To those protesting at South LA Sheriff’s Station:

We support the community wanting to protest, to peacefully exercise their 1st Amendment rights. However, we are concerned there are individuals from outside of the community, and state, wanting to incite riots. Those individuals have already committed acts of vandalism, looting and assaults utilizing rocks, pipes and mortars.

Everyone’s public safety is our priority. If you are in the area, please be aware of your surroundings so that you are not hurt by those inciting violence.

A statement from Sheriff Alex Villanueva:

INSPECTOR GENERAL WAS NOT EXCLUDED FROM AUTOPSY, HE FAILED TO MAKE ARRANGEMENTS AND IS LOOKING TO BLAME OTHERS

September 4, 2020

On September 3, 2020, Mr. Huntsman claimed on a Twitter post, “The Sheriff’s Department had gone ahead, down to the autopsy, had it scheduled and been present without telling us.”
https://twitter.com/LeonardFiles/status/1301758309997961216

Unfortunately, and yet once again, the inspector general has added to his long history of selectively omitting facts which are unfavorable to his position. In line with his well-established pattern of disinformation, he continues to sow the seeds of division between law enforcement and the community.

In this most recent example, he has attempted to distort reality in order to make excuses to the Board of Supervisors and the Civilian Oversight Commission for his own administrative incompetence in failing to make provisions for his attendance at the autopsy of Mr. Dijon Kizzee.

As is the standard operational procedure, the Los Angeles County Department of the Medical Examiner-Coroner (DME) scheduled the date and time for this autopsy. The DME is in full and complete control of the entire process, as has always been the case and common sense would dictate. Homicide investigators were given a two-hour notice of the scheduled procedure and attended the autopsy as a component of the on-going criminal investigation.

Permission to be present at an autopsy is granted, and notice is made, by DME, not the investigative agency. The LASD does not “include” or “exclude” anyone from the Medical Examiner-Coroner’s autopsy. It is not under our authority or control to do so.

Mr. Huntsman’s recent statements are disingenuous and seriously bring into question his intellectual honesty, as he is well aware of the standard protocol. He was present for the autopsy of Mr. Andres Guardado and arranged his own notification for attendance through DME, as is appropriate and expected. His attendance was not arranged through the LASD. If he intended to attend this autopsy, he should have followed the same procedure he did previously.

Mr. Huntsman’s most recent statements are simply the latest installment in his pattern of unsubstantiated and inflammatory remarks designed to bring discredit to, and unfairly harm, the Department. Mr. Huntsman needs to accept responsibility for his lack of preparation and apologize for trying to blame others for his blunders.

Our Department wants to be a partner in fair oversight, but this is not occurring with the current inspector general.

Go Safely, California: September is Pedestrian Safety Month

September is Pedestrian Safety Month and the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department will join law enforcement agencies across the state to educate the public on how to be safe when walking or driving.

While the COVID-19 pandemic and wildfire emergencies have had an impact on Californians, the safety of pedestrians remains a cause for concern.

Since 2009, the number of pedestrians killed or injured on California roads has increased dramatically, accounting for nearly 25% of all roadway deaths. A report released earlier this year by the Governors Highway Association (GHSA) projected that pedestrian deaths in 2019 reached the highest point in more than 30 years.

“More people are out walking, exercising and doing what they can to spend a little time outdoors after spending so much time inside staying at home,” Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, Sergeant, Robert Hill said. “Looking out for one another is the least we can do during these difficult times.”

For the safety of everyone walking or driving, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department will have additional deputies on patrol throughout the month of September specifically looking for violations made by drivers and pedestrians that make roads unsafe.

These violations include speeding, illegal turns, failure to yield, not stopping for signs or signals, and pedestrians who do not cross in marked crosswalks or designated crossing areas.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department offers steps drivers and pedestrians can take to be safe:

Pedestrians
• Ditch the distractions. Keep your eyes up and phones down, especially when crossing the street.
• Always use marked crosswalks, preferably at stop signs or signals.
• Make eye contact and nod or wave at drivers. A quick nod or wave is an easy way to let a driver know you see them, and they see you.
• Be extra careful crossing streets or entering crosswalks at night when it is harder to see. Get in the habit of walking with a flashlight or wearing a reflective vest so it is easier for drivers to spot you.
• If you need to briefly walk into the street to maintain social distancing on sidewalks, remember to look both ways for cars.

Drivers
• Slow down on busy streets and at intersections.
• Avoid distractions, which includes cell phones, eating, using in-dash touch screens, or turning to talk to passengers.
• Be extra careful approaching crosswalks. Be prepared to stop for pedestrians. Stop prior to the crosswalk.
• Try to avoid blocking the crosswalk when making a right-hand turn.
• Have your headlights on and slow down at night when pedestrians are difficult to see.

Funding for this program is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

With the upcoming Labor Day weekend, Crescenta Valley Station wants to remind everyone to obey the speed limit and give yourself enough time to safely get to your destination. We will be stepping up traffic enforcement this weekend, especially on Angeles Crest Highway in La Cañada Flintridge. In fact, we have extra enforcement each weekend on Angeles Crest Highway.

During the vehicle over the side call, Crescenta Valley Station Deputies helped provide traffic control. The road had to be temporarily shut down as LASD - Montrose Search and Rescue Team and Los Angeles County Fire Department worked to help the patient. Unfortunately, this caused a small back up on Angeles Crest Hwy. While most motorists patiently waited, one driver thought it would be okay to cross the double yellow line and drive the wrong way to pass all the stopped traffic. Luckily, Deputy Clark was able to safely stop the driver before an accident occurred. The driver was cited. Driving on the wrong side of Angeles Crest Highway is dangerous and can cause a major accident. Please give yourself time to get to your destination safely. #LASD
