Community: Captain Christopher Reed
departing Altadena Station for Sheriff's Information Bureau, welcomes
incoming Captain Vicki Stuckey

Captain Christopher Reed is departing Altadena Station, transferring
to Sheriff's Information Bureau, the Sheriff's Department's media
headquarters, effective Sunday, October 11, 2015.  Replacing Captain
Reed at Altadena Station is Captain Vicki Stuckey, pictured with
Captain Reed who gave her a warm welcome to her new command.  Captain
Stuckey brings with her more than 30 years of law enforcement experience,
most of her time being spent at various patrol stations throughout the
County, including Norwalk, Compton, and Lomita Stations.

Reflecting on his time at Altadena Station, Captain Reed pointed to several
noteworthy achievements by Altadena Station Deputies and his
management team during his tenure, including:

- Reducing overall Part I crimes by over 18% in 2014 as compared to

- Building on last year's crime reduction, overall Part I crimes have
been reduced an additional 17% year to date this year, with a nearly 50%
reduction as compared to 5 years ago

- Enhancements to Altadena's deployment model, moving away from
strictly fielding two-person units on the swing and overnight shifts,
adding more one-person units, essentially doubling the cars available on
those shifts to handle calls for service, resulting in significant
reduction in response times

- Establishment of a 4-person Problem Specific Policing Team to deal
with long-term issues in the community with an emphasis on proactive
enforcement and crime reduction

- Expansion of the Reserve Deputy Program, recruiting and adding 7
additional Uniformed Reserve Deputies to the Station's complement who
have full peace officer powers and work for the community essentially as
volunteers, earning $1 per year

- Re-establishment of the Sheriff's Explorer Program, with 9
station explorers, giving local youth an opportunity to volunteer in the
community and partner with deputies working special events and participating
in ride-a-longs

- Significant expansion of our Community Policing Programs,
instituting both foot patrols and bicycle patrols in the business
corridors of Altadena

Captain Reed wishes to express his heartfelt gratitude for all of the
community support the station and it's hard-working deputies have
received during his tenure.  He is equally thankful for the
tremendous support the station has received from the 5th District,
Supervisor Michael Antonovich and his staff, as well as the Altadena
Town Council, the Sheriff's Support Group of Altadena, and the station's
Community Advisory Council.

We welcome Captain Stuckey to the station who brings a great deal of
enthusiasm with her, intent on keeping Altadena Beautiful!
