Updated information regarding the contact information:
If there is a break-in to your mailbox and your mail is stolen (regular break-in) you will need to contact the Postal Inspection Service.

If you experience vandalism to your mailbox you will need to contact the police department.

CRIME TIP: We have had a sudden increase of mailbox break-ins.
Remove your mail each day don't allow your box to be an easy target

Remove your mail each day don’t allow your box to be an easy target

Most break-ins occur during the evening or middle of the night. You can help reduce these incidents by EMPTYING YOUR …MAILBOX EVERY DAY before the evening ends.
All to common throughout the Inland Empire

If everyone does this, those responsible will find that they are not having luck finding mail in the boxes and will go elsewhere. Regular break-ins have to regularly be reported by contacting the Postal Inspection Service directly at 1877-USMAIL5 or by visiting https://postalinspectors.uspis.gov/.  The more reports they receive the more attention it will bring and place it as a priority.  Also, by providing an address it helps them track the areas and perhaps isolate certain areas which they need to focus on. Another option, which may not be feasible for all is renting a Post Office Box at Post Office, 241 W. Rialto Avenue.  The small P.O. Boxes are only $39 for 6 months – less than $8.00 a month.
If you contact Supervisor Gary Rico, he will add one free month to your first six-month rental.

Crime Tip – How to Avoid being Skimmed at your ATM

CRIME TIP: How to Avoid being Skimmed
– Inspect the ATM, gas pump, or credit card reader before using it…be suspicious if you see anything loose, crooked, or damaged, or if you notice scratches or adhesive/tape residue.
– When entering your PIN, block the keypad with your other hand to prevent possible hidden cameras from recording your number.
– If possible, use an ATM at an inside location (less access for criminals to install skimmers).
– Be careful of ATMs in tourist areas…they are a popular target of skimmers.
– If your card isn’t returned after the transaction or after hitting “cancel,” immediately contact the financial institution that issued the card.

Coffee with the Chief February

Come out to this month’s coffee with a chief. This month it will be located at Carrows Restaurant on Baseline Ave.

I have found this event as a great way to connect with Rialto’s Top Cop and learn what’s going on within the confines of police work in Rialto.

Chief Tony Farrar has worked tirelessly to put together programs that help his police make Rialto a place to learn, live, work and play. Command staff that normally attends these meetings is Cap. Deanda, Lt. Karol and Community Liaison Officer Cpl. Neilson.

If you have a desire to know what’s going on you should attend.

If you have questions regarding Rialto’s Law Enforcement you should attend.

If you live, work, own a business or rental property you should attend.

See the Image below for details and we will see you there.
