Coffee With The Chief August


Lt Smith stood in for Chief Deanda for this months Coffee with the Chief.

Lt Smith statred off talking about National Night Out and the event was a success but they Lt. did talk about looking at how the event can combat decreasing attendance at the event.

Sgt Brochard talked about current staffing. Sgr Brochard said that Rialto Police is fully staffed on the sworn and non sworn side of things. He also talked about how difficult it is to vet, train and hire new police staff. He also spoke to the high level of training our officers have.

Cpl Russo spoke to traffic at rialto police. Last six months they have removed many DUI suspects from Rialto roads. The current OTS grant that the police department is using is $250,000. Right now the traffic department is fully staffed and they have added more training and now have new motor units to help reduce dangerous traffic situations. Cpl Russo said that they write tickets to stop people from making bad choices that eventually lead to traffic accidents. Cpl Russo and Lt Smith took questions from the audience about one dangerous intersection and they brainstomed possible solutions to the community concerns. Andy Carrzales asked about street light timing switching from one direction to another to reduce accidents from people pushing the light. Lt Smith said that they have pulled data on the Etiwanda Corridor due to their OTS grant and the Etiwanda improvement project.

Next Citizens Academy will begin  9-27-16 thru 11-29-16 applications can be recived at the front counter of the Rialto Police Station or by emailing Lt Smith at rsmith@rialtopd.com Joe Britt said that the Rialto Police Citizens Academy is a great reasource for residents to meet the movers and shakers and learn about your police agency.

Joe Britt also said the Police Deparment should package a training program  for other agencies to be better prepared for using cameras in their agency. Lt smith said that large agencies have come to learn from Rialto Police Department but by in large what works for Rialto wont work for Los Angeles or New York.

The Coffee event was a hit and well attended the dining area of the Coffee Nuttz was filled up and people overflowed into the Ice Cream section of the resturant.

Fontana Mayor Celebrates Drug Filled Rave As Three People Die

This weekend Fontana was busy, very busy. The city government planned their annual Fontana Arts Festival and their Sunset on Sierra events the same weekend the city ushered in the Hard Summer Music Festival. The Hard Summer Festival is a youth based rave/concert event that seems to exist for young people to get naked, high and drunk. Also the fact that this Music Fest has moved East due to the deaths of two event attendees in 2015 in Pamona would cause you to wonder why Fontana and San Bernardino County would host the event here? It all comes back to money and alot of it.

Well at least the event promoters Live Nation would learn from last years mistakes and work to create a safer environment for concert goers right? Nope according to a LA Times Article:

“Hard Summer, this year at the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, is at a turning point in its nine-year history. The two-day festival faced an uncertain future in 2015, after two fans died of drug overdoses. That led to local government demanding that the fest leave the Pomona Fairplex (the family of one of the overdose victims is suing Hard Summer and its parent firm, Live Nation).

But instead of scaling back, the festival moved a bit east, raised its ambitions (Saturday had an estimated 70,000 fans) and booked its most incendiary lineup to date.”

As you can see in the video above the mayor of Fontana is very excited to have a event such as this now in the city of Fontana. So it makes you wonder how much money a life is worth to Fontana Mayor Aquentta Warren. According to her estimations on the possible incoming tax revenue the event will bring about $11 Million each. We say this because the Fontana Herald released a story this morning that 3 people have been reported dead at this years Hard Summer event.

“Three people died while attending the HARD Summer Music Festival at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana on July 30 and 31, according to the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department.

One man and two women died, but the causes of death were not yet determined pending a coroner’s report, said Captain Horace Boatwright of the Fontana Sheriff’s Station. Two of the deaths were on Saturday and one on Sunday, he said.

Boatwright said there were a total of nine medical transports at the festival, which attracted 146,000 fans during the two-day event.

He said there were 325 arrests, mostly for public intoxication.

A total of 370 San Bernardino County Sheriff’s deputies were at the site, and 240 other law enforcement personnel were also there, Boatwright said.”

So three dead nine transported to the hospital and 370 arrests and that is acceptable? What type of message are our leaders sending to our young people? We spoke to former event security manager and public safety officer Duane who worked inside and outside of these events and he painted a dim picture.

“These events are used by most of the event attendees to use elicit drugs combined with alcohol and public sexual behavior. Most public safety agencies just can’t handle these events and in today’s culture of anti police mentality these events are even more difficult to control. We worked with staff that were tasked with sniffing out illegal substances at the Orange Show Electric Daisy Raves and even though they stopped massive amounts of drugs, alcohol and weapons substances made it into the venue regardless. Also parents of young ladies attending these events need to see the total lack of clothing that is worn at these events. Nothing about any times of rave is healthy for any community.” 

So the question is why would the county and city approve such an event? It all goes back to money.

Coffee With The Chief July 2016

On a beautiful July morning over 30 people all joined together to talk with Rialto’s Top Cop at Corkys Resturant in North Rialto. The community was joined by Police Chief Deanda, Police Captain Karol, Police Cpl Marquez and other Rialto PD staff.

Were going to give you some of the highlights but were going to send you to our Facebook page to watch the Live Video we shot of the entire meeting.

Chief Deanda went over the issues of added warehouses, the increase in traffic enforcement and the fact that every ranking member of the department is now trained and eligible to write grants to fund the work the police do. One of his examples of how grants work for Rialto citizens are the Pride Platoon, G.R.I.P. and the money we use to reduce dangerous driving through OTS grants.

Chief Deanda also spoke about the issues that come along with Marijuana use and the dangers and risks to society.
