Thank you to the awesome kids at Vision School for the great pictures and artwork. We truly appreciate our community contacts and love the kids at our schools! #kidsrock

Foul play is not suspected at this time. As more storms approach this season, please refrain from entering flood control areas--they are dangerous and unpredictable. Thank you and stay safe.

RAIN TIP-Windshield wipers on = Headlights on, it's the law.

RAINY CONDITIONS - Rain is expected in the forecast the next few days. The roads will be very slick due to this being the first rain we've experienced in a while. Please allow yourself extra time to reach your destination and remain focused on the road. Many of the schools are also back in session today. Please expect more vehicles, bicyclists, and pedestrians on the roads. We want everyone to arrive safely!

PORCH PIRATE GETS HOOKED-Yesterday, Officer Booth was on patrol on Cloverdale St. and saw a suspicious subject near a vehicle. He made contact with the subject and discovered the man had multiple stolen packages in his car from victims in the neighborhood. The packages were returned to the victims. The suspect was arrested. Good eye Officer Booth!

A special thank you to OC Communications, Motorola, and BearCom for their expertise and professionalism during this project. We’d also like to thank our dispatchers for continuing to work through emergencies with a smile despite all the noise and distractions today. True professionals!

AGENCY ASSIST WESTMINSTER EAST OF BOLSA CHICA - Seal Beach PD was in pursuit of a stolen vehicle that went into our city this afternoon. Officer Jezulin observed the suspect run from the vehicle and apprehended him a short distance away. The suspect was taken into custody. No injuries to the officer or suspect. Fun fact - Officer Jezulin was in our most recent "Caption This" post standing with a child's bicycle at our Shop with a Cop Event.

Another wonderful Shop with a Cop event at our local Walmart. A big thanks to the Westminster Police Officers' Association (WPOA) for organizing this event along with the Fountain Valley Police.

REMINDER, See you there!

Our Westminster Police Explorers were recognized by the City Council for their hard work and effort in 2017. Our explorers volunteered over 4000 hours of their time to work city events helping alleviate staffing costs that would have to be filled by paid city personnel. They also were recognized for their performance in a recent explorer competition they participated in against 50 other law enforcement explorer teams in which they won a 1st Place, 2nd Place and 5th Place trophy in various events they trained for. Congratulations to our Westminster Police Explorers!!
