Rialto Pride Platoon

When I first saw the flyer for this program I said right program just in time. As someone who is constantly pushing our community leaders to act proactively in addressing crime not just reacting to it and the painful results.

I remember having a Neighborhood Watch meeting in a local park. While we were holding the meeting a group of male teens walked up and ask Lt Craig Crispin (now retired) what was going on? Why do these people care? How do I become an explorer with the police and fire departments?

Awesome questions and what a person to ask for some reason he came prepared without even knowing it and sent them in the right direction.

So many of our youth are being raised by parents that aren’t there. The ones that are there either lack morals or are afraid to be real parents.

This program is awesome and here is the details:

to join:
The platoon is open to Rialto children from 14 to 17 years old. Occasionally,
police will accept applications for 13 year olds.The next session begins in late April. To enroll, call Sgt. Dean Hardin at
909-820-2634 or Jeanette Lopez, 820-2565.

    My son Avery, was given the ultimatum by the school to join the pride platoon about a year ago, he did not want to accept. I was forced to make him join against his pleading wishes. He disliked me for making the choice, but I held my ground. Before starting the program my son was ditching school , getting poor grades , making poor choices and seemed to have no direction, regardless of what I did. Im a very stern, forceful and demanding father, having my charecter tested by my son made it hard to get along with him. im very happy and proud to say that soon after the program my son started changing, he seemed more helpful and approachable. The program also taught me how to communicate with my son and helped me to understand him better. Thanks to all the officers involved, and the rialto police dept, my son is now dedicated to graduating high school, working hard on getting his drivers license, and most of all being able to show love and respect to his dad……thanks.
