I support Alhambra Source as often as I can because I believe a free and independent press is vital to the democratic process. No other news outlet with high journalistic standards consistently covers the stories and issues that matter to our community.

Alhambra Police Department to host community picnic, Facebook Live station tour

Alhambra's police department will host a community picnic Tuesday night to give residents a chance to meet personnel in a "casual and informative" manner. 

Held every first Tuesday of August, "Night Out Against Crime" is a free event from 5 to 8:30 p.m. at the police headquarters on 211 South First St. Hot dogs, snacks and entertainment will be provided, according to the flyer.

"Our goal is to have a positive message to the community. This is who we are. This is our station. It's a part of the community,” Sergeant Jerry Johnson told the Alhambra Source.

Interim police chief Jackie Gomez-Whiteley also wants her team to build community on social media. Residents will have the opportunity to take a virtual tour of the station via a Facebook Live video on the Alhambra Police Department's Facebook page.

The tour will begin at the front of the lobby, go through the briefing room and jail, and end at the dispatch booth, where the station receives 911 calls. 

Johnson, who will narrate the tour in English, said they will go live starting between 4:30 p.m. and 5 p.m. Taking into account the diverse immigrant communities in Alhambra, Johnson said that there will be language translations in Mandarin, Cantonese, and Spanish for every talking point in real time. 

“If I fall on my face, don’t laugh at me too hard. I barely learned how to use Facebook Live. I’m going to learn and have some fun with it," Johnson said.
