Temple Station Launches New
E-Mail Crime Reporting Program
In an effort to improve our crime
prevention abilities and provide the public with a computer assisted
method to relay information, Temple Station has recently launched a
new e-mail crime reporting program. The program is designed to
receive the type of information that has been provided to the
"We Tip" type telephone reporting programs for many years.
Users of this e-mail system are being asked to report problems in
their neighborhoods such as gang hangouts, suspected locations where
drugs are being sold, the locations of wanted individuals, or any
other information they may want law enforcement to be aware of.
This e-mail reporting system is not designed to replace the
telephonic reporting of crimes in progress or whenever a timely law
enforcement response is needed. All e-mail messages received
will be read on a daily basis and may be sent anonymously.
The following e-mail address has been
established for residents, businesses and anyone else wishing to
bring information to the Sheriff Department's attention:
In this day and age of such
widespread use of e-mails, the Sheriff Department feels this
approach is a modern common sense augmentation to existing crime
prevention reporting programs and will strengthen our partnership
with the community.
If you have any questions about the
program, please contact Captain Richard Shaw or Lieutenant Sheila
Sanchez at Temple Station, 8838 Las Tunas Drive, Temple City, CA
91780 or by calling (626) 292-3300.
