Altadena sheriffs be like... “NOT IN MY HOUSE!” Police 🚔 👮 👮‍♀️🥾🔒

It always amazes me when folks leave personal items in unlocked vehicles. You are essentially asking for someone to steal your property. Does not make sense!

So what is the controlled substance ?

The scammers are at it again!

#ICYMI

The scammers are at it again!

Los Angeles County residents have been receiving phone calls from alleged Los Angeles County Sheriff’s personnel. The caller states that they are from the Sheriff’s Department and that the victim must pay a sum of money in order for a warrant in their name to be cleared.

We all receive Jury Duty summons via U.S. mail at some point or another. All jury summons for the County of Los Angeles are mailed via the U.S. postal service. No government office would ever call a resident advising them of a missed jury duty appearance. If you receive a phone call regarding a missed a jury duty appearance date, BEWARE it’s a scam.

This scam may be a bit intimidating because the person on the other end of the call pretends to be a law enforcement representative, when in fact it’s a scammer who will demand payment to stop a warrant from being issued for the missed jury duty.

How this scam works:

• Residents will receive a phone call from an individual claiming to be law enforcement officer (such as a Deputy Sheriff) or court personnel saying they’ve missed jury duty — and inform them they must pay. These scammers may go as far as to identify themselves as the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department or another specific law enforcement agency.

• These criminals request immediate payment to avoid issuing a warrant related to missed Jury Duty. These payments have ranged from a few hundred dollars to thousands of dollars.

• The scammers instruct the victim to make a payment using a pre-paid card such as "Green Dot" typically purchased at your local retail store. The scammer then requests the number on the back of the “Great Dot” card so they can steal the funds from the cards.

If you receive such a phone call, do not give any personal, credit card, or banking information. If you do become a victim of this scam, contact law enforcement immediately.

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.
