3 Welcome Message from the Chief The Red Bluff Police Department is a full-service Police Department that is currently staffed with twenty-five sworn police officers and ten civilian employees. The Department is divided organizationally into two Divisions. These Divisions are the Operations Division and the Support/ Special Services Division. The Operations Division consists of the Uniformed Patrol Unit. And, for the first time beginning in February 2013 the Red Bluff Police Department also has the assistance of citizen volunteers through our Volunteers In Police Service (VIPS) program. This unit is also managed from the Operations Division of the Department. The Support/ Special Services Division consist of the Investigations Unit, Dispatch Unit, Records Unit and the Community Service Officer Unit. The purpose of the Police Department is to provide for the safety and security of the citizens of Red Bluff. Our goal is to maintain a well equipped and well trained department that can provide a high level of service. The Members of the Police Department are committed to providing Service with Integrity. The Red Bluff Police Department remains committed to providing a high level of quality service to the citizens of Red Bluff. With the assistance of our community partners and allied agency partners, as well as State Grants, we have re-acquired two police officers positions. This has brought us to within just one position of our 2009 sworn staffing levels. This is truly exciting as it is our hope that following the conclusion of our current traffic grant obligation we will once again be able to assign an officer to the Tehama Inter-Agency Drug Enforcement (TIDE) Task Force. During the 2013 the Red Bluff Police Department had a very busy and challenging year. There were significant increases in calls for service as well as increases in violent crimes that certainly challenged our Department. Once again, the members of the Red Bluff Police Department rose up to those challenges and performed admirably. I am very proud of the staff at Red Bluff PD. They work diligently every day to enhance the security and safety of our community. As you read through these pages, it will reflect the high level of activity and challenges as well as the quality and professionalism of the members of the Red Bluff Police Department. Our City is divided into (5) Areas of Responsibility, each headed by a Patrol Sergeant. There is a map on our website that identifies the jurisdictional boundaries of each Area of Responsibility. Each Sergeant is available to respond to questions or concerns about crime and law enforcement services in our city, and your Area of Responsibility. Each Sergeant s addresses are available on-line at I encourage every citizen to read our Annual Report and questions and or comments to the Chief of Police at You may also questions or concerns to the Division Commanders. Paul Nanfito, Chief of Police 2

4 Operations Division Captain Kyle Sanders Calendar year 2013 saw a significant transition in the composition of the Division structure within the Police Department. In July 2013, the Dispatch Unit was transferred from the Operations Division to fall under the umbrella of the Support / Special Services Division. At this same time, the School Resource Officer(s) were moved to the Operations Division along with some of the responsibilities of the Community Service Officer Unit. The Operations Division is now comprised of the Patrol Unit, School Resource Officers, the Traffic Unit, one CSO, and a cadre of VIPS (volunteers). These fine professionals deliver initial and follow up police services to the community seven days a week. The Patrol Unit remains the largest component of the Operations Division and consists of uniformed police officers who respond to calls for service as well as the initial response to emergencies or the report of a crime. This division accounts for most of the Department s measurable workload and is the most visible as they are usually the first point of contact for persons seeking police services. Personnel within the Operations Division, along with others, worked diligently throughout 2013 in the implementation or continuation of several key programs including, but not limited to: Volunteers in Police Services (VIPS) Staff Development / Training Program Traffic Safety Grant All personnel within the Operations Division worked persistently throughout 2013 to address a year filled with challenges. These men and women routinely made sacrifices for the betterment of the Department and to improve the quality of life within the City of Red Bluff. The following charts represent some of the statistical data involving Operations Division personnel.

6 Traffic Officer Program The City of Red Bluff suffers from a significant collision rate and for many years has had one of the highest rates of vehicle versus bicycle collisions when compared with similarly sized communities. Methods to reduce collisions include both education and enforcement. The Department is committed to improving traffic related safety and has designated a fulltime traffic officer to focus on such efforts. As part of our commitment to improving roadway safety, when staffing allowed a portion of 2013 saw two traffic officers assigned to the role. The below chart demonstrates traffic collision statistics and shows that 2013 saw a dramatic decrease in our collision rate. Traffic Collisions Change % Change Fatal Accidents % Injury Accidents % Property Damage Only % Accidents TOTAL TRAFFIC ACCIDENTS % Department personnel once again worked to acquire an Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) grant to assist our agency in costs associated with traffic enforcement efforts. As a result, Red Bluff Police Department was awarded a significant grant from OTS. The grant, totaling $131,825.00, began October 1, 2013 and will conclude one year from that date. The funding from this grant is paying for one fulltime police officer, overtime, equipment, and training. The following is a breakdown of the grant funding allotments: OTS Grant $131,825 Total Police Officer Costs (Including Benefits) $90, Overtime for Enforcement Operations $29, Travel / Training Costs $9, Radar Devices $2,

7 Traffic Officer Program (Continued) While this chart shows a significant increase in total citations issued compared with the previous three years, when examining 2013 data to statistics over the previous 20 years, 2013 was just slightly below average. This current increase can be attributed in large part to having an assigned traffic officer who can focus time and efforts on traffic safety and enforcement.

We sincerely thank all who have helped as we could not have accomplished this without the incredible community support. 8

10 Volunteers in Police Service (VIPS) After two years of planning and organizing, the vision of creating a strong cadre of Volunteers in Police Service (VIPS) came to fruition in Eight VIPS attended a 10-week VIPS Academy that began in late 2012 and concluded with graduation on 2/2/2013. The newly appointed VIPS are: Bill Conrad Daniel Jackson Bev Morris Clay Parker Curt Dahl Lilly Parker Felicia Gould Tim Weatherson VIPS Immediately began contributing to the Department in a number of important and valuable ways.

11 Community Oriented Policing Programs The Police Department divides the City of Red Bluff into five different geographical regions (Areas of Responsibility) and designates each area with a sergeant and one or two officers for community oriented policing purposes. Each Area of Responsibility participates in Neighborhood Watch meetings and the Random Citizen Contact (RCC) program. The RCC program consists of an officer contacting a citizen randomly for no other reason than to connect with them and interact positively outside of a call for service Totals Random Citizen Contacts Neighborhood Watch Meetings Community / School Presentations Area # Area # Area # Area # Area # Totals Sgt.

20 G.R.E.A.T. Program (continued) GREAT Officer Sean Baxter began his duties at VPA on 12/2/2013. While not fulfilling his duties teaching or preparing for the GREAT Program, Officer Baxter performs the role of School Resource Officer focusing primarily on VPA, but also protecting the surrounding areas including two other nearby public schools. The following is a brief overview of some the situations Officer Baxter dealt with during the month of December Highlights of the First 30 Days During his short tenure at VPA (15 actual school days), Officer Baxter has handled a variety of criminal incidents on or near campus including: Narcotics sales Student with drugs Gang related battery Gang graffiti Older (high school) gang members flashing gang signs at Vista Students Suspicious Sex Registrant near campus GREAT Officer Baxter and RBHS SRO Murray have partnered together in addressing Gang issues in both schools: Identification of 27 students claiming Norteno gang affiliation. Identification of 28 students claiming Sureno gang affiliation. Identified several hang out locations for some gang members. Case Highlights On day #2 on campus, while patrolling the area of VPA, Officer Baxter confronted an out of area sex registrant who was parked next to campus. The man was in the back of his pick-up truck with a camper shell concealing him. It is suspected that he was strategically parked to view the children. On day #3, Officer Baxter received a report of several high school aged male juveniles flashing gang signs at Vista students who were on the track during their PE class. While investigating this, he learned that the day before two high school aged gang members had battered two Vista students near campus as they walked home from school. The suspects, who were wearing red, called the Vista students (who were wearing blue) derogatory gang names and then battered them. Both suspects were arrested for battery and committing a crime while participating in a gang. Between day #5 and 8, Officer Baxter investigated three separate battery cases involving Vista Students on or near campus. On Day #10, Officer Baxter cited a Vista student for bringing marijuana to school. In a separate investigation, a Vista student was booked into Juvenile Hall for marijuana sales on campus while six other students were cited for possession of marijuana on campus. 19

21 Support / Special Services Division Lieutenant Dan Flowerdew The Support/Special Services Division is comprised of several units that include Investigations (Detectives), Records, Community Service Officers (CSO), and Dispatch. While each of these units vary greatly in the scope of work performed, all are vital to the mission and goals of the Red Bluff Police Department. The Support/Special Services Division is managed by Lt. Dan Flowerdew. Although the Units within the Support/Special Services Division have been adversely affected by the struggling economy, they are united in their commitment to providing quality services to the City of Red Bluff. INVESTIGATIONS During the calendar year of 2013, the Investigations Unit was comprised of two assigned detectives. Detective Scott Curtis and Detective Brett McAllister. 95 cases assigned, 34 were sex related Significant Cases: Marysa Nichols-Homicide Samuel Forseth-Homicide Scarlett Peterson-Homicide (young child) Detectives Special Skills Computer Forensics Cell phone Forensics A total of 95 cases were assigned to the Investigations Unit for follow-up during this year. The cases ranged from child molestations, rapes, robberies, and assaults with deadly weapons, burglaries and homicide investigations. A breakdown of investigative cases assigned to detectives can be found in the below chart. Also due to staffing levels, Detectives have assisted patrol throughout this year to help fill patrol shifts. Last year (2012) 157 cases were assigned to Detectives. Cases assignments to Detectives are down this year due to multiple factors. Many of these factors can be simply stated: The complexity of the assigned investigative cases is very time consuming and complex and due to only having two assigned Detectives they simply cannot investigate every case. This has caused Lt. Flowerdew to scrutinize the potential investigative cases and some of those cases did not meet the priority level of other cases therefore those cases were either reassigned to patrol or simply not worked. This is very unfortunate but a necessity at this time. Furthermore many of the runaway cases have been assigned to the School Recourse Officer, cases which would normally be investigated by a Detective. 20

22 INVESTIGATIONS (Continued) A total of 34 sex related investigations, 3 homicide investigations and 9 assaults with deadly weapons cases were assigned for detective follow-up. These types of cases involve an extraordinary amount of time to investigate as well as a great deal of investigative knowledge, skill and experience to do so effectively. It is also important to note that Detective Curtis initiated an additional 44 reports on his own. Detective Curtis is in charge of coordinating and scheduling the Red Bluff Police Department sexual offender program sex registration compliance checks. This program is funded by the Shasta County SAFE Grant and is overseen by Lt. Flowerdew in regards to Red Bluff Police Department overall activity and equipment acquisitions.

23 Communications Center Records / Communications Manager Cindee Spurgeon The Dispatch Center is the primary PSAP (Public Safety Answering Point) for the City of Red Bluff. When a dispatcher receives a 911 call, they are trained to ascertain the nature of the call and to transfer the call to the appropriate agency if it is a medical or fire call (Cal-Fire), or a crime or traffic related incident occurring outside the city limits (TCSO or CHP). The dispatchers answer an enormous amount of telephone calls as shown in the below charts: Records/Communications Manager Cindee Spurgeon 2% 1% 15% 0% 911Call Answer Time 2% (0 seconds) Answer Time (0-6 seconds) Excellent(1 ring) (7-12 seconds) Good (2 rings) 80% (13-18 seconds) Average (3 rings) (19-24 seconds) Poor (4 rings) 40+ Dispatcher Erb Dispatcher Hoover Dispatcher McIvor Dispatcher Ochoa 22

25 The Records Unit saw a great many changes in Records Unit In March, Dispatch Supervisor Spurgeon became the acting Records Manager while continuing her duties as a dispatcher. After discussion, City Council approval, and finishing with an application and testing process, Spurgeon successfully promoted to the newly created Police Records / Communications Manager Position in July. When the Records Manager position was vacated in March, Jessica Hoehman came back to the department as a temporary Records Specialist. She was instrumental in keeping the Unit running smoothly during the staffing shortage. In December, Jessica came back to the department full time to fill the Records Specialist s position vacated by Niki Alvarado. During 2013, the Records Unit processed 4,328+ written reports and supplements. They review each report for statistical and routing accuracy, create working files for patrol and detectives and prepare all paperwork sent to the Court, District Attorney s Office and allied agencies. In addition to the reports, Records staff is also responsible for answering records-related phone calls, assisting citizens at the front counter, processing records requests from citizens, criminal justice agencies, insurance companies and others, processing all traffic, criminal and parking citations, paw slips, handling bicycle registrations, completing paperwork associated with sex, arson, narcotic and gang registrations, and a myriad of other duties.

26 Community Service Officers The Red Bluff Police Department s Community Service Officers remained consistently busy during Although staffing for two full time positions was authorized, several months of the year were only staffed by one employee and there were brief periods where this Unit was staffed solely by a volunteer and former CSO s who are now police officers. The Community Service Officers are responsible for a variety of tasks, which include property and evidence collection and processing, vehicle maintenance, animal control, parking enforcement and special event assignments.
