BEAUMONT POLICE DEPARTMENT PARTNERS WITH ALTERNATIVES TO DOMESTIC VIOLENCE (ADV) Beaumont, CA – The Beaumont Police Department has collaborated with Alternatives to Domestic Violence in a joint effort to provide victims of domestic violence resources that will help end the cycle of violence. Domestic violence is an “epidemic of major proportions” according to the U.S. Surgeon General. It is the major cause of injury to women in the United States, more common than muggings, auto accidents, and rape combined. Domestic violence is also a crime, and is a major factor in other community problems such as homelessness, unemployment, and poverty. In an effort to reduce these crimes, the Beaumont Police Department’s partnership with ADV is aimed at helping victims of domestic violence seek much needed services such as shelter, crisis counseling, advocacy, victim support groups, male victims support groups, referrals, assistance with temporary restraining orders and anger management groups. An ADV Advocate is available by appointment to residents of the Beaumont area one day at week at the Albert A. Chatigny Sr. Community Recreational Center, located at 1310 Oak Valley Parkway in Beaumont. To make an appointment, contact Priscella Garcia at 951-320-1370. Assistance is also available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year through their crisis hotline at 1-800-339-SAFE (7233). For more information about this program you can also visit alternativestodv.org or contact the Beaumont Police Department at 951-769-8500.

Officers and fire personnel responded to find a detached garage engulfed in flames and smoke. No injuries were reported. On Wednesday, May 16, 2018, at 7:36am, officers were dispatched to the 900 block of Hardwick Avenue after a concerned citizen reported seeing a vehicle pull up to a residence, get out of the vehicle and knock on a resident’s door. Officers responded to the area and located the vehicle, which was reported stolen out of the City of Moreno Valley. Officers conducted a traffic stop and took four individuals into custody. The driver of the vehicle, a juvenile, was arrested for possession of a stolen vehicle. The three other occupants including one juvenile and two adults were released. This is another great example of citizens keeping an eye out in the community and reporting suspicious activity. The Beaumont Police Department appreciates the partnership we have with our community members and continues to encourage our citizens to report suspicious activity by contacting our non-emergency line at 951-769-8500.

We honor this week by thanking our officers for all that they do for our community and remembering those that have fallen in the line of duty.

Arrest: Residential Burglary On Tuesday, May 8, 2018, the Beaumont Police Department responded to a call of suspicious circumstances in the area of Tartan Way and Hurstland Avenue in the City of Beaumont. A passerby reported seeing a male juvenile jumping over the fence into the backyard of a residence, as well as noticing a suspicious vehicle with someone waiting nearby. Officers responded to the location and located two juveniles, officers detained the juveniles and found one to be in possession of cutting tools. While officers were questioning the juveniles, patrol did an area check and found a residence that was open and accessible. Upon conducting a safety check of the residence officers determined that it had been burglarized. Upon further investigation a third juvenile was identified and contact was made with that subject. Officers went to the home of that juvenile and located property that was reported missing from the burglarized residence. All three juveniles were placed under arrest and booked into Riverside County Juvenile Hall pending charges for residential burglary and conspiracy to commit burglary. Due to the assistance of a concerned citizen, the Beaumont Police Department was able to arrest the individuals responsible for this burglary, as well as return all of the stolen property back to the owner. We appreciate the diligence of community members such as this and encourage all of our residents to report suspicious activity to our non-emergency line at 951-769-8500.

#Timeoutfortraffic Let’s face it traffic is a nightmare. No one wants to sit and wait, but did you know those that violate the Anti-Gridlock Act of the CVC actually create MORE traffic for you by impeding the flow of traffic? According to CVC Section 22526(a)...notwithstanding any official traffic control signal indication to proceed, a driver of a vehicle shall NOT enter an intersection or marked crosswalk unless there is sufficient space on the other side of the intersection or marked crosswalk to accommodate the vehicle driven without obstructing the through passage of vehicles from either side. Sections B And D of this same code also apply when entering an intersection on a yellow light or into a railroad crossing. So, in short, if you don’t have enough room to drive completely through an intersection then wait until the traffic clears before trying to cross. Doing so might help you avoid a ticket! Beginning Monday 5/7 through Sunday 5/13 the Beaumont Police Department will be doing focused traffic enforcement in the area of 2nd Street Marketplace. All vehicle codes will be enforced in this area.

It was unknown if any property was taken at the time of the report. A second residential burglary was also reported in the 37000 block of Mulligan Drive.

On Monday, April 30, 2018, the Beaumont Police Department received a call regarding a past commercial burglary in the 1000 block of Beaumont Avenue. No property was reported missing. Additionally, on Monday, grand theft of a generator and trailer was reported. The theft occurred in the area of Michelle Lane and Tukwet Canyon Parkway from a construction site.

#Timeoutfortraffic Let's talk about crosswalks. There's a myth that pedestrians always have the right of way...this isn't necessarily the case. As provided in Section 21950 of the CVC. The driver of a vehicle shall yield the right-of-way to a pedestrian crossing the roadway within any marked crosswalk or within any unmarked crosswalk at an intersection, however... No pedestrian may suddenly leave a curb or other place of safety and walk or run into the path of a vehicle that is so close as to constitute an immediate hazard. No pedestrian may unnecessarily stop or delay traffic while in a marked or unmarked crosswalk. Also, the driver of a vehicle approaching a pedestrian within any marked or unmarked crosswalk shall exercise all due care and shall reduce the speed of the vehicle or take any other action relating to the operation of the vehicle as necessary to safeguard the safety of the pedestrian. But neither of these subsections relieves a driver or pedestrian from the duty of exercising due care for their own safety or the safety of any pedestrian within any marked or unmarked crosswalk at an intersection. Beginning Monday 4/30 through Sunday 5/8 the Beaumont Police Department will be doing focused traffic enforcement in the area of Beaumont Avenue between Oak Valley Parkway and Cherry Valley Blvd. All vehicle codes will be enforced in this area.

Last night members of the Beaumont Police Department Detective Bureau were recognized at the 40th Annual LEAC Awards Ceremony with the Investigative Excellence Award. This esteemed award recognized the extraordinary investigative efforts of Sgt. Galletta, Cpl. Wells, Det. Ford and Det. Steward for the investigation of the homicide of Jasmine Zuniga on March 4, 2017. ***On March 4, 2017, at approximately 10:26p.m., Beaumont Police Department received a 911 call regarding shots fired in the 500 block of Chestnut. Patrol officers responded to the area, and within minutes located a vehicle in the 500 block of Michigan. Officers located an unresponsive female suffering from a gunshot wound.

On March 23, 2017, Beaumont Police Department Detectives and assisting agencies served a series of search warrants resulting in the arrest of four suspects believed to be responsible for Jasmine Zuniga’s homicide. Those suspects are currently awaiting trial. “These types of cases are tragic and sensitive for both law enforcement and the family of the victim. While the Beaumont Police Department continues to send our thoughts and prayers to the family, we are very proud of the work of our officers. We hope that their hard work and diligence to bring this case to a close gives some comfort and peace to the family of Jasmine.” - Sean Thuilliez, Chief of Police, City of Beaumont Congratulations to this great team of detectives and this well deserved award!
