The Redlands Police Department, along with other local police departments, continues to receive regular reports of fraudulent activities including one referred to as the Grandparent Scam and another in which the victim is told there is a warrant for his or her arrest. The following information is provided to help you recognize and protect yourself and your family members from these scams.

The Redlands Police Department will join law enforcement agencies throughout California stepping up DUI enforcement at the end of the traditional summer season through Labor Day – Aug. 16 through Sept. 2.  During the crackdown period, there will be an increase in law enforcement presence on the roads, including additional officers and DUI checkpoints throughout the state, and those caught driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs will be arrested. 

The Redlands Police Department Traffic Unit will conduct a DUI/Drivers License Checkpoint on Friday, Aug. 16, at in the southbound lanes of Cajon Street at Cypress Avenue between the hours of 7 p.m. and midnight.  The California Office of Traffic Safety is reminding Californians to plan ahead during the crackdown and every day by designating a sober driver.

Redlands Firefighters battled a structure fire at a single-family residence in the 1500 block of Smiley Heights Drive Thursday. No one was injured in the blaze.

The fire was reported shortly after 12:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 8. Firefighters arrived minutes later to find heavy smoke and fire coming from the residence. One resident was home at the time, saw smoke and escaped before emergency responders arrived.

Fire crews from Redlands, Loma Linda and the City of San Bernardino responded to the fire. A total of seven engines, a medic squad, two truck companies, three chief officers and a Fire Department chaplain – 32 personnel – responded to the blaze along with police who assisted with traffic control.

Redlands Firefighters battled a structure fire at a single-family residence in the 800 block of Merced Street Tuesday night. No one was injured in the blaze, which was contained primarily to the garage.

The fire was reported shortly after 10 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 6, when a resident went into the garage of the single-story structure and discovered heavy smoke. She alerted her husband and children and all residents escaped along with the family’s two dogs. Two cats are unaccounted for.

A total of five engines, a medic squad, a truck company, two chief officers and a Fire Department chaplain – 21 personnel – responded to the blaze along with police and Citizen Volunteer Patrol who assisted with traffic control. At one point the flames were visible from Mentone.

Construction will begin next week on the 2013 water pipeline replacement project.  The scope of work for this capital improvement project is the installation of 8,300 linear feet of 8-inch pipeline and the resurfacing of selected streets and associated concrete work.  

Streets that will be impacted by this work include Jasper Avenue between San Bernardino Avenue and Capri Avenue, College Avenue and Campus Avenue between Grove Street and Judson Street, Brookdale Drive from Brookside Avenue to the cul-de-sac, Barbra Lane, Occidental Drive, Devon Place and portions of Doyle Avenue.  These pipelines are being replaced due to age and frequency of leaks.  Construction on this project will begin the week of Aug. 12 and be completed in November 2013.

Redlands Police arrested one person for driving under the influence during a DUI/drivers license checkpoint Friday, Aug. 2.

A total of 498 vehicles passed through the checkpoint in the northbound lanes of Orange Street north of Pennsylvania Avenue between 7 p.m. and midnight Friday. In addition to the DUI arrest, two drivers were cited for driving without a license and another two for driving with a license that had been suspended or revoked.

Redlands Police honored one officer on his retirement following a 24-year career in law enforcement, welcomed four new police officers and a civilian crime analyst to the department, pinned a new corporal’s badge to a newly promoted officer and paid tribute to a local resident for assisting police and to another officer and two dispatchers for their role in saving the life of a suicidal man, during a recognition ceremony last week.

The ceremony was held Thursday morning, July 25, at the Redlands Police Annex. After the opening invocation and pledge, Commander Chris Catren called recently retired Officer Steve Smith to the stage where Police Chief Mark Garcia presented him a plaque honoring his 24 years in law enforcement. Before the presentation, an End of Watch announcement was broadcast to officers over the radio by a Redlands Police dispatcher.

Smith began his career with the Redlands Police Department as a Reserve Officer on Feb. 28, 1989. He was hired as a full-time officer on Nov. 5, 1990. Smith graduated from the Orange County Sheriff’s Department Academy in April 1991. During his law enforcement career, Smith served as a patrol officer, gang suppression officer, community policing officer, Cops-N-Jocks coordinator, school resource officer, traffic officer, motor officer and a downtown community policing officer and received numerous commendations and awards. Smith obtained his Advanced Police Officer Standards and Training certificate in 2000 and earned his Bachelor of Science degree in criminal justice administration in September 2010.

The City of Redlands will host its first CERT course of 2013. The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations.

Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT members can assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help. CERT members also are encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking a more active role in emergency preparedness projects in their community.

The Redlands Police Department Traffic Unit will conduct a DUI/drivers license checkpoint from 7 p.m. until midnight Friday, Aug. 2, in the northbound lanes of Orange Street north of Pennsylvania Avenue.

Officers will contact drivers passing through Friday’s checkpoint looking for signs of alcohol and/or drug impairment.  Officers will also check drivers for proper licensing and will strive to delay motorists only momentarily.  When possible, specially trained officers will be available to evaluate those suspected of drug-impaired driving.

The City of Redlands will sponsor a low cost dog licensing and rabies vaccination clinic in the park next to the Redlands Police Annex (Old City Hall), 30 Cajon St., on Wednesday, Aug. 7 from 6 to 7:30 p.m.

Pet owners may bring their pets to the northwest corner of Cajon and Vine, across the street from the Redlands Civic Center. Parking is available on Vine Street. All dogs must be on a leash. All cats must be transported in a carrier.

Rabies shots are $8. Licenses are $16 with a spay or neuter certificate. Pet licenses without a spay or neuter certificate are $23.
