Shop With a Cop Each year, local law enforcement agencies help make the holidays a little brighter for deserving children by conducting a Shop with a Cop event. Over 300 selected children are paired up with an officer and given a set amount of money to shop for themselves or family members. After a brief show and breakfast at Sea World, the children are driven by the officers to Target for a fun morning of shopping and friendship. This year, Chula Vista Police Department along with California Highway Patrol is hosting the event. To help financially support the program, two events are scheduled in November. On Wednesday, November 7, the Chick-fil-A in the Eastlake area (2089 Olympic Parkway) will donate 25% of all proceeds from 5 to 7 p.m. to Shop with a Cop. Simply mention Shop with a Cop to donate when you purchase your dinner! Also, a Barbeque and Bake Sale will be held at the San Diego Police Department headquarters, 1401 Broadway, San Diego, on Wednesday, November 14, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Stop by and enjoy burgers, beans, chips, soda or water for only $7. Can’t make it to the events but want to help this great cause? Online donations for Shop with a Cop are welcomed! https://www.paypal.com/donate/?token=FD5jeSsqZmyohK2CRwkBrgdKDVFONSR3RLviVhf8ROGaw7blIALCO3-T-Q86mr-d8xtUZW&country.x=US&locale.x=US

HOMELESS ADVOCACY HEADQUARTERS TO OPEN IN CHULA VISTA Community Through Hope, a non-profit that benefits residents of Chula Vista in need, will hold a grand opening celebration for its new headquarters. A ribbon cutting ceremony will be held on Friday, November 9, from 10 a.m. to noon at 465 C Street, Chula Vista. Community Through Hope was created in response to assist individuals and families in need in South County. At the C Street location, Community Through Hope will manage a new food bank to consolidate food distribution efforts in South County. In addition, the Chula Vista Police Department (CVPD) Homeless Outreach Team is partnering with the organization to expand homeless outreach efforts and will have a storefront in the new facility to provide case management with homeless individuals by appointment only. There also will be a food bank holding center, a donation center offering clothing, an education space, and other resources to provide homeless and at-risk individuals with assistance. The new location is not an intake facility or a meal distribution center. “This facility will allow the Chula Vista community and the homeless community to engage in giving, supporting and receiving resources,” said CVPD Community Relations Sgt. Frank Giaime. “The overall arching goal is to offer a hand up and not a hand out to the homeless of Chula Vista.” Tours of the facility will be offered immediately following the 10:30 a.m. news conference with Rosy Vasquez, Executive Director of Community Through Hope, Roxana Kennedy, Chula Vista Police Chief, and others providing remarks. In addition, Voices of our City choir, a group of homeless and former homeless individuals, will perform. For more information about CVPD Homeless Outreach Team, go to https://bit.ly/2OY6r93.

Officer Ingram, Officer Perdomo and Officer Richardson responded to a call for service at Eucalyptus Park yesterday afternoon. They arrived to find several furry subjects rabbit away from them. This may not be a typical call for these Officers, but they hopped to it and saved 14 domesticated bunnies from the dangers of the wild. All of the rabbits were safely transported to the Chula Vista Animal Care Facility where they will be cared for until they find a forever home. Although this story had a happy ending, CVPD would like to remind you there are several county and city wide options for your unwanted pets. #ThisisChula #CVPDheroes #adoptapet #foreverhome #loveanimals #pet *1052

Tips for Halloween Safety.

CVPD family, please give a warm welcome to our new friend, Jess. Earlier this week, Jess posted a picture where she was wearing a pink CVPD breast cancer awareness patch, and we couldn't help but notice her beautiful, radiant smile! After reaching out to Jess, we learned that she is a dear friend of our very own Officer Christopher Lawrence. (He is seen on the far left of the second picture wearing HIS pink patch!) You may have heard Officer Lawrence's story before—he's a former Camp Pendleton Marine whose leg was shattered in 2007 during a deployment to Iraq. Jess also entered the picture in 2007, when Officer Lawrence was her patient at Naval Medical Center Balboa. In 2008, Officer Lawrence's leg was amputated due to his injury. Jess says that throughout his trials and tribulations, Officer Lawrence "always had the best attitude and infectious smile," and that, "patients like Chris are the ones that give you the strength to keep doing your job." Our friend Jess clearly has the same great attitude, despite being diagnosed with breast cancer in February. She actually told us that she was 100% sure she would get breast cancer due to her family history, and so she fought for preventative care that ended up saving her life. She has been on triple doses of chemotherapy since July, and she has her last heavy chemo dose in November. She'll continue treatment for at least 12 months after that. She says that she and Officer Lawrence have talked about her condition often—and when CVPD breast cancer awareness patches went up for sale, she was gifted one by her friend. She wears it with pride and even told us that "CVPD is #1 for me!” Jess and Officer Lawrence, thank you for sharing your story with us. You are incredible inspirations to those going through the same, or similar struggles. We are proud to know you. If you are interested in purchasing a CVPD Commemorative Breast Cancer Awareness patch or keychain for $5, please contact Community Relations at 619-691-5187. Chula Vista Brewery will also have a limited supply for sale. #breastcancerawareness -1180

Test of the National Wireless Emergency Alert System October 3, 2018 at 11:15 a.m. No reason to become alarmed. Your mobile phone will emit a special tone and vibrate as it receives an emergency TEST message on October 3. It is part of a nationwide test by the Federal Emergency Management Agency of the Wireless Emergency Alerts systems to assess its effectiveness. You don’t need to take any action for the test. In a real situation, the system would be used to warn the public about dangerous weather, missing children, or another critical situation that may require you to evacuate or remain in place. The message is scheduled to be sent within 30 minutes of 11:15 a.m. PDT on Wednesday, October 3, with a heading of “Presidential Alert.” It is the first nationwide test to wireless phones using this system. Wireless Emergency Alerts do not require users to “opt-in,” and most mobile phones in use today can receive the 90-character text-like messages. Wireless Emergency Alerts can be sent by the National Weather Service, local first responder agencies, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, and the President through a system devised by FEMA and the Federal Communications Commission. The test will go out to participating wireless phone company customers whose phones are turned on and within range of an active cell tower. Once you receive the message, that concludes the test, no further action is required. Remember, this is only a TEST. At about the same time on October 3, FEMA will also run a test of the Emergency Alert System on television and radio. PLEASE DO NOT CALL 9-1-1 DURING THIS TEST UNLESS YOU HAVE A TRUE EMERGENCY.

Go Chief, yeah that’s our Chief! 😊 -1180
