Your Safety Is Our Primary Concern
Azusa Police Officers frequently train on the use of their vehicles during emergency situations and pursuits. In fact, you can read about some of that training by clicking here.
We would like to remind you that should you see a police pursuit approaching your vehicle as you travel on the roadway, please do not attempt to interfere or help us in any manner. The suspect's actions are un-predictable, and they do not adhere to the same rules of driving we do.
Secure Your Vehicle
Make sure to lock your doors and roll your windows up whenever you park your vehicle. Take the keys with you, also. You can't imagine how many auto thefts occur each year because people leave the keys in the ignition. Also, consider using a theft deterrent device, such as a steering wheel lock. Last, park in well lit and populated areas.
When a potentially dangerous situation evolves in the immediate vicinity of a school, we work closely with the Azusa Unified School District to make sure safety precautions are taken to ensure the safety of the students. Our first and foremost concern is for the safety of those students.
In the event you receive information that your child's school is on lock-down, please know that our department works diligently at keeping the school district appraised of the progress of the situation.
