Hi, Clovis! Are you planning a yard sale or garage sale soon? If so, we hope it's very successful! When it's over, please remember to take down your signs. We strive to keep Clovis safe and free of blight, but we need your help! Our patrol volunteers spend quite a bit of time removing these signs all over the city. If we all remember to remove our signs, we can focus our resources on other issues within the city. We are very grateful to our patrol volunteers that give their time to patrol our city. Volunteers Isom and McGrady are out and about today removing signs. If you see them, give them a wave!

...all in a day's work! Our staff at the City of Clovis Animal Services Lost and Found located a pig today! More info is available in the post below. If you know the owner, please have them contact our Animal Services at the FB page link above, or at (559) 324-2450!

The Clovis Police Department Encourages Everyone to Celebrate Halloween Responsibly Halloween is a time when thousands of trick-or-treaters dressed up in their favorite costumes will be out and about having a good time collecting candy. For other adults, that means heading to local bars, restaurants or house parties to celebrate the holiday. With so many people hitting the streets Oct. 31, The Clovis Police Department wants to remind those participating in events where alcohol may be involved to celebrate Halloween responsibly. In partnership with the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS), Clovis Police Department is encouraging everyone to not put yourself and others at risk by choosing to drink and drive. If you plan to drink, plan a sober ride home. “Halloween should be a fun night for kids and adults,” Officer Bradford said. “By planning ahead, abiding by the rules of the road and driving sober, everyone can enjoy a safe night out.” Unfortunately, Halloween night is also when there is an uptick in drunk-driving related crashes. Between 2012 and 2016, there were 168 drunk-driving deaths on Halloween night. Forty-four percent of all people killed in crashes on Halloween night were in crashes involving a drunk driver, according to data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Younger drivers (21-34 years old) pose the greatest risk, accounting for nearly half of all deaths in drunk-driving crashes on Halloween night in 2016. “We want people to enjoy Halloween, but also act responsibly,” Bradford said. “There are no excuses for driving impaired. There are so many options to get home safely.”

It's the day before Halloween and we would like to provide some safety tips for you and your children to ensure everyone has a happy and safe time trick-or-treating! As always, we are here 24 hours a day at 911 for emergencies, and (559) 324-2800 for non-emergencies. Please save that phone number in your cell phone for any future reference!

Thank you to everyone who came out to the 4th Annual #BooFest at the Sierra Vista Mall on Friday, 10/26! There were so many amazing costumes & fun things to do for the kids & family! Thank you to all of the organizations & businesses who helped make this another successful event for our community! Have a happy & safe Halloween!

Suspect Arrested Overnight for Attempted Kidnapping On Tuesday, October 16, Clovis Police received several calls for service around lunch time in the area of Willow Ave./W. Ashlan Ave. regarding a suspicious male following adult women. The callers reported that a male in an older model blue pick-up truck was driving up and down Willow Ave. approximately between W. Ashlan Ave. and W. Gettysburg Ave. It appeared the male was trying to lure females into his vehicle. Two separate victims were located and reported to Officers that the suspect was aggressive and they feared for their safety. One witness was able to obtain a photo of the suspect and the license plate on the truck he was driving. This information led Detectives to a residence in Fresno where he was arrested without incident. Clovis Police Detectives arrested 32 year-old Lammar Carey of Fresno for two counts of felony attempted kidnapping. Carey was booked into Fresno County Jail overnight. It is possible that Carey attempted to contact additional women during this time frame. If you have information about additional victims, you are asked to contact the Clovis Police Department at (559) 324-2800. The Clovis Police Department would like to remind residents to dial 911 when or if you believe someone is following you or committing a crime. Thank you to the victims and witnesses who stepped forward and provided statements for this case.

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. One great resource in Fresno County is the Marjaree Mason Center. It takes just one phone call and one person to #StopTheCycle of domestic violence. Please, take that moment to pick up the phone or talk to someone.
