3 A MESSAGE FROM THE CHIEF TIMOTHY L. DABNEY Dear Mayor, City Council and Community Members, The men and women of the Lompoc Police Department made significant progress in crime prevention and providing top quality law enforcement services to our community in A portion of this success can be attributed to a concerted effort to fill vacant positions and reduce attrition of highly skilled officers and support staff. By the end of the year, all full-time positions within the Lompoc Police Department were filled and Department operations were unhindered by staff shortages. Lompoc continues to be one of the safest communities on the Central Coast. The City realized a 10.9% reduction in total Part 1 Crimes in 2008 as compared to In fact, the 1,440 Part 1 Crimes recorded in 2008 is lower than any annual total realized in the last thirty years. These figures are even more significant as they come on the heels of a 13% reduction of total Part 1 crimes in Statistics only provide a glimpse of our community and public safety related issues. The Lompoc Police Department maintained it focus on gang related crime through a threepronged approach of prevention, intervention and enforcement activities. Officers and staff participated in community meetings and public forums to address neighborhood concerns. They developed partnerships with residents and business owners to customize solutions for their unique concerns. Bicycle patrols, School Resource Officers, drug and G.R.E.A.T. (Gang Resistance Education And Training) classes and federally funded Anti-Gang Initiative targeted patrols and sweeps are just a few examples of the tools used by the Lompoc Police Department to address this insidious threat to the peace and safety of our community. The Lompoc Police Department continued its quest for funding to benefit the community though specialized law enforcement services that would not otherwise be possible with existing resources. Over $700,000 dollars were obtain through grants and other outside funding streams in 2008 to support programs such as specialized narcotics investigations, school resource officers, crimes against women investigations and advocacy, DUI prevention and enforcement, enhanced gang enforcement, alcoholic beverage control, crime prevention programs, seatbelt enforcement, traffic safety, and under-aged drinking prevention. The officers, dispatchers, jailers, community services officers, clerical staff, volunteers and explorers who serve the residents of our City are highly trained professionals who take pride in a job well done and take responsibility for solving the problems that arise in our community. Their dedication to Lompoc and their profession is unabashedly described in the mission statement and core values of our agency. As our city, state, and nation enter perilous economic times in the coming year, the Department s mission and resolve to provide the highest level of professional law enforcement service possible, remains unchanged. Likewise, I stand committed to providing the officers and staff of the Lompoc Police Department with the training and resources they need to be fully supported and equipped to devote their energies to taking care of our City. It is with tremendous pride in the Lompoc Police Department and honor of service to the residents of the City of Lompoc that I present the 2008 annual report. TIMOTHY L. DABNEY Chief of Police LOMPOC POLICE DEPARTMENT - ANNUAL REPORT 2

4 MISSION STATEMENT The mission of the Lompoc Police Department is to provide effective and professional police services, in partnership with the citizens we serve, encouraging mutual respect and innovative problem solving, thereby improving the quality of life in our community. CODE OF ETHICS As a Law Enforcement Officer, my fundamental duty is to serve mankind; to safeguard lives and property; to protect the innocent against deception, the weak against oppression or intimidation, and the peaceful against violence or disorder; and to respect the Constitutional rights of all persons to liberty, equality and justice.

I will never act officiously or permit personal feelings, prejudices, animosities or friendships to influence my decisions. With no compromise for crime and with relentless prosecution of criminal, I will enforce the law courteously and appropriately without fear or favor, malice or ill will, never employing unnecessary force or violence and never accepting gratuities.

Sgt. Nathan Flint continually seeks to elevate the image of the Department.

Flint served as the president of the Lompoc Police Officer s Association in 2006 and He received the prestigious H.

13 Lamar ROOKIE OF THE YEAR John Reyna ELK S TOP COP David Lamar was selected by his peers as Rookie of the Year because of his work ethic and infectiously positive attitude. He stepped up to assume the lead role as Explorer advisor. Officer Lamar s peers have described him as cheerful, always smiling, never complains. He is very thorough, has an open mind and is willing and eager to learn. Officer Lamar is further described as humble, yet very capable, and completes superior investigations for a rookie officer. He seems to handle every call as though it is his most important and that attitude rings true with the citizens of our community. Officer Reyna was selected to receive the honor of Elk s Top Cop as a result of his outstanding performance during Officer Reyna conducted 1,337 officer initiated (On-view) events, completed 296 reports, wrote 223 citations and arrested 138 criminals over the course of the year. Officer Reyna s recognition in no way diminishes the stellar accomplishments of others within our Department. Officer Reyna is one of the first to recognize that our agency achieves success as a team. We do take care of our City as evidenced in the reduction in statistics during 2008 and in the top quality prevention and enforcement efforts we have undertaken. Rachel LOMPOC POLICE DEPARTMENT - ANNUAL REPORT 12

14 Delkener ROOKIE OF THE YEAR Non-Sworn Rachel came to work as a dispatcher for the Lompoc Police Department in the summer of 2007 and excelled in her newfound career. She has always pushed her self to be the best that she can in all she does. Her enthusiasm is contagious and her quick grasp of her duties has earned her the respect of peers, and supervisors. Rachel has extraordinary organizational skills and was elected by the LPOA to serve as the Treasurer for the organization. Rachel has been described as a breath of fresh air, composed, helpful and a true professional who enjoys her work. Rachel Delkener was formerly employed as bank teller and was a witness in several forgery cases that occurred at the bank. But more notably, Ms. Delkener and her mother provided key information as to the identity of a prolific bank robber who had held up many banks up and down the central coast including Lompoc. All the investigations to determine the identity of this robber were quickly exhausted, when Rachel and her mother thought they recognized the perpetrator in a BOL and called the police. Their information broke the case and resulted in the conviction of the bank robber for his many crimes. SERIO ARIAS LOMPOC POLICE DEPARTMENT - ANNUAL REPORT 13

15 H. THOMAS GUERRY AWARD Officer Sergio Arias was honored with the 2008 H. Thomas Guerry Award for Superior Performance Meritorious Service. Although a great deal of time has not passed since Officer Arias committed to serve his community as an officer, he has had a tremendous impact in the policing of the City of Lompoc. In 2008 Officer Arias led all other officers of the Lompoc Police Department with 146 arrests. As any seasoned officer knows it is the quality of those arrests that count most. Many of Officer Arias arrests came as the result of his 1,133 officer initiated contacts that were made over and above the calls for service to which he responded. In one incident on April 24, 2008, Officer Arias was off-duty and driving his personally owned vehicle when he observed a known gang member who was wanted for an assault with a deadly weapon that he had committed just days prior. Officer Arias called the Lompoc Public Safety Dispatch Center and coordinated the response of on-duty units facilitating the capture of the wanted felon without incident or injury. Officer Arias used sound tactics and good judgment in coordinating this off-duty enforcement effort. In another case Officer Arias, assisted by fellow officers, responded to a suicidal subject who had told dispatchers that he had a gun and intended to shoot at officers until they were forced to shoot him and facilitate his suicide by cop. The officers responded and formulated a tactical plan to address the situation. While the officers were moving into position the suicidal subject unexpectedly exited his apartment with a telephone in one hand and what appeared to be a gun in the other. As the subject began to move the gun in the direction of officers, Officer Arias grabbed his hand and disarmed the subject. It was learned later that the gun held by the suicidal subject was a replica firearm. Because of Officer Arias abilities in dealing with crimes involving gangs and drugs he has been called upon to assist during special investigations of major crimes that have occurred over the past year. Officer Arias is certainly deserving of the 2008 H. Thomas Guerry Award for Superior Performance. Significant Events in 2008 LOMPOC POLICE DEPARTMENT - ANNUAL REPORT 14

23 GRAFFITI ABATEMENT In July of 2007 the Lompoc Police Department added a Community Services Officer (CSO) with a primary duty of coordinating the Department s graffiti abatement program. This staff member seeks out graffiti in our community, documents the blight, then he/she forwards the information to gang officers and detectives. This person then coordinates the activities of volunteers who spend each Saturday removing graffiti from our City. The faith-based community has taken a lead role in the graffiti abatement program. Each weekend a different church in our community will send volunteers to work in the streets and alleys of Lompoc to eradicate vandalism and improve the image of our community. This program had a nearly immediate impact upon gang graffiti and vandalism in our community and has contributed to several significant arrests of vandals and gang members. VEHICLE ABATEMENT Another Community Services Officer (CSO) is dedicated to keep Lompoc free of abandoned vehicles and other large hazards that clutter City streets. In 2008, CSO Alison Herson was responsible for vehicle abatement. Her responsibilities include the tagging and removal of abandoned vehicles on City streets and private property. The CSO patrols streets looking for abandoned vehicles and responds to citizen reports. Each vehicle is tagged for removal. If the vehicle is not moved voluntarily, or if the owner cannot be located, the vehicle is towed and the owner is issued a citation. In 2008, numerous vehicles were towed for abatement or for being abandoned on the streets of Lompoc. The police department is engaged with citizens in developing strategies to enhance vehicle abatement and improve the quality of life in the neighborhoods of our community.

LOMPOC POLICE VOLUNTEERS Community Service Volunteers continue to be critical to the operations of the Lompoc Police Department.

25 GANG RESISTANCE EDUCATION AND TRAINING In 2008 the Lompoc Police Department adopted the Gang Resistance Education and Training (GREAT) curriculum in local schools.

26 Explorers meet bi-weekly to learn law enforcement principles. In 2008, they assisted with security and traffic control for high school football games, the Lompoc and Santa Maria Holiday Parades, the Special Olympics Car Show, Flower Festival, Spring Arts Festival and many other special events. Also this year the Lompoc Explorers participated in the Paso Robles Explorer Competition. This event is a three day camp where Police Explorers from the Western United States come together to compete in Law Enforcement related tasks such as a timed obstacle course, shooting, investigative scenarios and more. A Pinewood derby was held in November and was a great success. There were 40 cars entered by the local youth. The Pinewood Derby gives an opportunity for families and youth to work together to build and paint their own cars and race them. The Police Activities League continues in their effort to provide a wholesome environment for the youth of our community and create opportunities for kids to interact with local officers in a positive way. EXPLORER POST 700 Several full-time employees began their law enforcement experience as Explorer Scouts. Lompoc Police Explorer Post #700 is an affiliate of the Boy Scouts of America.

27 TRAFFIC ENFORCEMENT Sergeant Edward Lardner is responsible for coordinating traffic enforcement for the Lompoc Police Department. He has authored several grants provided by the California Office of Traffic Safety. Sergeant Lardner has been successful in obtaining State funding of overtime for officers to conduct DUI checkpoints, saturation patrols and seatbelt compliance campaigns. The Traffic Unit focuses enforcement efforts on unlicensed driving, moving and equipment violations, traffic collision investigation and DUI enforcement. In 2008, Officer Leo Garza comprised the Traffic Unit for the Lompoc Police Department. Two grants provide funding for traditional enforcement efforts, DUI checkpoints and seatbelt enforcement. A third grant allows for a more comprehensive enforcement strategy, to include saturation patrols; court stings targeting drivers leaving court after having their license revoked/suspended; and other innovative enforcement practices. The Lompoc Police Department also participates in the Avoid the Twelve DUI grant administered by the Santa Barbara County Sheriff s Department. In 2008, the Lompoc Police Department investigated 425 traffic accidents that occurred in the city limits. See the chart on the next page for statistical information.

34 DISPATCH/JAIL SECTION Nancy Faust is the Dispatch/Jail Section Supervisor. The Lompoc Police Department is unique in that it supports one of the few remaining Type I jails in the State of California. A Type I jail is restricted to hold only pre-sentenced individuals for a period not to exceed 96 hours. Our jail facility allows the Department to save thousands of dollars by not transporting and booking Lompoc prisoners in Santa Barbara County Jail. We not only avoid the cost of transportation, but also avoid a $250 booking fee per prisoner. During 2008 the Lompoc Police Department accepted arrested persons from the Lompoc, Solvang and Buellton substations of the Santa Barbara County Sheriff s Department. The County pays an established booking fee to the City of Lompoc to defray the expenses incurred with these additional inmates. JAIL UNIT The Lompoc Police Department operates a Type I jail facility 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. A total of 2,416 bookings of prisoners occurred during These bookings included 2,057 bookings by Lompoc Police Officers, and 359 contract bookings from other law enforcement agencies as indicated by Lompoc City Jail statistics in the table below: LOMPOC POLICE BOOKINGS ADULTS % Change Male Female Total Adults JUVENILES Male Female Total Juveniles OTHER DEPARTMENT BOOKINGS (Adult Only) Male Female Total Contract Bookings Total Bookings LOMPOC POLICE DEPARTMENT - ANNUAL REPORT 33
