San Diego Community College Police Department News

Today, department members ran in the 114th Regional Academy Pride Run in support of our newest member, Officer Winger. Congrats on a job well done and welcome to the team!

The White House Office of the Press Secretary May 11, 2018 President Donald J. Trump Proclaims May 15, 2018, as Peace Officers Memorial Day and May 13 through May 19, 2018, as Police Week BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA A PROCLAMATION On Peace Officers Memorial Day and during Police Week, we acknowledge the incredible service and sacrifices law enforcement personnel make each day for their fellow Americans. The brave men and women of our Nation’s law enforcement work long hours, often in dangerous situations, to protect our lives, liberty, and property. We also take this opportunity to pay tribute to law enforcement personnel who have been killed or disabled in the line of duty. We will never forget their courage. In addition to expressing our appreciation for our dedicated law enforcement professionals, we must equip them to carry out the tremendous responsibility of keeping our communities safe. Through the Department of Justice, my Administration will continue to provide our Nation’s law enforcement agencies with the resources they need and deserve to keep our citizens safe and our communities secure. This includes providing substantial funding for hiring additional police officers, training for active shooter situations, and improving the safety of our Nation’s schools. My Administration will also continue to advance the National Blue Alert Network, an emergency alert and early warning system that protects America’s law enforcement officers and the communities they serve. The Department of Justice and the Federal Communications Commission worked together to establish a dedicated Emergency Alert System event code. This code facilitates rapid dissemination of critical information to law enforcement agencies and the public about violent offenders who have killed, seriously injured, or who pose an imminent and credible threat to law enforcement officers. The exceptional men and women of law enforcement work every day to protect our lives, and this code helps us protect theirs. The safety and health of our officers must be a priority for all Americans. Every day, members of law enforcement risk their lives in service to those they have pledged to protect and defend. We must not take their devotion to duty for granted, and we must do everything in our power to ensure their physical and mental well-being. Earlier this year, I was pleased to sign into law the Law Enforcement Mental Health and Wellness Act of 2017, which helps provide police officers the resources they need to deal with job stress and trauma associated with their demanding career field. The work of law enforcement officers is essential to preserving peace in our communities and to ensuring the safety of precious lives and personal property. My Administration proudly salutes the patriots in law enforcement who selflessly serve our Nation. We also solemnly acknowledge our debt to those who have lost their lives in the line of duty. These officers and their families have our prayers and unwavering gratitude. By a joint resolution approved October 1, 1962, as amended (76 Stat. 676), and by Public Law 103-322, as amended (36 U.S.C. 136-137), the President has been authorized and requested to designate May 15 of each year as “Peace Officers Memorial Day” and the week in which it falls as “Police Week.” NOW, THEREFORE, I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim May 15, 2018, as Peace Officers Memorial Day and May 13 through May 19, 2018, as Police Week. In humble appreciation of our hardworking law enforcement officers, Melania and I will light the White House in blue on May 15. I call upon all Americans to observe Peace Officers Memorial Day and Police Week with appropriate ceremonies and activities. I also call on the Governors of the States and Territories and officials of other areas subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, to direct that the flag be flown at half-staff on Peace Officers Memorial Day. I further encourage all Americans to display the flag at half staff from their homes and businesses on that day. IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this eleventh day of May, in the year of our Lord two thousand eighteen, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and forty-second. DONALD J. TRUMP

Amazing job by the officer!

May 7, 2018 Dear Colleagues and Friends: I am writing to inform you of the sad news that Donald E. Johnson, former Chief of Police of the San Diego Community College District Police Department, died last week. In July 1979, Chief Johnson started with the District as “Chief of Security.” Prior to his appointment, there were separate security departments within the District: one at each of the colleges, and one at the newly-constructed ECC, now the headquarters campus of Continuing Education. Each department had its own employees and even different uniforms. Under Chief Johnson, the department was centralized, standardized, and, following Board action in 1987 to authorize the formation of the San Diego Community College District Police Department, professionalized. Chief Johnson, who had served as a Police Officer with the San Diego Police Department prior to his service to the District, was selected as the first Chief of Police, a position he held until his retirement from the District in December 1997. During that time, the Department applied for and was certified as a California Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) agency. Department employees who were serving as Security Officer IIs at the time were encouraged to apply to and attend the POST Academy at Miramar College. These employees became police officers, along with a number of newly hired employees from other police departments. Chief Johnson also led the way in parking administration. In 1989, in response to changes in state legislation relating to parking fees, the District’s centralized parking program was established. A centralized Dispatch communications facility was created, and alarm monitoring was transferred from third-party security companies to the in-house systems still used today. During his tenure with the District, Chief Johnson oversaw the conversion of a number of small, disparately run security departments to the development of what is now the largest community college police department in California. He improved the standards, training, and equipment for all officers, and the safety of District students, personnel, and buildings. He was a visionary who was able to do all of this while maintaining close relationships with people throughout the District. He will be greatly missed. . Funeral services for Don Johnson will be held on Saturday, May 12, at the Whitehaven Chapel in Memphis, Tennessee. A local memorial service is being planned for here in San Diego, and this information will be shared when available. Dr. Constance M. Carroll Chancellor San Diego Community College District
