Good riddance to Dan Watson, he never really understood South Pas. Hopefully the era of traffic "stings" is over and the department can get back to community policing instead of the Chief grandstanding to get into the papers.

The selection panel theory sounds great; however, lets just see if the Pasadena Police Officers Association get their wish with a certain retired South Pasadena Police SERGEANT being hire as Chief. Do we have another Maywood or Bell here?

That makes sense since I saw him at the jeweler getting his pinky rings polished.

S. Pasadena should call Pasadena City Manager Beck and ask him how it's done.

I would suggest that perhaps "South Pasadena Resident" doesn't know what the people of South Pasadena want from their police department, especially since he appears to be from Chula Vista. The pedestrian stings that he/she complains about resulted in many positive comments from the residents and business owners in the vicinity who were tired of taking their lives in their hands when crossing the street. In the more than 8 years I was in South Pasadena, at least two pedestrians were killed while crossing in crosswalks on Huntington Drive, and several students were hit while crossing Fair Oaks. Members of the City Council encouraged more of these operations. The only complaints I received were from people who received citatoins.

I hope the next chief will continue to conduct these operations which are intended to save lives.
