Well its that time again time for the Area Command Meetings. First up areas 1 & 2 and its at the same location that seems to work best for both areas Sunrise Church on Ayala & Riverside Aves. Sunrise is an awesome location and the church has been very good to the community in offering this space.
The location of Area Command meetings for areas 3 & 4 is St. Catherine of Siena Church on Sycamore just south of Foothill. The location of this meeting seems to change each time to possibly look for a location that works best for people in the 3 & 4 areas.
Every series of meetings their is a special presentation on a different facet of the Police Department. This is done because studies have shown the more understanding you have of a department or organization the better it is for the consumer and the producer.
This month Rialto Police bring you Cpl. Marquez and the RRST (Rialto Re-entry Support Team). This team is tasked with making sure people paroled to Rialto re-enter our communities without damage to the law abiding community members and also offers supports and programs for those really looking to make a change. They also deal with our influx of AB 109 early release population. AB 109 is Governor Browns failed attempt at reducing the stress on our prison system and moving criminals into our neighborhoods. This will be a great presentation and most presentations offer an opportunity for questions so come with your questions. Also they will be going over this summers events and activities.
The Area Command Program has improved each and every year it brings the concept of COP (Community Oriented Policing) to reality. Resources from all over the city are available and their is a full table of flyers and program applications to assist Rialto residents.
Also the Rialto Community Coalition will be asking people to take a survey on prescription drugs. These surveys assist them in making sure they are talking issues in a way that they will impact the community at large in a positive way.
