The Long Beach Police Department has been awarded a $400,000 grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) for a year-long program of special enforcements and public awareness efforts to prevent traffic related deaths and injuries.
The Long Beach Police Department’s Vice Investigations Section, in cooperation with investigators from the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC), conducted an undercover operation throughout Long Beach on Monday, October 13, 2014.
Police seek help identifying these human sex trafficking suspects.
Human sex trafficking is the second largest international crime industry (behind illegal drugs) and reportedly generates profits of nearly $32 billion dollars each year.
The Long Beach Police Department will once again join forces with Long Beach Memorial to participate in the Drug Enforcement Administration’s (DEA) National Pharmaceutical Take-Back initiative, along with several other law enforcement agencies around the nation.
Saturday, the Long Beach Police Department was notified a person involved in a collision with a Los Angeles Metro Blue Line train last Friday has died. Robert Lee Mills, an 89-year-old resident of Signal Hill, had sufferd major injuries from the collision and was pronounced deceased early this morning.
Long Beach Police arrested a male suspect in connection with a sexual assault that occurred in the area of Falcon Avenue and East Ocean Boulevard, and charges have been filed.
On September 7, 2014, around 5:00 a.m., an adult female victim reported that an intruder entered her residence through an open window and sexually assaulted her.
The Long Beach Police Department Traffic Section will be conducting a DUI/Driver’s License Checkpoint on Saturday, September 6, 2014, in North Long Beach between the hours of 7:00 p.m. and 3:00 a.m.
The deterrent effect of DUI checkpoints is a proven resource in reducing the number of persons killed and injured in alcohol or drug involved crashes.
The Long Beach Police Department would like to remind everyone that with school beginning on Wednesday, September 3, 2014, and with the volume of pedestrian traffic around schools increasing dramatically, all commuters are encouraged to practice the following safety tips in an effort to prevent avoidable accidents:
All drivers are reminded to:
Yield the right of way to pedestrians in marked or unmarked crosswalks
Not overtake and pass a vehicle stopped ahead of you when it has stopped for a pedestrian
Yield the right of way to pedestrians on sidewalks
Obey posted speed limits
Never drive while distracted (examples: using a cell phone, reading, applying make-up, etc.)
Stop and remain stopped for school buses with “flashing red lights;” opposing traffic must also stop unless a painted or raised divider separates the roadway
Watch and obey Crossing Guards … they are there to protect children!
On August 29, 2014, at approximately 10:35 p.m., Long Beach Police responded to the San Gabriel Riverbed near Pacific Coast Highway to investigate a report of a sexual assault that occurred to a 40-year-old female from Seal Beach, which resulted in the arrest of a male adult.
The Long Beach Police Department will conduct a specialized Motorcycle Safety Enforcement Operation on August 16 and August 17, 2014, in an effort to lower deaths and injuries. Extra officers will be on duty patrolling areas frequented by motorcyclists and where motorcycle crashes occur.
