Today our newest employee, Officer Lego, was sworn in by Captain Blair. Although Officer Lego has given us some concerns as to his ability to properly perform the duties of a Tustin Police Officer, we will be giving him a chance under the watchful eye of his Field Training Officer, Officer Sanchez. Officer Lego's first shift will start tomorrow on Halloween and we hope he can handle the pressure. If you would like to follow him on his first day, be sure to check out our page tomorrow and check out his progress.

Did you know... Every year 41 million children age 5 to 14 go trick-or-treating. Read these easy-to-follow tips for a safe Halloween: - Adults should always accompany children when trick-or-treating. - Wear light-colored clothing or reflective tape on costumes. - Avoid walking while wearing a mask. - Only cross streets at corners and use a flashlight. - Only visit homes with the porch light on. - Use a light stick instead of a candle. Candles and pumpkins can create a fire hazard. - Accept treats at the door and never go in a stranger's house. - Adults should always inspect candy before children eat it. - Never eat candy that appears previously opened or is not in its original packaging. - Lastly... "If you see something, say something." To report crimes in progress or suspicious activity on Halloween, call Tustin PD Dispatch 714-573-3225.
