Do you live East of Garey and North of Holt?

If you live East of Garey and North of Holt, you will want to attend this month's community meeting with the Pomona Police Department. The meeting is slated for Tuesday, June 9 at 7 PM in Council Chambers (thank you, Ed, for gently pointing out the absence of date and time info in the original post!). Lieutenant Rilloraza, the Watch Commander for this quadrant of our city, will discuss local issues specific to this area. That's right, this meeting offers us a chance to talk to _the_ guy in charge of supervising and coordinating policing efforts in our area.

Now, here's the really exciting part, Lt. Rilloraza stands ready to address any concerns you bring to his awareness. All you have to do is let him know about the concern before the meeting so he can pull the information he needs to provide as thorough a response as possible. How do you contact him, you may ask? You've got options.

1. You can leave a detailed message at the Watch Commander desk: 909-620-2151.

2. You can leave a comment here and I'll forward any comments received by Friday, June 5 to Lt. Rilloraza.

3. The flier distributed by the PD announcing this meeting offers another mechanism for improving communications, but -- ironically -- it is unclear whether they recommend this mechanism for communicating with our Watch Commanders or just contacting the city in general. I suspect the latter, but can't figure out why the info would appear on a flier about the former unless it is in fact relevant. So, here goes:

  1. I've yet to put this regular meeting in my calendar.....when is it scheduled? Thanks for posting.

  2. Argh! What a space case -- I'm sorry I neglected to include date and time info in the original post. I just edited the post to include the info: Tuesday, June 9 at 7 PM in Council Chambers. Thanks!

  3. I'd love to hear about how this meeting went. If you have anything interesting let me know! dlucko @ gmail.com
