Last Monday, the Altadena Sheriff’s Station deployed Capt. Steve McLean and three deputies to the Coffee Gallery on North Lake Ave. This was the second Coffee with the Captain, and was well attended.
During the time this Examiner was there, about 25 Altadenans came and went, and all had opportunities to talk to Capt. McLean, Lt. Joe Dempsey of the detective bureau, who provides these weekly crime reports, and Dep. LaMark Williams and Sgt. Michael Randenberg of community relations.
Like any law enforcement agency worth its salt, the Sheriff’s Station made sure plenty of coffee and pastries were provided.
Lt. Dempsey reported only three crimes in Altadena on the blotter for the week ending July 23, 2011. Residents who observe suspicious activity or have been the victims of crimes should call the station at (626) 798-1131.
