PRESS RELEASE For Immediate Release: Contact: Office of the Chief of Police (323) 826-6629 Huntington Park Police Department Receives New Grant to Fight Alcohol-related Crime City will receive $30,000 to Reduce Alcohol Related Problems Huntington Park Police Chief Cosme Lozano announced today that the Police Department has been awarded a $30,000 grant from the California Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) to battle alcohol-related crime. “This is important to the city in order to increase protection for youth and to shut down problem locations that have contributed to an increase in crime,” Lozano said. The grant is one of 51 awarded in California to local law enforcement agencies through ABC’s Alcoholic Policing Partnership Program. The grants strengthen local law enforcement efforts by combining the efforts of local police officers and ABC agents. ABC agents have expertise in alcoholic beverage laws and can help communities reduce alcohol-related problems. “The program improves the quality of life in neighborhoods,” said ABC Director Jacob Applesmith. “We’ve seen a real difference in the communities where the grant program resources have been invested.” The GAP Program was created in 1995 to strengthen partnerships between ABC and local law enforcement agencies. The program is designed to put bad operators out of business, keep alcohol away from minors and bring penalties such as fines, suspensions or revocations against businesses that violate the law. The funds will be used to reduce the number of alcoholic beverage sales to minors, obviously intoxicated patrons, illegal solicitations of alcohol, and other criminal activities such as the sale and possession of illegal drugs. The GAP Program has distributed over $20 million to local law enforcement to combat alcohol-related crime. ABC is a Department of the Business, Consumer Services and Housing Agency.

PRESS RELEASE For Immediate Release: Contact: Office of the Chief of Police (323) 826-6629 Huntington Park Police Department closes out 2017/2018 ABC Grant with Success! In July of 2017, the Huntington Park Police Department received a grant in the amount of $35,000 from the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) to conduct various operations and inspections at ABC licensed establishments. The purpose of this grant was to reduce the ability for minors to obtain alcohol, reduce the amount of alcohol related crimes at ABC licensed establishments and to provide training and educational opportunities to licensed business owners and employees. Since July 2017, 52 operations and inspections have been conducted at ABC licensed establishments. Operations ranged from the use of minors to attempt to purchase alcohol from local bars, restaurants, liquor stores and gas stations to undercover operations aimed at reducing crimes at ABC licensed premises. In addition, increased staffing was utilized for DUI and Party Patrol enforcement. During these operations, decoys (minors) entered a total of 28 licensed establishments and attempted to purchase alcohol. Of these 28 locations, a total of eight establishments furnished an alcoholic beverage to the decoy. The decoys also contacted 44 patrons in front of liquor stores and convenience stores asking them to purchase alcohol on their behalf. A total of nine adults purchased alcohol and knowingly furnished it to the minor decoys. As a result of numerous citizen complaints, high volumes of calls for police service, and undercover operations conducted during this grant resulting in various licensing violations, the City of Huntington Park was able to revoke a Conditional Use Permit (CUP) and permanently shut down a local bar in the 3200 block of Gage Avenue. During the grant period, educational presentations were provided to residents at neighborhood watch meetings, and roll call training was provided to officers regarding alcohol related issues and current ABC guidelines. The grant was highly successful and yielded a total of 60 arrests for various violations including sales of alcohol to minors, furnishing alcohol to minors, driving under the influence and drinking alcohol in public. Due to the success of investigative operations during the 2017-2018 grant period, the Huntington Park Police Department has been awarded an additional grant for 2018-2019.

Today members of the Huntington Park Police Department participated in the annual Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics Southern California.

This week is dedicated to public safety dispatchers who aid in providing 9-1-1 emergency assistance across the country. The term "9-1-1" is often associated with rapid emergency response, poise under pressure, aid and compassion in times of distress, and critical decision-making within seconds. Many people do not stop to think about these seemingly nameless, faceless individuals until they experience an actual emergency themselves. These professionals make the difference between life and death in many instances. Across the nation, 9-1-1 dispatchers will celebrate National Public Safety Telecommunicators' Week. The United States Congress designated the second full week in April as a time to honor all 9-1-1 dispatchers who answer the calls for help and provide emergency assistance to the public and emergency public safety responders. Special thanks to La Monaraca Bakery for providing some delicious treats for our dispatchers this morning. #nationalpublicsafetytelecommunicatorsweek

351 Arrested so far in Statewide Underage Drinking Enforcement Operation ABC and over 70 Local Law Enforcement Agencies Team Up to Increase Public Safety and Protect Youth (California) - Agents from the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) and Officers from over 70 local Police and Sheriff’s Departments have arrested or cited 351 individuals during a statewide underage drinking enforcement operation designed to create awareness to the problem of underage drinking and also protect California’s youth while increasing public safety. The goal of the ongoing operation is to raise awareness about the dangers of underage drinking and also make it clear to any adults that buy alcohol for minors that there are serious consequences. “Unfortunately over 4,000 young people die in alcohol-related tragedies every year in this country,” said ABC Acting Director Jacob Appelsmith. “This collaborative effort among California peace officers creates awareness to underage drinking issues, increases public safety for communities and also boosts protections for California’s young people.” The operation so far has resulted in citations for 277 individuals who allegedly furnished alcoholic beverages to minors, 26 other individuals have been cited for open containers and 48 others have been cited or taken into custody for various crimes such as outstanding warrants, illegal drugs, public drunkenness or DUI. The operation is an effort to build safer and stronger communities by holding individuals accountable for illegal activity that creates harm. ABC agents and local law enforcement conducted a program called the “Decoy Shoulder Tap Operation”. Under the program, a minor under the direct supervision of a peace officer will stand outside a liquor or convenience store and ask patrons to buy them alcohol. The minor indicates in some way he or she is underage and cannot purchase the alcohol. If the adults agree, and purchase alcohol for the minor, officers then arrest and cite them for furnishing alcohol to the minor. The penalty for furnishing alcohol to a minor is a minimum $1000 fine and 24 hours of community service. The program is intended to reduce the availability of alcohol to minors. Many of today’s local operations were funded by the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control through the Department’s Grant Assistance Program (GAP) and some were funded by the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). ABC protects communities through excellence in education and by administering prevention and enforcement programs designed to increase compliance with California’s alcoholic beverage laws. ABC’s mission is to provide the highest level of service and public safety through licensing, education and enforcement. To learn more about ABC programs that help protect communities, prevent alcohol-related harm and potentially save lives visit https://www.abc.ca.gov/programs/programs_PE.html. ABC is a Department of the Business, Consumer Services and Housing Agency. During this statewide operation, Huntington Park officers arrested two individuals for furnishing alcohol to minors.

Last week our mental health / homeless services officer worked diligently on addressing the cleanliness of the city. Numerous local businesses owners, the railroad company, and our officer worked together to address the growing homeless encampments on the railroad right of way. Our officer not only helps clean the area, he also brings county services along to assist any homeless person that needs help with assistance and shelter. We understand the need to balance the needs of the communities cleanliness with the ability to provide assistance to those in need.

Merry Christmas from the H.P.P.D. Family. We wish you all a safe and joyful holiday season with your loved ones.
