On Thursday, October 5, 2017 at about 3:00 pm, Upland Police Officers responded to a residence in the 1400 block of N. Ukiah in reference to information obtained about a grow house marijuana cultivation. The officers conducted an initial investigation and determined marijuana grow operation was likely. The Upland C.R.O Team with the assistance of a member of the joint Ontario Upland Narcotics Task Force obtained a search warrant for the location. The warrant service resulted in the seizure of over 150 marijuana plants. Evidence seized at the location suggests the plants were a for-profit operations being sold illegally on the street and in dispensaries. One person was arrested in connection with the illegal marijuana grow and the ongoing investigation may lead to additional prosecutions and/or arrests.

State Help is available for survivors of Las Vegas Mass Shooting.

Our thoughts and prayers from all of us at @UplandPolice to all the victims, family, friends, residents, and first responders from #VegasStrong.

Sobriety Checkpoint Success Hello Everyone, This past weekend, we held a sobriety checkpoint on 16th East of Benson Ave. Due to the high volume of traffic in the area it presents a challenge for these events, yet it was accomplished safely and it was a huge success. Checkpoint Statistics: 1122 Vehicles came through 872 Were checked/contacted by PD 47 Pulled to the secondary for further examination 1 Warrant Arrest 4 DUI Arrests 3 Cites for unlicensed driver 5 Cites for suspended driver 6 Tows for 30 days 2 Tows for driver being arrested 18 Citations for illegal U-turn and/or red light violation 1 miscellaneous citation Ultimately, the most impressive statistic is the tremendous community awareness towards our efforts in reducing/eradicating impaired driving in our City. On a brighter note, we will have additional checkpoints in the future Please remember to designate and NOT Drink and Drive.

Come Join Us at National Coffee with a Cop being held at Memorial Park (Kitchen Area) on Wednesday, October 4th, from 5pm to 7pm. Please let us know if you are going to join us on our event portion so we can plan accordingly. Hope to see you there!

DUI/Drivers License Checkpoint Planned this Weekend Upland, CA – Upland Police Department Traffic Unit will be conducting a DUI/Drivers License Checkpoint on 09/22/17, at an undisclosed location within the city limits between the hours of 7:00 p.m. to 3:00 a.m. In recent years, California has seen a disturbing increase in drug-impaired driving crashes. Upland supports the new effort from the Office of Traffic Safety that aims to educate all drivers that “DUI Doesn’t Just Mean Booze.” If you take prescription drugs, particularly those with a driving or operating machinery warning on the label, you might be impaired enough to get a DUI. Marijuana can also be impairing, especially in combination with alcohol or other drugs, and can result in a DUI. The deterrent effect of High Visibility Enforcement using both DUI checkpoints and DUI Saturation Patrols has proven to lower the number of persons killed and injured in alcohol or drug impaired crashes. Research shows that crashes involving an impaired driver can be reduced by up to 20 percent when well-publicized proactive DUI operations are conducted routinely. DUI Checkpoints like this one are placed in locations based on collision statistics and frequency of DUI arrests, affording the greatest opportunity for achieving drunk and drugged driving deterrence. Locations are chosen with safety considerations for the officers and the public. In California, alcohol involved collisions led to 1,155 deaths and nearly 24,000 serious injuries in 2014 because someone failed to designate a sober driver. Over the course of the past three years Upland PD officers have investigated 72 DUI collisions which have claimed 5 lives and resulted in another 83 injuries. Officers will be looking for signs of alcohol and/or drug impairment, with officers checking drivers for proper licensing, delaying motorists only momentarily. When possible, specially trained officers will be available to evaluate those suspected of drug-impaired driving, which now accounts for a growing number of impaired driving crashes. Studies of California drivers have shown that 30 percent of drivers in fatal crashes had one or more drugs in their systems. A study of active drivers showed more tested positive for drugs that may impair driving (14 percent) than did for alcohol (7.3 percent). Of the drugs, marijuana was most prevalent, at 7.4 percent, slightly more than alcohol. Everyone should be mindful that if you’re taking medication – whether prescription or over-the-counter – drinking even small amounts of alcohol can greatly intensify the impairment affects. Drivers are encouraged to download the Designated Driver VIP, or “DDVIP,” free mobile app for Android or iPhone. The DDVIP app helps find nearby bars and restaurants that feature free incentives for the designated sober driver, from free non-alcoholic drinks to free appetizers and more. The feature-packed app even has social media tie-ins and even a tab for the non-DD to call Uber, Lyft or Curb. Drivers caught driving impaired can expect the impact of a DUI arrest to include jail time, fines, fees, DUI classes, license suspensions and other expenses that can exceed $10,000 not to mention the embarrassment when friends and family find out. Funding for this checkpoint is provided to Upland Police Department by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, reminding everyone to ‘Report Drunk Driver – Call 9-1-1’.

DUI Checkpoint Nets 9 Arrests Upland, CA – Upland Police Department Traffic Unit conducted a DUI/Drivers License checkpoint on 9/15/17, at 1850 N. Mountain Ave. between the hours of 7:00 p.m. and 3:00 a.m. Checkpoints are placed in locations that have the greatest opportunity for achieving drunk and drugged driving deterrence and provide the greatest safety for officers and the public.

Of the drugs, marijuana was most prevalent, at 7.4 percent, slightly more than alcohol. Highlighting two incidents that occurred during the checkpoint will hopefully educate the motoring public to not drive while impaired. A husband and wife chose to drive separate cars to a local bar. They both spent some time socializing and drinking alcohol. They then chose to both drive (Separately) back home (“We only live right up the street”). After conducting DUI investigations, they were both later arrested for DUI, taken to jail together, and their cars were towed. Later that night, a very dangerous situation occurred. The checkpoint was running smoothly, and then a motorist decided thought he was able to drive at nearly 2 ½ times over the legal limit. A line of about 8 or so cars were being screened at the checkpoint, when this intoxicated motorist crashed his car into the back of another car. Thankfully, both involved vehicles only received minor injuries as a result of the crash. The intoxicated driver was later arrested for DUI. His wrecked car was also towed as a result of the arrest. In addition, 4 people were arrested for outstanding arrest warrants related to a previous DUI or driving on a suspended California Driver’s License. 753 Vehicles Screened 5 DUI arrests 4 Arrested on other Criminal Charges 15 Drivers cited/arrested for operating a vehicle unlicensed or while suspended/revoked Drivers are encouraged to download the Designated Driver VIP, or “DDVIP,” free mobile app for Android or iPhone.

Marijuana Dispensary Closure As part of an ongoing investigation, at about 12:00 p.m., officers served a search warrant on an illegal marijuana dispensary at the 100 block of E. 8th. St. Once inside the establishment, officers found money, drugs and other paraphernalia as evidence of the illegal business. Officers confiscated numerous items which were indicia of an illegal marijuana dispensary in our City. While there were no employees present during the seizure of the business, the property owner was issued an administrative citation for conducting an Illegal Business in the City of Upland. In addition, as police officers were approaching the business to serve the warrant there was at least one patron waiting at the location. This person was detained and later determined to have an outstanding warrant out of Florida. Based on the original charges of the warrant, the State of Florida had nationwide extradition if this person was arrested. This was another successful closure to an illegal business operation within the City of Upland and part of a larger investigation of other similar businesses in our City. Anyone with information about this or other illegal businesses operating within the City are asked to contact the Upland Police Department, community Resource Officers, at (909) 946-7624.
