Santa called and asked if the Beaumont Police Department could assist him with a delivery this morning. He had heard about a special family that needed some help this holiday season, so officers loaded up some gifts and off they went! Santa wanted to make sure these great boys would have something special to open on Christmas morning, so BPD made sure we got the presents to them safe and sound! Lots of smiles and Christmas cheer for this sweet family for the holidays.

While getting together with friends and family for the holidays don't drink and drive. Plan ahead so you and your loved ones can enjoy the holidays safe and sober!

***Update to this story. All of the animals that were taken in by Animal Control have all been placed with families or rescues. Thank you to everyone who shared the story and helped to get all of these animals on their way to permanent, loving, fur-ever, homes! Dogs in Need of Homes On Tuesday, December 20, 2017, Beaumont Animal Control was dispatched to a call in the 1200 block of Beaumont Avenue to check on the welfare of an animal in that location. While Animal Control Officers were out at the location they observed two dogs that were running loose. ACO attempted to assist the dogs, but the dogs were able to get away and ran back to a residence on Beaumont Avenue. Animal Control Officers made contact at that residence and found a family living in the home with approximately 27 dogs and 3 cats. Due to the condition of the home, the amount of animals living in the home and the children that were also located, Animal Control Officers requested the assistance of Beaumont Police Officers to conduct an investigation into the welfare of the family. While at the location officers determined that four adults and four children were residing in the home, the ages of the children ranged from 3 to 14 years of age. The conditions of the home were so poor that the children, animals and adults had been living with animal feces and urine throughout, including their sleeping and eating areas, creating a health and safety hazard for everyone, especially the children. Beaumont Police Department requested the assistance of Child Protective Services (CPS) to assess the safety of the children. The owner of the dogs agreed to sign over all of the animals to the Animal Control Officers and all 27 dogs and 3 cats were transported to the Ramona Humane Society for adoption. Due to the overwhelming amount of animals that were impounded and received by Ramona Humane-Society, we would like to ask that any residents who might have room in their hearts and homes to open up to a new pet, would consider adopting one of these animals and giving them a new home for the holidays. For information on how to help or adopt one of the animals impounded yesterday, please contact the Ramona Humane Society directly by dialing 951-654-8002.

Arrest: Suspicious Person During the late night hours Officers of the Beaumont Police Department responded to a suspicious person call in a residential area of Beaumont. Callers reported a suspect in the 1500 block of Amaryllis who was seen removing Christmas lights and decorations from residents who worked hard to set up Christmas displays for all the children of Beaumont to enjoy. Residents confronted the suspect who dropped the stolen goods, but claimed he would be back to steal Christmas cheer! The suspect, knowing that his attack had failed to remove the resident’s Christmas spirit, instead concocted a plan to steal all of their presents while they were sleeping. The suspect created a Santa suit and sleigh with his own dog Max as a "reindeer". Dispatchers received calls that the suspect was seen flying around Beaumont, stealing all of the Beaumont resident’s Christmas gifts. Officers set up a perimeter and with the assistance of 40 King, and K9 Mila; the suspect was located and apprehended without incident. All property was returned to the Beaumont residents and Christmas was saved. The suspect was booked into jail and his dog Max was taken into custody by Animal Control. Beaumont Police Department saved Christmas! Attached is a booking photo of the suspect.

Tomorrow! Don’t forget! The City Council recently adopted new fees for animal licensing. These fees will go into effect as of January 7, 2018. In an effort to assist residents who have not yet licensed their animals, the Animal Control Services Division will be holding a licensing and microchipping clinic on Saturday, December 16, 2017, from 9am-12pm. This clinic will NOT be offering low-cost vaccinations, this event is just to license and microchip your animal. If your animal has a current rabies vaccination, is spayed/neutered and microchipped, you are eligible to receive a lifetime license. This license is $8.00 and valid for the life of your pet, provided you keep your rabies vaccination updated. Hurry and get your animal licensed now to avoid further fees and penalties for not having a licensed animal. Beaumont Animal Control serves the cities of Banning, Beaumont and Calimesa.

Here's a fun video of our 2017 Shop with a Cop event. This is a great program where the department and officers give back to the community and to some very deserving kids. Enjoy!

Officers immediately responded to the location and attempted to locate the subject and vehicle, however they were unable to contact anyone matching the description.

STRONG WIND WARNING WIND Warnings and TIPS from Southern California Edison: Strong and Prolonged Santa Ana Winds to Blow Through SoCal SCE has additional crews on standby, reminds customers to never approach or touch downed power lines and call 911. Strong Santa Ana winds with gusts up to 70 mph will blow through Southern California starting today and are expected to last several days before subsiding later this week. The National Weather Service is calling this the “strongest and longest duration Santa Ana wind event we have seen so far this season” and has also issued Red Flag warnings for most counties in Southern California. High winds can sometimes damage power lines and equipment if hit by flying and falling debris. SCE reminds its customers to never approach or touch a downed power line or dangling wire or anything in contact with them — even if it appears not to be live — and to call 911 immediately. Traffic signals may be out so approach those intersections as four-way stops. “We will be closely monitoring the wind conditions this week and SCE has crews ready to respond in case of any additional outages or possible downed wires,” said Jim Cherrie, SCE director of Grid Operations. “We want to make sure we are ahead of this Santa Ana event.” If power outages occur due to high winds, the extreme conditions may necessitate longer restoration times. When the National Weather Service calls for Red Flag warnings, disconnected electric circuits will not be automatically re-energized by SCE in high-fire areas. Instead, SCE will physically patrol and inspect the lines before they are re-energized. SCE is currently reviewing scheduled maintenance outages in areas that may be affected by high winds and Red Flag warnings this week. During extreme weather, SCE looks at maintenance outages on a case-by-case basis and factors such as public safety and reliability needs are considered. Customers may report or inquire about outages at 800-611-1911 and get the latest information using the SCE outages app at sce.com/outages. Customers can also get the latest information by visiting www.sce.com/staysafe or at twitter.com/sce and facebook.com/sce. SCE Safety Tips in High-Wind Conditions: • Remember to check emergency supplies to be sure you have a battery-operated radio, a flashlight and fresh batteries. Do not use candles for lighting as they pose a fire hazard. • If you’re in a vehicle with a fallen power line on it, stay in the vehicle and remain calm until help arrives. It is OK to use your cellphone to call 911. If you must leave the vehicle, remember to exit away from downed power lines and exit by jumping from the vehicle and landing with both feet together. You must not touch the vehicle and the ground at the same time. Then proceed away from the vehicle by shuffling and not picking up your feet until you are several yards away. • Water and electricity don’t mix. Water is an excellent conductor of electricity. Do not step in or enter any water that a downed power line may be touching. • If you use a generator, place it outdoors and plug individual appliances directly into it, using a heavy-duty extension cord. Connecting generators directly to household circuits creates “backfeed,” which is dangerous to repair crews. Please consult the manufacturer’s manual for operating the generator. • Do not use any equipment inside that is designed for outdoor heating or cooking. Such equipment can emit carbon monoxide and other toxic gases. https://www.insideedison.com/stories/strong-and-prolonged-santa-ana-winds-to-blow-through-socal

High winds are expected in the Pass Area throughout the week. The fire danger is high along with the possibility of downed trees and power lines. To report issues throughout the city you can contact our non-emergency line at 951-769-8500.
