Report Graffiti, Potholes, Illegal dumping and more!

Labor Day weekend is coming up. For many Americans, that means an extra day off, backyard and beach barbecues, visiting friends and family, and the unofficial end of the summer season. Unfortunately, it also means a sharp increase in drunk-driving-related fatalities. Now through Labor Day, Sept. 1, the Redlands Police Department will be aggressively targeting drunk and drugged drivers as part of a nationwide effort to end impaired driving and save lives. The Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign will pair increased public awareness with high-visibility enforcement, resulting in fewer drunk drivers on Redlands streets.

Redlands Police will be looking for impaired drivers throughout the city with plans in place for DUI/Drivers License checkpoints on Aug. 23 in the southbound lanes of Tennessee Street at Park Avenue and Aug. 29 in the eastbound lanes of Redlands Boulevard at 7th Street. Both will be conducted between the hours of 10 p.m. and 3 a.m. A checkpoint was also held in the southbound lanes of Cajon Street at Cypress Avenue on Aug. 15 as part of this campaign.

An all-night standoff with a suicidal man who locked himself in his vehicle in a gym parking lot Wednesday afternoon ended Thursday morning, Aug. 21, when the man fatally shot himself.

Police crisis negotiators spent more than 17 hours talking to the 50-year-old man by phone as he sat locked in his vehicle with a gun in the parking lot of LA Fitness at 1035 Parkford Drive. Paramedics stood by ready to provide treatment. Shortly before 7:30 a.m. a shot was fired in the vehicle. Police approached the vehicle and found the man critically injured.

Redlands Firefighter Paramedics treated the man on scene and in the AMR ambulance as he was transported to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The Redlands Animal Shelter is teaming up with Redlands Friends of the Animal Shelter (REDFOSA) to fund the creation of a much needed Care and Isolation Room for the Shelter.

Dogs and cats are brought into the Shelter on a daily basis, many having special needs or medical issues. Puppies and kittens that are abandoned are at great risk of developing parvovirus or distemper. At the present time, there is not an adequate room or area at the Redlands Animal Shelter to isolate these animals until they can be vaccinated or to allow a separate rest and recovery area to heal if needed. Lack of a separate area or room, means that these injured or at-risk animals have to stay in the general kennel area, often housed within inches of other animals. This situation potentially puts ALL animals at risk of contracting a communicable disease.

The cities of Redlands and Highland will hold a joint event to encourage residents of both cities to recycle used motor oil filters.

Do-it-yourself auto enthusiasts may bring up to three used oil filters for recycling and exchange for new filters. In addition, they will receive a free bucket, oil drain pan and other items as a gift for participating in the recycling program.

The free event, open to Redlands and Highland residents only with valid ID or a utility bill for verification, will be held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 11, at Auto Zone, 27292 Baseline Road in Highland. Filters and other gifts are available only at the Highland store until 2 p.m. or while supplies last.

The Redlands Police Department Citizen Volunteers will be at Market Night again Thursday, Aug. 21, to provide free child fingerprinting.

One evening a month, volunteers staff a booth at the Thursday night market on State Street fingerprinting children to give families a record that can be used in case of emergencies. The service is free and available to anyone with children.

Once the child is fingerprinted, the card will be given to the child’s parents or guardian. Redlands Police will not keep any records on file. Parents are encouraged to attach a current photo of their child and a lock of hair and to keep the card handy in the event of an emergency.

The public is invited to attend a third and final workshop on energy efficiency designed to educate local residents and business owners on the programs, benefits and incentives available through Southern California Edison’s Partnership for energy efficiency. The workshop will also include an overview of the recommended energy efficiency measures for the Redlands Energy Action Plan.

An anonymous donor has pledged to match up to $2,500 in donations toward the Redlands Police Department’s Narcotics K-9 unit. A fundraiser to support the unit is currently being held until the end of August at The Taco Shack, 510 E. State St. culminating with Redlands Chief of Police Mark A. Garcia volunteering as a chew toy for a police dog during a noon event at the restaurant on Aug. 30.

The donor, who did not wish to be identified, contacted City officials pledging to donate up to $2,500 to the police program to match $2,500 in additional donations.

From Aug. 11 through Aug. 30, Taco Shack customers can donate to the K-9 program and will be recognized with your name on the walls of the restaurant. In addition to the Taco Shack, major sponsors include Toyota of Redlands and Furry Face.

The Redlands Police Department will conduct a DUI/Drivers License checkpoint in the southbound lanes of Cajon Street at Cypress Avenue from 10 p.m. Friday, August 15, until 3 a.m. Saturday morning. 

The Redlands Police Department offers the following advice for anyone hosting or planning to attend a weekend get-together or any kind of event where alcohol is served.

The City Council will hold a special meeting at 4:30 p.m. Monday, Aug. 11, to consider ratifying a declaration of local emergency following Sunday’s rain storm.

The meeting will be held in the Assembly Room at the A.K. Smiley Public Library, 125 W. Vine St.
