Citizen Volunteer Patrol members Ron O’Neil and Eric Aguilar were recently awarded the Volunteer of the Year awards from the Redlands Police Department’s Volunteer Unit. The volunteers are selected by their supervising staff, based on outstanding work and contributions to the community.

Ron O’Neil is currently an active and valued member of the Redlands Police Department Citizen Volunteer Patrol Ranger Unit. O’Neil attended the 25th Citizen Volunteer Academy in April 2010. In addition to the Police Department, O’Neil has volunteered in the Redlands community for more than 30 years in various organizations including the Redlands Community Hospital. Characterized by his humility and willingness to help, O’Neil is held in high regard by his peers and friends. Mention Ron’s name and you will hear his colleagues and supervisors speak of his calm, quiet, giving and pleasant demeanor.

“He’s the guy who will bend over backwards to help you if you need it,” stated Vic Ramos. O’Neil is currently operating as the volunteer Quartermaster in addition to his other commitments in the Volunteer unit. Most recently O’Neil helped to organize the Volunteer Veteran’s float in the recent Veteran’s Day Parade. O’Neil’s “Go Get It” attitude has not only gained the respect of his peers but the admiration of his department.                              

Eric Aguilar attended the Volunteer academy in November 2010. Eric is an active member of the Redlands Police Citizen Volunteer Patrol. He also volunteered at the Redlands Community Center Recreation Center from 2008 to 2010. He is a student in Street Smart, where he is a master red belt and preparing to test for his provisional black belt. Aguilar is currently attending school at San Bernardino Valley College with a major in criminal justice.

Aguilar’s excitement in helping and willingness to work regardless of challenges speaks volumes to those who meet him. Aguilar was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at a young age, but has never allowed that to stop him or be an excuse not to attain his goals. Despite being told it would be medically impossible for him ride a bicycle, Aguilar would not allow fate to set his destiny.

The Redlands Police Department recognized employees and volunteers and welcomed new members to the department during a ceremony Tuesday morning, Dec. 10.

Police Chief Mark Garcia presented Chief’s Commendations to two residents, two department employees and a business. Lifesaving awards were presented to an RPD officer, five members of the Redlands Fire Department and a civilian member of the public for their actions in treating a driver who suffered a heart attack. The department recognized its Explorer of the Year, Volunteer of the Year, Reserve Officer of the Year, Officer of the Year and Civilian Employee of the Year. The department also welcomed four new employees.

During the upcoming holidays, Building and Safety staff will be available on a limited basis for inspections between Dec. 20 and Jan. 5.

Inspections will be available on Dec. 23, 26, 27, 30 and 31 and on Jan. 2, by calling (909) 798-7536 one business day in advance of the inspection date. Please leave your name, phone number and the type of inspection requested. An inspector will call to confirm the inspection date and time. Because of the holiday schedule, City staff will only be available for a limited number of inspections during that time.

Redlands Police on Wednesday arrested a prolific robber the FBI dubbed the “Button-down Bandit,” who held up six Southern California banks since Nov. 15.

David Michael Younger, 49, of Corona, was arrested Wednesday afternoon, Dec. 11, in Montclair, one day after the Pacific Western Bank at 218 E. State St. was robbed.

The City’s weekly Thursday Market Night and Saturday Morning Farmers’ Market will take a break during the holidays.

Market Night will not take place on the Thursdays following Christmas and New Year’s Day, Dec. 26 and Jan. 2. Market Night will resume on Thursday, Jan. 9.

The Saturday Morning Farmers’ Market will be dark on Saturday, Dec. 28. The Farmers’ Market will resume the following Saturday, Jan. 4.

As the year comes to a close, the Redlands Animal Shelter is looking for donors who can help subsidize the rising cost of spaying and neutering animals for adoption.

In 2012 the shelter found homes for 963 dogs and 456 cats. Adoptions for 2013 are on pace to equal the 2012 numbers. While space at the shelter, located at 504 N. Kansas St. is limited, the Animal Shelter – a division of the Redlands Police Department -- endeavors to find homes for every adoptable animal it takes in.

The City of Redlands Household Hazardous Waste Drop-Off facility will be closed Saturday, Dec. 28, due to the holiday weekend. Normal hours for the site, Saturdays from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., will resume Saturday, Jan. 4.

  2. Sixth Annual Community Day of Service
    • Start time: 08:00am
    • End date: Saturday, April 26th
    • End time: 12:00pm
    • More than 1,000 volunteers are expected to turn out April 26 for the Sixth Annual Day of Service, sponsored by the City of Redlands, the Redlands Service Club Council and Mormon Helping Hands, but there’s still need for more volunteers. This year volunteers will be working on community projects in four separate areas and, for the first time, expanding to the City of Highland.
      Volunteers will spread out weeding, planting, mulching, painting and repairing at Heritage Park on Orange Avenue, between Nevada and Iowa streets, the site of last year’s massive volunteer effort; Israel Beal Park, on River View Drive, south of the Santa Ana River Wash and west of Orange Street; the east end of Redlands Boulevard, along the median and the roadside; and Highland Community Park in Highland.
      The Volunteer Day of Service has become an annual event, after the stunning success of past years. Planning takes nearly a year with the City and the Redlands Service Club Council in partnership with Mormon Helping Hands.
      Along the two-mile stretch of Redlands Boulevard, volunteers will clean up and replace plants in the median, plant trees, mulch the median and shoulders and pick up trash. The City prepared for the project more than a week ago, contracting to trim all the trees along the stretch of road.
      At Israel Beal Park volunteers will remove weeds and tree stumps and replant areas of the park.
      At Heritage Park, volunteers have already begun working on irrigation in preparation for Saturday’s efforts, which will add concrete borders and decomposed granite in picnic areas and lay 20,000 square feet of sod.
      At Highland Community Park volunteers will replace the baseball infield, repair and repaint backstops and repair trash receptacles.
      The Redlands Service Club Council was formed in 2008 to offer assistance to the City through cooperative work projects and capital improvements. Working with the City’s Quality of Life Department, the Service Club Council made renovation of Sylvan Park its first major project for 2009. Since then the Service Club Council and Mormon Helping Hands have taken on increasingly ambitious projects at Prospect Park, the Redlands Bowl, landscaping the Redlands Boulevard median, and last year, creating an entire park in a day at Heritage Park.
      Individuals, families, community groups, businesses and other organizations are encouraged to participate in the workday. For information or to sign up, visit www.redlandsservice.org or contact City of Redlands Volunteer Services Coordinator Elizabeth Marin at (909) 798-7540.

  4. Prescription Drug Take-Back Day
    • Start time: 10:00am
    • End date: Saturday, April 26th
    • End time: 02:00pm
    • On April 26 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. the Redlands Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will give the public its eighth opportunity in three years to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs. Bring your pills for disposal to the Redlands Police Annex, 30 Cajon St. (The DEA cannot accept liquids or needles or sharps, only pills or patches.) The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.
      Last October, Americans turned in 324 tons (over 647,000 pounds) of prescription drugs at over 4,114 sites operated by the DEA and its thousands of state and local law enforcement partners. When those results are combined with what was collected in its seven previous Take Back events, DEA and its partners have taken in over 3.4 million pounds—more than 1,700 tons—of pills.
      This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs. Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet. In addition, Americans are now advised that their usual methods for disposing of unused medicines—flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash—both pose potential safety and health hazards.
      DEA is in the process of approving new regulations that implement the Safe and Responsible Drug Disposal Act of 2010, which amends the Controlled Substances Act to allow an “ultimate user” (that is, a patient or their family member or pet owner) of controlled substance medications to dispose of them by delivering them to entities authorized by the Attorney General to accept them. The Act also allows the Attorney General to authorize long term care facilities to dispose of their residents’ controlled substances in certain instances.
