Burlingame Police Department News

Last Friday, Chief Wollman was pleased to find two citizens utilizing our Internet Exchange Zone in our front parking lot as he was pulling in to the station. The popularity of online commerce has increased in recent years and has brought with it the threat of new crimes in our communities. Consumers are meeting in public and private locations to exchange money and goods, and although rare, fraud and incidents of theft have occurred during these exchanges and transactions. The Internet Exchange Zone at BPD is designated by signs, and monitored and recorded by video cameras as well as officers. We encourage our citizens to take advantage of this Internet Exchange Location when buying or selling property online.

On Monday, May 21st, Charles Dilla Veloso was honored by the Burlingame Police Department and the Central County Fire Department at the Burlingame City Council meeting for his outstanding actions. On April 28th, 2018, at approximately 4:30pm, while walking in front of 1512 Floribunda Avenue, Charles came upon a male who was displaying obvious signs of distress. He was bent over, kneeling on the ground and appeared to be dizzy and sweating. He also had a small laceration on his head. Charles came to his aid and asked him if he needed assistance. His responses made Charles realize he was having a medical emergency. Charles immediately called 911 and reported the incident, providing the location and the man’s medical status. Charles stayed with him until help arrived and transported the man to San Mateo General Hospital where he was treated and ultimately released home. If not for Charles’ attentiveness, quick actions, and willingness to help, this incident could have ended tragically.

Click It Or Ticket Seatbelt Education and Enforcement Campaign As the unofficial start of summer, the Memorial Day holiday weekend is a busy time for Californians. Each year, the highways fill with families in vehicles, on their way to start their summer vacations. To help keep drivers and passengers safe, the Burlingame Police Department is reminding motorists to Click It or Ticket. The national seat belt campaign will take place May 21 through June 3, concurrent with the busy travel season. The Burlingame Police Department will deploy additional officers during the two-week campaign on special traffic patrols specifically to stop and ticket both drivers and passengers for failing to use the vehicle’s safety belt restraints. This will also include drivers who fail to secure children in the proper child restraint seats. This education and enforcement effort is funded by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, and remember - Report Drunk Drivers - call 911.

April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month: Put Your Phone Down, Just Drive! The Burlingame Police Department will join law enforcement throughout the state to step up enforcement along with awareness efforts by the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) to discourage distracted driving. Officers will have a special emphasis this month on enforcing all cell phone and distracted driving laws. The goal is to increase voluntary compliance by drivers, but sometimes citations are necessary for motorists to better understand the importance of driving distraction The Burlingame is deploying extra traffic officers with OTS grant-funded resources, between the hours of 7am and 3pm, on Friday April 6th and Friday April 13th in city locations with higher numbers of traffic collisions. This campaign is funded by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The Burlingame Police Department has the following Safety Tips: - If you receive a text message or need to send one, pull over and park your car in a safe location, but ‘never’ on a freeway. Once you are safely off the road, it is safe to text. - Designate your passenger as your “designated texter.” Allow them access to your phone to respond to calls or messages. - Do not engage in social media scrolling or messaging while driving. - Cell phone use can be habit-forming. Struggling to not text and drive? Put the cell phone in the trunk or back seat of your vehicle until you arrive at your final destination.

Happy International Women’s Day!
