The nine-week Citizen Volunteer Academy provides volunteers training in citation writing, radio procedure, crime scene management, report writing, traffic control, patrol vehicle driving, Emergency Operations Center operations and other areas.

Participants receive an additional 32 hours of training in the field by experienced CVP Field Training Officers before they are ready for the full range of CVP duties.

Interviews for the Academy are currently being held. Anyone interested may visit the RPD volunteer page at http://cityofredlands.org/police/volunteers for information and an application.

Accustomed to handing out crime-prevention and public safety tips, Redlands Police officers will be accepting tips to benefit St. Jude Children’s Hospital on Monday, Sept. 9, at Chili’s Grill & Bar.

Redlands Police officers and other RPD personnel will be waiting tables at the restaurant at 10020 Alabama St. from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Monday, as part of the Tip-A-Cop effort benefiting St. Jude Children’s Hospital.

 

 

 

 

Four people were cited after buying alcohol for a 19-year-old Redlands Police volunteer outside four local businesses last week. The enforcement effort, known as a “shoulder tap operation,” was part of a $23,714 grant from the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control.

On Friday, Aug. 29, between 7 and 11:30 p.m., the 19-year-old female volunteers stood outside local businesses on Colton Avenue, Orange Street and Redlands Boulevard and offered to give people entering the stores money to buy beer. Individuals were cited by police officers after providing the beer to the teen.

A fire in a women’s restroom forced the brief evacuation of several City Hall offices Tuesday.

The fire in a restroom in the Quality of Life building at Redlands City Hall, 35 Cajon St., was reported at about 11:30 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 3. The fire forced the evacuation of the building for about 30 minutes. In addition to Quality of Life, the building also houses the Finance Department and IT offices as well as the City employees’ credit union.

An employee put out the fire with a fire extinguisher prior to arrival of the Fire Department. Employees were kept out of the building while firefighters cleared the building of smoke and ensured that it was safe to return. No injuries were reported.

DUI checkpoint, saturation and party patrols part of comprehensive initiative

Redlands Police arrested two people for driving under the influence during weekend alcohol enforcement operations, including a DUI/Drivers License checkpoint and targeted “saturation” patrols, part of the Redlands Police Department’s comprehensive Responsible Redlands initiative.

A total of 160 vehicles passed through the DUI checkpoint during the first hour Friday, Aug. 30, in the westbound lanes of Brookside Avenue at Grant Street before inclement weather caused the checkpoint to be shut down. Officers on grant-funded overtime continued a targeted “saturation” patrol for the remainder of the evening and arrested one person for driving under the influence. Officers also cited five drivers for violations including running stop signs, driving without a license and driving on a suspended license.

As part of the ongoing commemoration of the sesquicentennial of the American Civil War, the Lincoln Memorial Shrine is proud to collaborate with the University of Redlands to present a special symposium, “1863: The Turning Point.”

The two-day event will take place Saturday, Sept. 21, and Sunday, Sept. 22, at the University of Redlands Casa Loma Room, with a special reception and dinner on the evening of Sept. 21 at the Lincoln Memorial Shrine and A K Smiley Public Library in Redlands. Founded in 1932, the Lincoln Memorial Shrine is the only museum in the West dedicated to Abraham Lincoln and the Civil War.

 
 
RPD conducting a DUI checkpoint and extra patrols over holiday weekend

The Redlands Police Department, with the support of state agencies, including the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control and Office of Traffic Safety, San Bernardino County, and local community groups, launched a new initiative focusing on enforcement of alcohol laws and announced the first enforcement operations under the new initiative will be out in force this holiday weekend.

The new initiative—called Responsible Redlands—aims to curb the problems related to binge and underage drinking in Redlands in order to achieve a safer, healthier community. As part of this campaign, extra police patrols will be out in force this Labor Day weekend, including a DUI checkpoint, a saturation patrol to identify intoxicated drivers and a party patrol to catch Social Host Ordinance violations. Overall targets of the Responsible Redlands enforcement actions include alcohol retailers, bars, house parties and those driving under the influence of alcohol.

Several people had to be extricated from their vehicles after a multi-vehicle crash involving a wrong-way driver Wednesday morning on the westbound Interstate 10 between Wabash Avenue and Ford Street. All westbound lanes of the freeway were closed for approximately an hour.

Firefighters from Redlands and Yucaipa responded to the collision involving three vehicles at about 1:30 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 28. Victims from two of the vehicles were extracted using the Jaws of Life.

Redlands Police are seeking the public’s help in identifying the suspects who defrauded an elderly victim of $35,000 in cash last February.

The victim was flagged down in the parking lot of the Vons market at 522 Orange St. at about 10 a.m. on Feb. 5 of this year. The suspect told the woman that she needed help finding an address in town.

After gaining the victim’s trust, the suspect persuaded the victim to drive her to the Bank of America branch in Redlands and to withdraw $12,000. The victim then drove to another Bank of America branch in San Bernardino, where she withdrew another $23,000.

The City of Redlands continues to honor its hometown heroes – residents and their immediate family serving in the military – with banners displayed across the downtown. New banners will go on display this week, bringing the total to 104 put on display since the program began in time for Veterans Day 2011.

In 2011, the City Council approved the Hometown Heroes program, designed to recognize local residents actively serving in any branch of the U.S. Military.  Banners displayed on City lampposts include the name and photograph of the resident and the branch of the service in which the individual serves.
