Coronado Police Department News

Our flags have been lowered at half-staff upon the proclamation of the President “as a mark of respect for the victims”… of the shooting in Sutherland Springs, Texas. They will remain lowered until sunset, November 9.

Daylight saving time ends this weekend. It's a good reminder to change the batteries in your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors.

Downtown Goes Ghostly was a huge success last night. Thanks for stopping by and sharing your great costumes with us. See you next year!

Fall safety forecast- predicting a safe and secure Coronado. Now that the lazy days of summer are over, it is time to think about how the changing seasons can change the direction of crime. With fall and winter arriving, comes more darkness and more activities after dark. Here are some crime prevention strategies to consider: • Make sure your bicycle has a light (try “blinkie” lights) and reflective decals on the rims or spokes. • When riding your bicycle at night, make sure you wear reflective clothing and reflective decals on your helmet and shoes. • Don’t return home to a dark house. Put exterior & interior lights on timers. • Trim landscaping to aid visibility & increase the ability to be seen. • Don’t open the door to a stranger—day or night. Say “no thank you” through the door. • If it is no longer light when you go out to jog or walk, consider your options. • Walk or jog with a friend. • Always carry your phone. Let someone know when you will be back. • Use a well-traveled, well-lit path. • Be aware & alert. If you don’t like what you see, take a different path. • Be visible. Wear reflective clothing when walking or jogging. • Park your car as close as possible, under a light & remove all personal property. • Make sure your car is in good repair tires & all. • Use your headlights in the rain. • Remove distractions while driving especially in limited light. • Plan for leaving work after dark. Walk with others, get a security escort or call someone on the phone. Park under a light & have your keys in hand. • End of Daylight Savings Time is a great time to change the batteries in smoke alarms. Let’s all have a safe and secure fall.

Countdown to Halloween What's your plan? Let us help you come up with a plan to keep all our little ghouls and goblins safe. Trick-or-Treat! Safely… Halloween preparation • Plan a Halloween party instead of trick-or-treating—or attend a community event such as Coronado downtown “goes ghostly” from 3:30 to 5 p.m. on Halloween night. Officers will be handing out treats starting at 3:30 p.m. in front of the PD! • Chose comfortable costumes and shoes that do not restrict movement • Avoid dark-colored costumes • Use make-up rather than a mask • Make sure costumes are fire proof or treated with fire retardant • Use reflective fabric or tape to improve visibility Halloween day • Turn on exterior lights and remove objects that could cause tripping • Avoid trick-or-treating alone – stay with an adult and in groups • Remind kids to steer clear of strangers • Start early in the evening and stay in your own neighborhood • Carry a flashlight or a light stick and a cell phone • Stay in well-lit areas • Walk on sidewalks and cross at corners or lights; do not cross mid-block • Avoid dark areas and houses • Never enter a home without parental permission, even if in a group • Inspect Halloween treats before letting kids eat them • Eat only treats that are sealed and/or in original packaging The Police Department will have extra patrols out on Halloween night, but if you see anything suspicious, please give us a call at (619) 522-7350.

It’s #feelgoodFriday and we wanted to share a Facebook message that made our day! 💕 “We were in Coronado about a month ago for my mother and fathers 40th wedding anniversary (my father grew up there and that is where they met and were married). Anyways, my reason for this message is this: We were having some family photos around your beautiful building and the struggle is real to get 4 small children to all look at the camera and smile, well an extremely kind and thoughtful officer on a motorcycle pulled around and flashed his lights so that all the kids would look his way right behind the camera. He is a saint, really. I just wanted to say thanks for what seems like such a small act pretty much made my 2 year olds life! Thanks to all the hard working men and women! -Friends from Utah”

Join us this Saturday, October 28, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., for National Prescription Drug Take Back Day. These events are designed to prevent the abuse and theft of potentially dangerous expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs by removing the drugs from homes. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked. Be part of the initiative to stop prescription drug abuse. Did you know that medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse, or even accidental poisoning? Also, did you know that flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash pose potential safety and health hazards? If you can't make it this Saturday, don't forget that we have a collection box in the PD lobby available during regular business hours.

Coronado Police Officers descend on the High School and greet students as they leave early on the third heat day this week. Officers came with ice cream for the students to enjoy during the hot weather. It is a good time to remind the public to hydrate during these unseasonably hot days.
