Police in Menifee

San Jacinto, CA

#1 Feb 6, 2006
I have lived in Menifee for almost seven years and have a concern about the public safety. I live in the Lakes Community and would like to comment and make a suggestion to your story:

About three years ago the community began to notice an increased police presence and activity on the east side of Menifee near the lakes community. We have our own security for the Lakes but were very impresseed by the level of police presence in the area. We soon found out that the presence was as a result of the College Campus starting thier own police department.

There was alot of confusion in the beginning regarding wether or not they were the police for Menifee and we soon found that out right away. Then there was question as to wether or not they were real police of just security and that question was answered as well by several news articles about the college police department. We all have a better understanding about who they are and what thier authority is now.

My question is: I noticed in the Californian an article that the Sheriff designates two bodies and a special team of two deputies working Community Police Problems. That does not seem to be enough. Are the Sheriff and San Jacinto College Police working together in the community? If not, Why not? It would seem to me that the college police and the Sheriff could work together and be able to service the community better. Both of these departments are doing a great job!

I recently attended a Menifee Lakes Community meeting and learned that the College Police folded the car theft and burglary spree going on in Menifee Lakes and at the college. I was very happy to hear this had happened since my neighbor had been a victim of this type of crime several months ago. They also have taken alot of drugs, weapons, guns, etc. off the college and off of our streets. One of thier officers even caught the guy robbing people with a gun at the Target shopping center last year. I feel both of these law enforcement agencies would be a great asset to each other and our community. I see the active force there at the college and they are very visible to the public and I sure feel safe knowing that they are right accross the street from me.

Bell Mountain Middle School Administrators and Valley Wide Recreation have echoed my thoughts by saying they too are happy to have them here. What better neighbors to have than police!

Kepp up the good work folks!

Since I'm not from the Hemet area, I don't feel qualified to address the forum. However, your positive approach about having concern for your neighbors, college police involvement in the "car theft" spree, and the compliment you extend to the presence of the area police force lends itself to a meaningful dialogue. Even though I've never been involved with law enforcement matters, I just thought it was a user friendly comment on your part. You express yourself extremely well.
