Alhambra Source and the Alhambra Police Department are launching an initiative to engage more minority residents in the community. As part of this new project, we're re-launching our "Ask an Alhambra cop" column with Sgt. Jerry Johnson. Got a question? Submit it below or send it to info@alhambrasource.org!

What does the Alhambra Police Department consider the most significant local policing issue?

Our most significant local policing issue is maintaining our historically low crime levels — crime rates have continually gone down over the last decade — while at the same time maintaining quality of life. This is truly a challenge when we consider that crime cannot be completely eliminated.

Part of the challenge we have is engaging the community to be a part of crime prevention by being good witnesses and good citizens, reporting suspicious activity, and taking protective measures to keep themselves and others from being victims. That being said, we have seen a significant increase in robberies and a slight increase in residential burglaries, to which we are paying attention. Additionally, we are paying close attention to recent parolees released from prison, along with those that are under the supervision of county probation officers.

Policing issues are very complex and can change frequently. We do our best to adapt to the ever-changing priorities. 


Alhambra Source y la Policía de Alhambra están empezando una iniciativa para involucrar a más residentes de la minoría en la comunidad. Como parte de este nuevo proyecto, estamos relanzando nuestro "Pregunte a un cop Alhambra" columna con el sargento Jerry Johnson. ¿Tienes una pregunta? Enviar por debajo o enviarlo a info@alhambrasource.org!

Que considera el departamento policial de Alhambra el problema de más  significancia para la policía local?

El problema más significante es el mantener nuestros bajos niveles de crimen, cuyo historial ha sido bajo – los números continuamente han bajado durante la última década – mientras mantenemos la calidad de vida.  Verdaderamente es un reto al tomar en cuenta que el crimen no puede eliminarse completamente. 

Parte del reto es tener una relación con la comunidad que les convenza unirse a la prevención criminal siendo buenos testigos, ciudadanos y, que reporten actividad sospechosa al mismo tiempo que toman medidas seguras para evitar que ellos y otros se conviertan en víctimas. Habiendo dicho esto, hemos visto un aumento de significancia en robos al igual que un pequeño aumento en robos residenciales, a lo cual damos atención.  Además, se da bastante atención a aquellos que recién han  salido de prisión al igual que los que están bajo la supervisión de los oficiales del departamento de probación.   

Asuntos policiales son muy complejos y pueden cambiar con frecuencia.  Hacemos lo que se puede en adaptar a las prioridades que suelen cambiar. 


阿市新闻和阿市警察局将合作来更好的为社区的少数族裔居民服务。做为新项目的一部分,我们将启动一个“咨询阿市警察”专栏,由Jerry Johnson警官来回答你的问题。请将你的问题发至:info@alhambrasource.org 谢谢 或在下面提交。 

阿罕布拉市警察局的最重要的本地治安问题?

我们最重要的本地治安问题是保持低犯罪率。在过去十年内犯罪率在不断下降,同时要保证我们生活质量不变。这是一个真正的挑战,因为犯罪是不可能被完全消灭的。

做为挑战的一部分,我们要继续和社区合作来预防犯罪。作为优秀的目击者和市民,他们可以报告可疑行为,采取行为来保护自己和周围的人,避免成为犯罪的受害者。虽然这么说,我们最近发现抢劫案有大幅增加,入市盗窃案有小幅增加。我们已经对这些案子加强注意。另外,我们加强对最近从监狱释放的假释人员的关注,同时也对已经在县假释官监督下的假释人员同样的关注。

治安问题是一个很复杂的事情,而且非常多变。我们将根据不断的变化来优先考量做出最佳变化。

Thanks for your note — we've corrected the title. We appreciate your help in making our site as accurate as possible. Please let us know if you're interested in helping us translate more stories into Chinese! -Nasrin Aboulhosn, Managing Editor

I can't believe the Chinese title of this story: 最大的問題在阿罕布拉警方 -- The biggest problem is Alhambra Police! So, there are many problems: crime, traffic, graffiti, ... but the biggest one is the police! That implies the police may be corrupt, incompetent, shorthanded, ... "Alhambra's biggest policing issue" can be translated as either 阿罕布拉市最大的執法問题 or 阿罕布拉市最大的治安問题.

Good to read that Alhambra's crime rate is relatively low and hopefully Alhambra Police department continues trying to maintain it at its low level
