Chula Vista Police Department Summer Review
Chula Vista Celebrates
National Night Out
Police Chief Roxana Kennedy, joined by Mayor Mary Casillas Salas, Councilmember John McCann, Councilmember Stephen Padilla, Deputy City Manager Kelly Bacon, Asst. City Manager Maria Kachadoorian, and Fire Chief Jim Geering all welcome the public to the annual event

National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live. National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community. Furthermore, it provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances.

Millions of neighbors take part in National Night Out across thousands of communities from all fifty states, U.S. territories and military bases worldwide on the first Tuesday in August. 
A large crowd awaits demonstrations from Fire and Police: Vehicle Rescue, Mobile Field Force, K-9

Chief Kennedy and Mayor Salas light the night for NNO
Chula Vista Police and Fire's NNO event was highlighted with a VIP kickoff including the Mayor, Councilmembers, Chief of Police, and Fire Chief.  In addition to several hands-on booth displays, where the public can get close up information on the services that public safety provides the community, there were also live demonstrations by Police and Fire to show what skills and tactics they use to protect and save lives. 
Display booths where visitors get an up close and personal look at the services public safety provides.  Vendors were also welcome to display services and products related to community safety and service

Many Participated in this important Community Event:



Shoe and Sock Drive 2017
A great partnership between Chula Vista Police Foundation, Payless ShoeSource, the CVPD School Resource Officer Unit, and The Chula Vista Police Explorers 
The annual event is a partnership between the Chula Vista Police Foundation and the Community where each year CVPD School Resource Officers work closely with school principals, school nurses, and South Bay Community Services Counselors to identify deserving boys and girls under 18 years of age who live, go to school, or attend counseling services in Chula Vista.  
And this year was a record breaking event!
"Thanks to the people of San Diego County who graciously donated almost $10,000, we were able to provide 383 children with new shoes, socks and backpacks. As always, the event could not be possible without Southbay Community Services, The Chula Vista Mall and Payless Shoe Source.  The event went smoothly and we were able to serve almost 400 people in approximately 4 hours."  -SRO Natalie Caceres

Thanks to all who gave!

The First Annual Employee Appreciation and Retiree Reunion Lunch, 2017
 This year, in addition to the annual Employee Appreciation Lunch, Chief Kennedy thought it was time to formally invite back many former and retired members of the CVPD family, and use the occasion to connect, catch up, and remember.  The event was a huge success!
