𝐂𝐨𝐧𝐠𝐫𝐚𝐭𝐮𝐥𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐬 𝐃𝐞𝐭𝐞𝐜𝐭𝐢𝐯𝐞 𝐏𝐫𝐮𝐢𝐭𝐭 !! Today, after 31 incredible years of dedication and service to the department and community, Detective Laurie Pruitt is officially retired.

For the last 6 years of her career, Laurie worked in the Detective Bureau assigned to the Special Victims Unit. She worked a multitude of investigations in different topics and so much more. Whatever needed to be done to help the victim(s) or her partners, she was always ready and willing. Laurie you will be truly missed but we are so happy for you. This retirement is well deserved.

Officer Salas gathering information from a victim who had his vehicle stolen the night prior. Having more detailed and specific information allows officers to effectively search for evidence, such a surveillance cameras, in the area. Some of this evidentiary information can be vital for solving the reported crime. 🔍 ••• #Investigation #Community #Safety #LawEnforcement #SeeSomethingSaySomething #Officers #WestCovina #WCPD #WestCovinaPD #DayWatch #GTA

Recently, WCPD personnel assisted the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department executive a search warrant on a location after receiving information that an illegal gambling operation was being conducted. Officers responded to a location on the 1600 block of West Delhaven and located several gambling machines and a firearm. Several individuals were arrested. The machines and firearm were confiscated. We want to thank all those who provided tips/information on this illegal operation. ••• #SearchWarrant #Investigation #Illegal #Gambling #Sheriff #LosAngeles #LASD #Partners #Community #Safety #LawEnforcement #SeeSomethingSaySomething #Officers #WestCovina #WCPD

Last week, Officer Ledesma and Officer Waidley responded to a location regarding a found child who had been crying for a long period of time. On arrival, officers determined the 6-year-old was left unattended inside an apartment. His mother was eventually located and showed signs of intoxication. She was arrested without incident and her son was taken into protective services. We want to thank the individuals who contacted us, and stayed with the boy, making sure he was safe, warm and taken care of until officers arrived. ••• #Partners #NightWatch #Patrol #Work #Officers #LawEnforcement #WestCovina #WCPD #WestCovinaPD #Community #Safety

Officer Sanchez responding to a call for service, speaking with the reporting party and gathering information. 

The reporting party stated that she had left the residence and received a surveillance camera activation of an unknown male that was in the area and looked over into her enclosed patio area. Officer Sanchez arrived and searched the area for the unknown male but he was not located. Officer Sanchez conducted a home check as well before the resident/reporting party arrived to make sure nothing was disturbed. Thankfully the home was secured and no items were stolen or disturbed. 

This a reminder to all, whether you leave your home or you are staying in, please make sure doors and windows are locked and secured, look into a security/surveillance system, and call your local department if you see anything or anyone acting suspicious in your neighborhood. 

For West Covina: Non-emergencies, 626-939-8500. Emergencies, 9-1-1.
