SDPD Donates Out-Of-Pocket To Save Family’s Christmas

Earlier this week, a Grinch nearly ruined Christmas for a Claremont family, after breaking into their home and stealing all of the presents.

The thieves gained entry to the apartment through a window, according police, and proceeded to unwrap all the gifts and steal the ones they liked most.  They also ran off with the family's home computer.

Officers said that inexpensive items, such as clothes, socks and a soccer ball were the only things the wrongdoers left behind.

A spokesperson for the San Diego Police Department said they were saddened for the family, especially the children, and decided to take matters …

The True Cost Of DUI Is Much Higher Than You Think

People who chose to drive while under the influence of alcohol or drugs are not only putting themselves, and others at risk; if they are arrested they could find themselves being buried under a pile of crippling debt.

Although many places in California will release first-time drunk drivers on their own recognizance, some places, such as the San Diego Central Jail, always require that a defendant post bail bonds.

Bail for this offense can be as low as $2,500 or as high as $100,000 depending on what happened during the arrest.  If the defendant got into an accident where another person …

CA Jails Report A Spike In Drug Smuggling Efforts

Jails throughout the country have always had problems with people trying to smuggle drugs into their facilities but now, California lock ups say that some parolees are getting rearrested in hopes of being able to bring contraband in themselves.

It all started when the prisoner realignment program started, they said, when the state ordered certain low-level offenders serve their sentences at local facilities as opposed to state prisons.

County jails quickly became overcrowded as a result and in some cases, people who are arrested on parole violations are only serving 10 days before being tossed back out on the street.

Criminals, they …

Retaining San Diego’s Finest Will Cost Dollars & Makes Sense

Upward of 300 officers have left the SDPD in the past 9 years
A recent editorial in America's Finest City's seems to have pointed out the obvious:  San Diego Police Department officers are not only underpaid, they're among the least paid in the state.

Recruiting and training efforts have done little to help.  At best, according to sources, the only thing it has accomplished involves maintaining the rate of spin on the staffing-revolving-door.

Bring new in officers, providing trained, while qualified and experienced employees run for the hills after getting offers for positions with better hours, pay and compensation packages.

Upward of 300 …

Theives Hit Car On Freeway Offramp, Then Carjack It

Sources within the San Diego Police Department say a local couple was quite frazzled last weekend after three suspects crashed into their car and then carjacked them.

The incident took place just before 10 p.m. on Saturday night, they said, when the couple was getting off Interstate 5 at the Nobel Drive offramp.

The driver of that car pulled over to exchange insurance information with the vehicle that struck them.  That's when one of the passengers of the other vehicle stepped out, pulled a gun and ordered the couple to hand over their keys, wallets and cell phones.  The woman's purse …

SD Jails Say The Veterans Unit Is A Success

In late 2013, the San Diego Jails did something unusual;  they created a separate unit aimed toward rehabilitating veterans who had found themselves on the wrong side of the law.

The walls are painted patriotic colors and armed forces banners are hung throughout the common areas.

At the Vista Detention Facility, a retired marine who volunteers at the jail tells the inmates that they served their country, they are special, and he doesn't want to see them back behind bars after their sentences are up.

From there, he made them each raise their right hand and vow to stay on the straight …

Suspected Drunk Driver Hits SDPD Squad Car At Checkpoint

A San Diego resident's bad night got a heck of a lot worse last weekend after they crashed their car into a SDPD police cruiser at a Pacific Beach checkpoint.

Two other cars were also struck during the accident, according to a department spokesperson.  No one was injured, they said, although the driver was taken into custody and charged with felony drunk driving.

Although most first-time DUI arrests in San Diego require the defendant post $2,500 bail bonds in order to be released from custody that bail amount can jump to $100,000 or more if the driver was in an accident.

The …

New Bail Scam Hits San Diego County

At this point, it seems like every time you turn around con artists have come up with another bail bonds scam.

Earlier this year, law enforcement agencies on the East Coast were tipped off that unsavory individuals were pretending to be calling on behalf of the sheriff's or police department, telling whoever happened to answer that if they didn't buy bail bonds by phone right then and there, an arrest warrant would be issued in their name.

Although a similar version of this ploy has been making its rounds throughout the nation the latest seems to involve bail bonds at the …

SDPD Staffing Woes Continue To Worsen

It's been no great secret that the San Diego Police Department has a staffing problem on its hands.  One, more and more officers are approaching retirement age.   Two, newly trained rookies are being wooed to smaller departments in the county as soon as they are out of the police academy.

The San Diego Sheriff's and the National City PD are among those who are offering signing bonuses and better pay.

Today, sources close to the SDPD says their already bad problem seems to have taken a turn for the worse.

The number of officers leaving the department on a monthly basis is …

San Diego Schools Get Armored Vehicle

A spokesperson for the San Diego Unified School District has confirmed that SDUSD has received an armored vehicle thanks to military surplus program.

The tank, which is not unlike military vehicles that have been used in the middle east during the Iraq War, is able to drive through barricades and can also withstand explosives.

SWAT teams throughout the US often use similar types of armored cars and are able to acquire them through an "Excess property program" that's run by the Department of Defense.  Ultimately, it provides unneeded military equipment to law enforcement agencies at zero cost.

Representatives from SBUSD say the …
