friend. The OTS DDVIP app is now available for free download on iOS and Android devices. The app offers enhanced features, allowing users to search all participating bars and restaurants throughout California. Additionally, the app users can easily order a sober ride from Uber, Lyft or Curb. For Super Bowl weekend, be a team player and help keep impaired drivers from getting behind the wheel. Don’t fumble! Designate your sober driver before the big game begins. And remember: Fans Don’t Let Fans Drive Drunk.

Yes, that’s a rocket launcher. No, it wasn’t functional. Our K9 Officer stopped a vehicle @ Warner/Magnolia for a traffic violation. During the stop PSD Figo alerted on the vehicle and Officers searched it. Officers found narcotics, narcotics paraphernalia, a billy club, a spent rocket launcher tube, and an assortment of firearms. The driver was arrested and booked into Orange County Jail for narcotics sales and other charges. #fvpd #fountainvalleysfinest #k9 #policek9 #k9unit #k9handler #gunsoffthestreets #orangecounty

Be careful! A couple of safety tips for driving in the rain.... 1. Drive slower as your reaction time is hindered by the rain. 2. Be alert. Watch for pedestrians who have their head down and aren't paying attention as they are hurrying to their destination. 3. Turn on your headlights.

Goodbye 2017, hello 2018! FVPD wishes everyone a safe and happy New Year!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE December 26, 2017 FATAL TRAFFIC COLLISION On Tuesday, December 26, 2017, at 5:34 A.M., Fountain Valley Police Officers responded to a fatal vehicle vs. pedestrian traffic collision on Warner Avenue west of Euclid Street.
