Marjory L. Jacobs promoted to Captain

Selected by community leaders, County representatives and approved by Sheriff Alex Villanueva, Marjory Jacobs has been promoted to Captain of Altadena Sheriff’s Station. With a long and varied career in law enforcement, Jacobs fulfilled all the requirements of the Sheriff’s new Captain promotion process to be selected for this position.

Jacobs started her career in law enforcement with El Segundo Police Department in 1991 before transferring to the Sheriff’s Department in 1996 as a deputy at Pitchess Detention Center’s South Facility. She worked in several custody facilities as well as Palmdale Station and Force Training.

As a Sergeant, Jacob’s roles varied from line sergeant in a custody facility to field sergeant at multiple stations before serving as the bridge watch commander at Sheriff’s Communications Center.

When she promoted to lieutenant, Jacobs again took on a wide variety of duties. These included custody and station watch commander, operations lieutenant, Jail Transition Team lieutenant, Division Aide for Custody Services Division and most re- cently, Acting Captain at Pico Rivera Station.

Jacobs is actively involved in the law enforcement community as well as the communities in which she has served. She is the Vice President of Women Leaders of Law Enforcement of LA County, and a mentor for the El Rancho High School Team Court in Pico Rivera, just to name a few.

Always adding to her educational resume, Jacobs has an associate’s degree in General Education from College of the Canyons and a bachelor’s of science in Occupational Studies from California State University, Long Beach. She also is a graduate of the Supervisory Leadership Institute, Middle Management Course, Southern California Leadership Network, and the FBI National Academy.
When she is off-duty, Jacobs enjoys weight lifting, cycling, cooking, reading and spending time with her family, especially her sons.

As the unit commander of Altadena Station, Jacobs will oversee approximately 120 personnel, including a team of volunteer reserve deputies trained in mountain rescue who respond to calls in the mountains above the city. The station serves a diverse community, including businesses, residential neighborhoods and parts of the San Gabriel Mountains. Its jurisdiction spans over 8 square miles, including parts of unincorporated Pasadena. Jacobs will succeed Captain Vicky Stuckey, who retired in May, 2019.Image attachment

#CrimeTimeTuesday Law Enforcement Agencies Collaborate and Man is Sentenced to LWOP for 2010 Home Invasion Murders

#LASD, @HawthornePD, and @LAPDHQ investigated the brutal murders and home robberies of Hanna Marcos, Denice Roberts, and Leamon & Robyn Turnage between September 2010 and October 2010.  

John Wesley Ewell, a 62 year-old man pled no contest to four counts of first-degree murder and four counts of first-degree residential robbery in a negotiated plea agreement, which included admitting special circumstance allegation of murder during a residential robbery.  He was sentenced to life in state prison without the possibility of parole.    

September 24, 2010, Suspect Ewell broke into the Hawthorne home of 80 year-old Hanna Marcos.  Before he robbed her home, Ewell choked and hit Ms. Marcos causing her to have a heart attack resulting in her death.  

October 13, 2010, Ewell broke into, 53 year-old, Denice Roberts Los Angeles home and strangled her to death during the robbery.  

October 22, 2010, Ewell broke into the Hawthorne home of 69 year-old Leamon Turnage, and his 57 year-old wife, Robyn.  He robbed their house and then killed the couple by hitting and strangling them.  They were found bound.  

Detectives conducted an intensive investigation and doggedly followed all leads and John Wesley Ewell was taken into custody without incident.  Thanks to the combined effort and teamwork of the involved agencies, this dangerous suspect will no longer be able to violently victimize innocent members of society.

Additional Information and Links

The first 40 years of Altadena finds the fledgling community with no police force of its own. Policing was handled by the County Marshall in Pasadena. By 1927 Los Angeles County had planned to lease the building at 940 East Foothill Boulevard (now 924 East Altadena Drive) adjacent to what was then our Fire Station No. 11 of three years. Designated station no. 7, it was to become the headquarters for the northern division with substations at Temple, San Dimas and Newhall.

Altadena Sheriff’s Station No. 7 was opened with a staff of eight deputies, two per each eighthour shift and two in reserve. In 1930 the deputies moved to a more adequate facility at the northeast corner of Lake and Mariposa. By 1932 all Deputy Sheriffs were required to provide themselves with uniforms.

As early as 1928 the Altadena Sheriff’s Department was wire-linked to every county and state agency by teletype. With this system a National Criminal Advisory Network was made possible.

In 1933 one-way radio patrol cars were provided for all stations within the county. Altadena patrols were broadcast from the Pasadena police department. In 1936 a proposal was made to spend $14,275 on two-way patrol cars for the county. L. A. County sheriff Eugene Biscailuz’s own experience suggested that only $4,000 should be spent on a test system. Two portable transmitting units, one at Altadena and one at Montrose, and six cars were added to the county patrol. The test must have proven quite successful. In 1938, $1.8 million was approved for equipping Altadena and five other stations with two-way radio cars.

In July of 1948 ground clearing was under way for the new Altadena Civic Center at Foothill Boulevard (Altadena drive) and El Molino. This very corner would be the location of the new Altadena Sheriff’s Station. The new County Fire Station No. 11, built in 1955, would round out Civic Center at the corner south of the Sheriff Station. A spot was reserved between the two corners for a town hall, a proposed building for which was moved there in 1991. In 1957, the station received its first black-and-white patrol cars.

Through the 1970’s the Altadena Sheriff’s Station struggled along with a community that was undergoing a dramatic change in demographics. Altadena sheriff’s were initiating a neighborhood improvement plan (nip), which was being widely accepted by neighborhood groups with the intent of fighting neighborhood crime, such as burglaries, thefts, and vandalism. From teletypes to radio cars, the sheriffs entered the computer age by early 1987 with some of its earliest onboard computer systems. This early model “lapcop” system helped patrol officers in writing reports by eliminating the excessive paper work.

By summer 1987, through a plan of consolidation, the Altadena and Crescenta Valley (CV) stations merged, with the captain working from the CV “Substation” and Altadena becoming a local station under a Lieutenant. In October of 1999, the Altadena Station received its fullservice status, and its commander Ronnie Williams was promoted to captain to see the new station into the new millennium. By july 2001, the Altadena Station had completely separated from the partnership of Crescenta Valley Station and became finally a station unto itself, the Altadena Sheriff’s Station.

Captain Ronnie Williams, after six years at Altadena Station was succeeded by Captain Joe L. Gutierrez in April of 2002. In April 2010, our current Captain, Steven M. McLean took the helm and continues to serve as Commander of Altadena Station.
