Advisory: Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Remains at a Heightened State of Vigilance following Las Vegas Mass Shooting
 
Shortly after the shooting began, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department (LASD) was notified of the incident and immediately activated the Department Operations Center (DOC). Sheriff Jim McDonnell reached out to Las Vegas Sheriff Joe Lombardo and offered the LASD’s immediate assistance with the ongoing incident.

Initial reports indicated there were multiple shooters, in numerous locations throughout Las Vegas, armed with automatic weapons and randomly shooting at the public. Sheriff McDonnell ordered the activation of a response team to include the Department’s Special Enforcement Bureau (SWAT teams), Emergency Services Detail (Rescue Paramedics), Aero Bureau, and Arson and Explosives Detail (Bomb Squad). The Department’s “Air 5” Super Puma helicopter was readied for potential rapid deployment needs. All Sheriff’s Stations throughout the county were placed on standby, for any response that might be needed within the county or beyond.

As events unfolded, it was determined that a single shooter was responsible. The Las Vegas Metro SWAT team found the suspect. The suspect is dead. LASD resources remained available throughout the night. We were in constant contact with Sheriff Lombardo and his staff. LASD command staff is embedded at the command post in Las Vegas.

A Sheriff’s conference call was initiated at 1:30am for senior LASD command staff, to ensure a situational awareness of the current situation in Las Vegas and to have the appropriate state of department preparedness.

The Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department is confirming that off-duty personnel were attending the music festival at the time of the shooting. Two members of the LASD were hit by gunfire. Both were transported to a local hospital, where one remains in critical condition and the other is in stable condition. We are not releasing the names of the two injured personnel at this time. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the families and victims of this horrific mass shooting.

The LASD Criminal Intelligence Bureau, the Emergency Operations Bureau and Department Operations Center are also monitoring potential new information or developments.

We ask the public to remain vigilant and report any information about potential threats to their local law enforcement agency. If the public prefers to provide information anonymously, please call "Crime Stoppers" by dialing (800) 222-TIPS (8477), or texting the letters TIPLA plus your tip to CRIMES (274637), or by using the website http://lacrimestoppers.org.

This is it! The Grand Finale of the 21st Annual Summer Concert Series in the Amphitheater at Farnsworth Park. 568 E. Mt. Curve Ave. Altadena, CA 91001.

The show starts at 7:00 PM. Hope to see you all there!

Lead singer Dean Colley has been performing in rock bands since 1982, after leaving the University of Southern California, where he was studying biology. 15 years of playing in bars and regional fairs followed playing rock and roll covers with other local musicians. All the while, people began taking notice of Dean’s ever more prominent resemblance to Neil Diamond. Soon, audience members were asking Dean if he did any Neil Diamond songs.

A short time later, a local businessman asked Dean if he’d like to put together a tribute to Neil Diamond. Dean accepted the challenge and began studying the songs of the legendary singer/songwriter. After a trial version of Dean as Neil Diamond in a small club, he was offered a chance to perform for a community concert put on by a local Kiwanis club. From there, the show became known as “Hot August Night”, after the title of Neil Diamond’s live album recorded at the Greek Theater.

Many versions of the band followed. Players came and went. However, a chance audition for a tribute show for military personnel in Japan introduced him to a whole new level of players. These musicians were seasoned professionals and put a whole new spin on Dean’s presentation. After arriving home after the tour of Japan, Dean convinced the band to play in Hot August Night. This led to working with better musicians and an outstanding presentation.
Today, Hot August Night has played casinos, corporate parties, fairs, and clubs all over the United States, Japan, Canada, and England.

Hot August Night has played major showrooms in Reno NV, Laughlin, NV, Las Vegas NV, Carson City NV, Minden NV, Tucson, Phoenix, Yuma, AZ, Lincoln OR, Seattle WA, Atsugi Japan, Iwakuni Japan, Oxford England,Bettendorf IA, Edmonton Canada,Stone Mountain GA,Toulumne, San Diego, Hollywood, Anaheim, Hollywood, Beverly Hills CA,and Palm Springs CA.

September is California Pedestrian Safety Month

Agency Logo
Wednesday September 6, 2017, 9:51 AM

LASD - Los Angeles County Sheriffs Dept Information Bureau (SIB)

Advisory: September is California Pedestrian Safety Month Remember! Pedestrians Don’t Have Armor

The California Office of Traffic Safety is again announcing that September is “California Pedestrian Safety Month” which began last year in response to the rising number of pedestrians being killed and injured on California roadways.

Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department will be joining with other law enforcement agencies, city and state transportation agencies, pedestrian advocates and walking clubs to promote public awareness aimed at both drivers and pedestrians alike to always be aware of each other and share the road responsibly.
 
This month draws attention to the 892 pedestrians who were killed on California roadways in 2016 alone, accounting for over 24 percent of all roadway deaths in the state, up from 17 percent just a decade ago. In 2016, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies investigated 35 pedestrian fatal collisions and another 69 major injury collisions. Most injuries are life changing and permanent.  Deputies will join the effort by conducting pedestrian safety enforcement operations throughout the month.

The department has mapped out locations over the past several years where pedestrian collisions have occurred along with the violations that led to those collisions. Traffic Officers working overtime and others on routine patrol will be focusing enforcement both on drivers as well as pedestrian who violate traffic laws.

Both drivers and walkers are cautioned to put down the cell phones, since electronic distractions are seen in increasing numbers of pedestrian crashes.  Other factors for drivers include unsafe speed and failure to see and yield to pedestrians in crosswalks and intersections.  For pedestrians, the major dangers are jaywalking and thinking that they can be seen at night, especially while wearing dark clothing. To learn about the dangers of being a pedestrian, who is at risk and safety tips visit Pedestrian Safety.
  
The California Office of Traffic Safety continues to remind motorist that “Pedestrians Don’t Have Armor.”  This public service announcement highlights the importance of pedestrian safety awareness, regardless of whether one is on foot or behind the wheel.  

Funding for this enforcement campaign is provided to Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

MEDIA NOTES: To schedule an interview regarding the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Traffic Safety Operations, please contact Sergeant Robert L. Hill at 323-890-5400 or via email at RLHill@lasd.org.
